Pros

flexibility allowed when needed by certain directors
big enough company to grow, only if allowed to transfer to other departments

Cons

Favortism is shown to senior employees by managers and take advice for hiring and promotion procedures. You are scorned and screamed at for non related issues and then apologized in private or over the phone when director finds out you want to report this to HR. You are always discouraged from going to HR and afraid to lose your job. Personal information is quickly exposed by management, exapmles: personal matter, salary and end of year review. sbu is very unprofessional and run by intimidation.

Advice to Management

Management should review all communication of director and should take a no tolerance approach where unfairness and unethical behavior. Emails, messenger and phone records should be reviewd. Good employees should be rewarded not punished.

    Pros

    -met excellent co-workers and made good friends
    -learned to build tough skin and workout problems on my own

    Cons

    -micro-managing, director(s) claim they're open to suggestions yet that's not true. Uncalled for manual work and paper waste is a result of managers "being open to new suggestions", yet the company claims to be "eco-friendly"
    -excessive fowl language from director(s)
    -directors have random gossip meetings while expecting employees to not speak
    -directors have no sense of confidentiality
    -HR department is not there for the employees but there to protect the company
    -managers lack people, ethics, professional skills. They're hired solely because they're friends or family of upper management leading to power trips
    -recognition is made only on mistakes
    -ample amounts of intimidation by directors to their employees

    Advice to Management

    Confidentially survey your employees on the performance of their managers and directors. Employees are scared to speak up because of management intimidation.

    This is a good company but management needs more communication to help departments perform better.

    Pros

    Good company to work after college and to get experience in the fashion industry. Company is in good location and staff is friendly.

    Cons

    poor management communication

    Poor employee training and oppportunity for promotions

    Management needs to work on moving the correct people to the
    Right departments

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is not really aware of the details and workload of lower level employees.
    They should get more involved with supervisors and communicate more. This really affects productivity.
