Loosen up on the Strings

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Warnaco Group

Pros- Good Benefits
- Hours that allowed for a decent work-life balance
- Nice, helpful, respectful, team-oriented co-workers

Cons- Compensation is below fair market value - even amidst a down market

- Low morale

- 360 performance reviews where employees rate superiors appeared to be just a front since the data collected on surveys were only filed away with no serious consideration or thoughts into improvements.

- Company does not manage expectations with regards to roles and responsibilities that are communicated. Many additional demands and expectations were made up along the way, further widening the gap between job description and compensation. Role became a "catch all" for all the tasks that sales, marketing and design teams no longer wanted to be bothered with.

- Company was reluctant in embracing much needed newer technology and used antiquated internal sales, product and data programs that were probably relevant in the 1980's. No exaggeration by asking you to conjure up images of "DOS." Standard unnecessary printing of vast reports led to excessive waste of paper and resources.

- HR personnel could use more discretion and professionalism with regards to the manner in which they talk about the hardest working employees behind closed doors with personal information they've been entrusted with.

Advice to Senior ManagementExecutive leadership, needs to trust their management teams enough to give them room to breath. I did not hold a management level position, but was a firsthand witness to how resistant the executive leadership was in loosening up on the reigns on their management teams. This stranglehold naturally trickled down to all the other levels in the hierarchy.

There is such a thing as too many meetings. Don't disrespect your employees by ALWAYS calling them during their much needed vacations or personal time off (ie. birth of a child) for nonsense issues that don't constitute as emergencies. This is an absolute no no and in fact calls into question your ability to lead.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not the company to work for if you're looking for a promotion

I have been working at Warnaco Group


Pros: Great benefits, summer fridays, discounts on ck jeans and underwear,… Cons: Like I mentioned in the heading..if you're looking to work in a corporate company because you want to grow in your career and climb up… Advice to Senior Management: Management should really learn to appreciate their team. A lot of the lower level positioned employees do majority of the work,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

My experience at Warnaco was very satisfying and I would have stayed forever if the company wasn't sold.
