    Pros

    A great working environment. Co-workers are very nice.

    Cons

    Right now, there is no downside. It's better to have more sizes of cloth and shoes.

    Pros

    Great pay and great benefits as it is a 2.5 billion dollar textile company. Health insurance is amazing and even cheaper than Kering Group.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of communication from corporate. Very outdated POS, but these complaints are not really a big deal. This place is great to work for!


  3. Big company, good pay, good benefits

    Pros

    Big company, expanding rapidly in the U.S. Great benefits package at very low cost to employee. Good pay if you are a seller, of course.

    Cons

    Going through restructuring at the top levels, so there is uncertainty on the ground level for retail stores. Not sure where the cards are going to fall.

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly coworkers. The sample sale was always a hit.

    Cons

    The higher management should step up and do some real work. Very hard to be promoted.

    Ermenegildo Zegna is an amazing company to work for; the GM, however, ruined my time there.

    Pros

    The atmosphere is great, along with the product we sell. They take good care of their employees and lead them in a direction that is most successful for their career choice.

    Cons

    Their way of processing incoming and outgoing distribution is a little out dated, which leaves room for many mistakes when involving inventory control.

    Advice to Management

    Do not micro manage; we are all adults and and were hired for a reason. Please let us do our jobs.

    Pros

    Quality product - the best made to measure in the market

    Cons

    Manufacturing company playing at Retail - MICRO MANAGEMENT AT ALL LEVELS - there is even a tutorial on how to serve a client a glass of water !!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Micro management means that you don't trust your employee to preform their job at a high level.

    Pros

    Absolutely beautiful product with exceptional quality, nice legacy, admirable vertical integration

    Cons

    Experience consistent with previous reviews. Low pay for extensive amount of work? Check. Doing work of 2 positions? Check. Out of date IT? Check. Culture of blame? Check Micro manage? Check. If all this sounds good to you, you're going to love it here. If this sounds like your worst nightmare; you may want to decline any offer.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think management actually wants any advice. However, if they wanted to stem the tide of good people leaving; they would do well to really listen to and at least consider implementing some of the ideas of current employees. There is nothing progressive, fresh or new about your approach to fashion and retail. The retail landscape is continuing to change and you're in danger of being left behind.

    Pros

    The product quality is excellent (except the jacket zippers) but you can work with Zegna products for wholesalers and have a more pleasant experience.

    Cons

    - Massive disorganization in regards to nearly everything - Constantly being mislead or misinformed in an attempt to motivate by fear - A POS system and retail operations system that is archaic and needlessly complex - Little to no regard to the sales staff - Too many supervisors and artificially created roles which leads to disorganization, unnecessary aggression and competition internally. - Nearly no interest in training and development of staff

    Advice to Management

    The "training" is a joke, and the system highly slanted against development. Less forcus on numbers only and more on the complete package.

    Pros

    Great exposure to luxury brands. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Low pay for extensive amount of work. Not getting recognized for a job well done. Being treated like a number instead of a person. It doesn't matter how long you've been with the company, you'll get tossed aside and forget everything you've done for this company when they find someone to replace you.

    Advice to Management

    More communication is needed. If your team is managing the store better than you are, changes need to be made. Recognize your team's potential.
