    I worked at Fendi (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    you do meet some great people who truly love what they do

    Cons

    people are not treated equally
    people are burned out as a result of excessive turnover
    working hard is not as important as being part of the right click
    major lack of professionalism and respect

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat everyone the same, even if they are not italian or french
    work should be considered during work hours not 24/7
    value those who work hard, not only those who are coming in new or who are affiliated with the right people

    Intern

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Fendi

    Pros

    Able to work with different departments and open area.

    Cons

    Employees formed cliques and half of them did not even know who their co-workers were (roughly less than 100 in Corporate office)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build bonding experiences, this will create less turnover.

    I worked at Fendi as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - fairly interesting major project
    - office is on 5th Ave

    Cons

    - no compensation
    - no intern program fun activities
    - not enough work to fill my time while I was there
    - everyone hated their jobs it seemed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PAY YOUR INTERNS! I did more work (and some of the same work!) than the crappy temp I sat next to while I interned there.

    Current Employee - Sales Associate

    I have been working at Fendi full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good name for your resume.

    Cons

    Terrible work environment, terrible upper management they will toss you any chance they have. Upper management does not care about people under them you get treated worse than the fur they sell. Very UN functional, after you make a sale you need to make sure the customer won't leave in rage, just because the computer will take 20 minutes to process, will turn off on you at least 3 times while your customer is staring at you. You supposed to call 5 random people a day and ask them to buy a fendi bag. At the end of all your hard work, if somebody else comes around the corner, no matter how long you have been working for them, you will hear that you are not a good fit for fendi,and get thrown out like 5 other people before you. Its paid slavery!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget about Karma,the way you treat your employees is unhuman.

    Former Employee - Junior Analyst in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Junior Analyst in New York, NY

    I worked at Fendi as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Corporate sample sales. The interns were pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    High employee turnover, as what seems almost everyone working there is either a temp or full-time employee. Extremely snobby and pretentious work environment, especially coming from the few full time employees that actually work there. Open floor plan, but my department was downstairs and I was the only one upstairs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the work force and show employee appreciation by not having a revolving door of temps and interns.

    Realistic view of the fashion industry

    Former Employee - Human Resources Intern in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Human Resources Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at Fendi as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Understand more about the fashion industry in a general sense
    - Access to corporate sales

    Cons

    - No one really communicates in the office, and this lack of communication can be really frustrating.
    - Laptops and computers are extremely ancient and slow, which means that you need an abundant amount of patience and optimism that they don't crash.
    - High turnover rates for people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your employees in the long run so they can stay loyal to the brand. This will boost morale for everyone. Communication is also really crucial.

    One of the Worst Places I've Ever Worked

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I have been working at Fendi full-time

    Pros

    Corporate sample sales, no websites are blocked so you can freely search for new jobs!

    Cons

    Low employee morale! Employees were forced and threatened to go the holiday party. Very pretentious work environment, with insulting employees<<the ones that stay there. Employee retention is extremely low. I saw 13 people resign in 5 months and 2 fired for no apparent reasons. If you're looking for a satisfying work environment stay away from this office. It's horrific!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs new management!
