    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

    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    Poorly maintained office, terrible supervisor, no work-life balance, poor pay, outdated systems and technology and catty, gossiping, shallow coworkers.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

    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!

    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.

    Corporate Planning Department

    Former Employee - Planner  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Planner in New York, NY

    Pros

    The discount is great as well as the human resources department. Very friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Pay is about 20% less than the market, which means you hardly have enough take home pay to utilize the discount. Management is far from "fashionable" coming from a computer company and no experience with Fashion. The job outline is fairly simple, however winning the popularity contest with management is almost impossible. A constant revolving door of talent who walk in because of the Gucci reputation, only to leave dissapointed and dissatisfied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An average day of work is 9am to 9pm with possibly 15 minutes for lunch. The team is segmented by "favorites" who have opportunities to travel and work with upper management, and the others who do reporting and projects on a last minute basis. Very dissatisfied.
