    I worked at Karen Kane

    Pros

    This was a leading company and a leading brand at one time. They provided decent compensation and regular cost of living raises. (continued below...)

    Cons

    All this changed in the 2000's as the brand suffered at retail due to competition. It never changed back to what it was and many long time employees were let go after a number of layoffs due to lack of sales. The company is somewhat of a "cult" and if you don't fit in by being a yes person you won't make it. Small, private apparel companies like this are dinosaurs so in a way it's surprising they have remained in business at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They only listen to themselves so leaving advice here is somewhat pointless, but I would say they need to have more appreciation for their internal salespeople.

    I worked at Karen Kane full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Extremely caring company. No matter what position you are in, the owners and upper management are open to hearing ideas and they also regularly respond to emails, meet directly with the employees...they really make you feel like a valued part of the company. Great teamwork between departments, creative environment, opportunity to take on projects to further career, good pay and benefits, organized processes.

    Cons

    really no downsides...they really care about their employees and try and do everything they can to make them happy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer maternity leave benefits, but understand it is difficult for a private company of this size
