Pros

Exposure to runway experience and rich inspiration that builds up to a collection as well as some celebrity visits here and there.

Cons

Needs more structure and content for interns to actually be learning something or having some kind of creative input, not just organizing binders and pinning up sketches.

Advice to Management

Although it was amazing to just have the exposure to design meetings and illustrators and the behind the scenes work of the collection, there weren't any creative work that was required of me and therefore learned nothing much more than just some organizational work...i have a line on my resume and that's about it.

    Pros

    Work isn't very difficult Get to wear casual clothes daily

    Cons

    The upper management in my department is completely demotivating. They posses the characteristics that are the complete opposite of what makes a good leader. Constantly looking to blame someone when there is a mistake. Everyone above the manager level is extremely awkward and socially inept. Micromanagement. Unwillingless to listen to ideas/suggestions that go against how they think things should be working even if the suggestion can strengthen a control or provide increased efficiency to a project. They are extremely inefficient; would rather sit and speculate for hours on why something is done a certain way when it could just be answered with a quick 10 minute phone call.

    Advice to Management

    When you ask your employees "how we can make this a better work environment?" actually mean it! Don't ask just to say you asked and then not listen.
