    Pros

    Great product great discount good people to work with. Company has many good qualities at another location that follow the rules and abide bye what they are supposed to do and the company expectations. In my current location we weren't allowed to have weekends off and our store is open every single day so we were wired to work most holidays if not all.

    Cons

    Speaking to HR would normally be considered confidential, but with this company that's not the case.

    Pros

    One is able to be independent. Having connections within only helps guarantee your success. Those who don't speak up, will typically end up leaving on a bad note. If you want to get a promotion, you cannot be afraid to reach out and speak with upper level management. Typically store level management is too afraid to promote from within.

    Cons

    Very time demanding. Say goodbye to spending the week of christmas with family, especially if they are out of state.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't micromanage positions, while ignoring future prospects from within. A company can only grow from the inside. Thats where the knowledge and experience really is when pertaining to organizational culture.

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

    Pros

    Not much. Because there is high turnover, there is opportunity to move up, but you have to be pretty dedicated and thick-skinned to stick it out here.

    Cons

    Poorly maintained office, terrible supervisor, no work-life balance, poor pay, outdated systems and technology and catty, gossiping, shallow coworkers. Just awful. The hours are grueling, there is no personal space, the interns and merchandise assistants are treated like slaves. The teams are run inefficiently.

    Pros

    The company is starting to give incentives to the stores who sell the most.

    Cons

    At first I was excited about uniforms, then I relized this is a Europian company. Everything I wear feels like a smedium. I deal with store operations, stock anything physical and they give me street shoes that hurt my feet and that are really uncomfotable. Im a guy, I dont mind looking good for the brand, but can I please have some comfortable shoes to work in.

    Pros

    Discounts, pay, benefits, networking, styling

    Cons

    Employees get bullied by upper management and treated like they are worthless.
    Store manager doesn't deserve the praise she gets from Senior levels.
    I could go on and on...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be supportive of your employees decisions since they are the ones really working hard while you sit at your desk all day on the phone laughing.
    Stop bullying your staff! You aren't better than them!

    I worked at Gucci America full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good discount and benefits. General company values, including social and environmental concerns are a major positive. Corporate training is decent but there is no follow up.

    Cons

    You have no life other than work. Be prepared to work six days a week; I worked three weeks straight at one point. My manager intimidated every employee; the one person who called into HR was fired (before that she was written up for BS reasons and every work day was hell). We were required to take lunch an hour and a half after arriving for our shift on certain days. Only given one break per shift, if that. Depending on "coverage" we would have wait to use the restroom. Due to my managers crazy personality, sometimes I would hold going pee for an hour and a half so I didn't have to see her.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring narcissistic, bipolar people to management. Although your corporate training is good. You need to have more checks and balances. If someone calls into the HR department, don't call the manager if the complaint is about them! Do an investigation! Be sure that employees are allow adequate break periods otherwise you will get a HIPPA complaint.
