It was my dream job and I miss the job. Sorry to see company change.

I worked at The Jones Group full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

It used to be the company--classes, training programs, great benefits, bonuses, and employee discount.

Cons

Every division has different rules. You could have the same position in one division and leave at 3 o'clock, while in another division you might work through a state of emergency snow day. To top it off you might sit next to the person who can leave early. Managers are part of a cliché and do not see the big picture easily. The atomsphere lends to bullying and favoritism. Design and its elements are always chaging to no avail, while directors never change and you see many people losing jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Jones group always had excellent values overall. However, I have witnessed top managers being abusive by imitating a persons disability. By making an employee stay on a day which state declared an emergency. By suggesting that a vendor should comply with company wishes because they were "boyfriend' to employee.
