    I have been working at The Jones Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    good starting off point; get your foot in the door; get a big corporation on your resume; learn a lot

    Cons

    any real learning you might want (ie learning about the fashion industry) you really do on your own; i learned a lot about excel; the particular department i was in had a few bullies who talked down to you, were outright rude at times, and had been reported to HR multiple times but nothing was done; i reported her to my manager and she then stopped talking to me like she was a child. Not an enjoyable work environment but manageable until something better comes along

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your "lowest" assistants, they are getting the brunt of the bad vibes and can give good advice on improvements.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

    No opinion of CEO
