I worked at The Jones Group full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good environment, company believes in their people, charitable organization, well know brand names, gym facilities, helpful co-workers, early Fridays all year long.

Cons

Personal commute was very tiring but expected in the Greater New York area. Telecommuting allowed in emergency situations or if weather related but otherwise not encouraged.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The layoff of 18% of the workforce was unexpected, but handled well. I think more warning signs could have been given. There was a lot of shock when it happened and not much explanation given, other than Retail Sales were bad.

    Pros

    Work is challenging and I am kepy busy, which I prefer. Employees are friendly. Time off is good. Early Fridays. Summer/Fall bbq and Holiday party. Bonus at end of year. Exceptional discount on brand products at company stores

    Cons

    Very rarely promotes from within. Management puts up with workers who should do more while dumping on their coworkers. Some areas are too tighly controlled where others are allowed to do what they want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the employees you are overlooking as most are willing to and can do much more for the company if given the opportunity.
