    Definitely Worth an Internship or Two

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsPrestigious company and labels such as Calvin Klein. Easy commute from anywhere, right between Times Sq and Penn Station on Fashion Ave. Learn a lot about the fashion industry and get to intern in a lot of different departments. Work with important buyers from Sak's Fifth Ave, Macy's, etc.

    ConsCompany culture is very Devil Wears Prada. Compensation often very low because of competitive fashion industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees like people and increase communication. Try to weed out the gossip and negativity.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not all it's cracked up to be

    Senior Account Executive (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsDecent benefits that are in line with other similar companies, and a generous holiday schedule that includes days like Christmas Eve and the day after Thanksgiving.

    ConsLack of personal growth due to being micromanaged, makes it difficult to focus on actually doing your job. There is no sense of team unity, rather more of a competitive atmosphere where you're constantly watching your back. Management is threatened by strong employees so will constantly look for ways to keep you down and make you feel inferior.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Garmento run

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    CAD artist / print and pattern development

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Not what they make it out to be

    Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsDecent benefits, 401K, Healthcare, decent discount on items.

    ConsLack of training. Management is impossible to contact. HR can't seem to get benefits straight. They threaten your job when you don't make your numbers. Don't ask questions or complain to HR or they will fire you. Serious lack of leadership. You can make your numbers for a month straight and not hear a peep, but miss a day and expect to answer questions. I have a feeling I was let go because they wanted to make an example of me to frighten other associates.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour expectations are too high with the tools and products you provide stores with. Fear is a terrible motivator, so telling managers that they will be fired if they don't produce isn't going to make them want to work harder. If you want better results talk to your people like they are actual people. Some of your tactics are borderline illegal, and you know it. You sell a good product, so empower your people, treat them with respect and you really could have something great.

    Employed as result of takover

    Operations (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsUpper management is cutthroat, but the rest of the staff is nice to work with. If you get employed directly by them, it's a good place to work. If you get employed as a result of a merger, start looking for a new job.

    ConsCompany tends to expand by acquisition and then get rid of most inherited employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat new, inherited people with more respect.

    Pleasant and casual. No structure for growth in salary or title.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFriendly and supportive co-workers. Job stability.

    ConsNo annual review. Company doesn't like to have job titles therefore they pay less than the average.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut your employees on an action plan for growth. Have annual reviews and keep it at the same time each year.

    Stable, but not exciting in terms of product

    Designer (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsStable, good hours for the fashion industry.

    ConsNot very clear management structure. Run very "family business" style, even though the company has grown quite large

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore standard performance review practices, allow employees to explore and work towards advancement.
