I have been working at Warnaco Group full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Field locations are given independent decision making authority to satisfy customers. Corporate support is good and encourages questions from the field.

Cons

CEO doesn't practice what she preaches, always looking out for number one while pretending to care for the little guy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide feedback to the top when message is not resonating with the intended recipient. When in the field, interact with employees more to get candid feedback.

    I have been working at Warnaco Group as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great brands, lots of potential

    Cons

    Bad management and work atmosphere. All different brands were so isolated from each other and there was no team spirit. All workers including management talked about each other, it made it hard to build relationships and trust your colleagues. There was no monthly reviews or meetings at all with the head of different sectors, my senior said to me before "sure no one knows what they are doing, its about figuring it" when I asked for guidance on a project. There was also nowhere to move up in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to communicate better. Build a better atmosphere so workers like coming into work. Stop talking about employees when others are in earshot. Organise regular meetings and assessments.

    I have been working at Warnaco Group full-time

    Pros

    The work conditions are good and the environment is informal, managers are in general flexible and understanding, and some are very qualified and care about employees. Corporate information flow from semior management to employees has improved.

    Cons

    Projects are often started but never finished, it is hard to find out who is accountable for what. The high level goals are more or less clear, but the path to get there is usually pretty vague and changing, which makes planning hard, as well as getting any commitment from stakeholders.
