    Pros

    Freedom to manage your own role, friendly co-workers, invites to celebrity events, pride in working for a storied house, access to private sales.

    Cons

    Lengthy work hours, low salary compensation, not a lot of room to grow, a lot of meetings.. but no effective communication.

    Advice to Management

    Approve the hiring of additional employees where needed. All departments are spread way too thin.

    Pros

    Amazing craftsmen ship , small corp, very hard to get terminated, company very much values they're employees

    Cons

    You have to convinced people to buy. Their method of "clienteling" is stalking , calling and pushing items in peoples faces. Clients wouldn't think twice about Chanel or LV but they need 2-3 months to think about our products.

    Pros

    Global Company, currently growing, successful products

    Cons

    Poor Management Leadership, poor communication from managers to staff, inappropriate management behavior, high turnover

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to invest in training manager for better leadership and communication. Most importantly, HR needs to address inappropriate behavior of specific managers higher up.

    I worked at Fendi

    Pros

    Brand recognition. Being a part of LVMH.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment. Awful corporate culture. No organization. No leadership. Plenty of finger pointing. Lack of accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Create more structure. This is not a start up.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    Build bonding experiences, this will create less turnover.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    Needs new management!
