    I worked at Len Druskin full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The employees are good people, the product is well-tailored to the customer, and the business is family owned and operated.

    Cons

    There is virtually no management structure and no protocol in place to deal with issues that arise at specific stores or across the company.

    This often results in the lower management and even hourly employees handling operations that they aren't prepared to, only to be criticized for their performance later.

    Ownership and operation management is currently being transferred from Len Druskin to Michael Druskin, his son. To say that employees feel the awkward nature and power struggle involved with the slow replacement is a drastic understatement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bite the bullet and fully transfer ownership. The company and brand will change, but that's the name of the game.

    Get some real protocols in place to assist your in-store management. No one, hourly employees especially, should constantly feel as though they've been left to deal with a situations outside of their training and designated responsibilities.

    I have been working at Len Druskin full-time

    Pros

    The company gives great discounts to employees and used to offer great benefits. The starting salaries and wages are pretty good compared to other retail companies.

    Cons

    The employees are clicky and owners are overly controlling. There are no Holiday's, overtime, bonuses or reviews. You are expected to work or be available to work 24/7. The company is very political. Information isn't shared across departments and the organization structure isn't clear. Job descriptions aren't properly defined. Salaries and wages are decent when starting, but no growth.

    I have been working at Len Druskin full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun, energetic atmosphere where all share the love for fashion.

    Cons

    Structure is lacking- small business growing pains as they begin the next level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Store managers need to be given tools and training so they can perform the way upper management intends them to. Training overall needs more attention.

    company has been growing so fast. there isnt enough staff to fill the store good sometimes. Training isnt very good. New people often have to sink or swim. Some sales poeple are clique-y and not welcoming to newbies.

    Pros

    Great pay compared to other retail establishments. Employee discount is amazing considering the price and quality of clothing and accessories sold. Quick advancement.
