I worked at Perry Ellis International

Pros

There are good opportunities for learning. Whether that be in Wholesale or retail planning, Oracle applications or about the apparel industry in general, it is a good place to learn. Some employees call it 'The Perry Ellis University'.

Cons

They significantly under-pay compared to their peers in the industry. Communication between management and employees is very poor. Although the company is traded on NASDAQ, it is and is run like a family-owned company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees and value them. Do not see them as people you can replace anyways. Try to give them joy in work and remember that motivation is not strictly in dollar figures, which happens to be an area where PEI does not do very well.
