    Pros

    Working at Intermix as a sales assistant allows one to work with customers on a personal level as the store is small and creates a personalized shopping experience for the customer. The daily responsibilities consist of sorting and organizing the merchandise, cleaning fitting rooms and making sure the customers needs are met.

    Cons

    The level of effort taken to maintain the stores clean organized appearance especially when the store is filled with customers is often overlooked by fellow colleagues and often taken advantage of.

    Pros

    Great place for middle managers to come and fail upwards. Good place to start a junior career to gain experience and leave as soon as a better gig come up.

    Cons

    1. NO investment in people at all. Way to get promoted is to outlast eveyone else who's left and threaten to leave. Do not value people below director level who actually do the work 2. Do not reward people who do good work, not merit based. Reward senior employees no matter what the performance is (in forms of large raises, bonuses, promotions even severances if they are so bad and has to be cut) 3. Recent senior hires in every department embodies big company mentality and does not do any work, push everything down to juniors 4. ZERO career track possibility for junior people. Great career track for failed middle management from another company to come and fail upward some more. 4. Company continues to give large severances to let go senior management and hire more senior people who don't do anything to "fix" issues. compiled an amazing collection of senior leaders who are ALL incompetent 5. Answer to problems of business is to hire someone above them or right below them

    Advice to Management

    Fundamental structure of the company such as HR and Finance are broken. Company cannot move forward if turnover is very high and the CFO does not know finance or how retail works.

    Pros

    Great opportunity be around every changing beautiful stylish clothes, build your clientele book, and make a lot of money on commission (if motivated!).

    Cons

    Fellow workers can be catty and snobbish at first but overall most became great team players and friends in the long run. Owners seem disconnected from store reality and were intimidating (but rarely visited store). Management was awesome and very inspiring and encouraging.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Some of the junior people are very talented and are great people. The clothing discount is also a plus, though the clothing is incredibly expensive even with the discount.

    Cons

    Some of the senior people (director and senior director level) have no idea what they are doing. They rely on the work done by their junior team members, who aren't given a voice, visibility, or fair pay. Despite junior people working longer hours than their counterparts at many retail companies, they are given no support and no development. There have been many layoffs as the brand tries to compensate for its poor performance. There is lack of a clear direction, poor performance, and poor morale.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps you should try to revert back to what made the brand appealing enough for Gap to acquire it in the first place. I would also ask you to answer the question of why anyone would want to come work at Intermix in the first place. It's becoming too rigid to be entrepreneurial, isn't successful enough to be reputable or pay well, and isn't organized enough to foster the development of its people. That is why you are losing talent and that is why so many people are looking to leave. Those who are staying are only doing so out of necessity, because they realize they are unqualified.

    Pros

    Would definitely have to be the discount. Besides that though, the company culture is pretty weak. A very superficial, clique-y place. No benefits. You're basically an intern except you're getting paid.... barely.

    Cons

    Never felt like there was room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that you are Intermix. You are not Chanel or Vogue or whoever you think you are. Make your employees happy. Especially the "little people." There needs to be more incentives to stay/want to work for a company like Intermix. You guys just made a lot of money, why not spend some of it investing in your employees futures?

    Pros

    Ability to stay on top of luxury trends. Built long term friendships with other team members.

    Cons

    No growth. Promotions are given based primarily on physical appearance. This creates key management personnel who don 't really know what they are doing - and leads to high turnover when they fail themselves and their team. Little to no support from upper management. No training on how to manage people. Any training is based on auditing and operations. Many in upper management have a bad approach and lack respect and tact when speaking to their direct reports. Issues become very black and white as creative thinkers and problem solvers continue to leave the company in droves. The influence from the parent company Gap Inc. has created a rigid and corporate environment in what used to be a cutting edge, fun and exciting place to be.

    Advice to Management

    When key employees are leaving at an alarming rate it's time for a "come to Jesus" moment. Revisit the original culture the company was built on.

    Pros

    Great clothes and brands, opportunity to gain access into the luxury space, and somewhat flexible work hours

    Cons

    Hard to advance your career. Promotions do not come easy or fast. Rather higher above you that advance you.
