    Great place to work before the "breakup".

    Vice President (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsIndustry Leader. Smart and innovative. Believed in true partnerships. Invested in their people.Focused on the end consumer. Great brands. Great systems. Great infrastructure.

    ConsLike all public companies focused on the bottom line, end of quarter can be crazy. Had to do more with less before any other company ever uttered those words.Very process driven, you have to like that to do well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep focusing on the end consumer and you will win.

    Miss this company every day

    Brand Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat people, innovative processes, ability for growth. Had the chance to travel for them for about five years and they always did it right...safe and classy. Management was well trained and were always looking for good growth opportunities for their staff.

    ConsThe opportunities are limited now due to change in overall company. Pay was good but raises were very small typically. Most jobs are in NY so limited availability in this area.

    Excellent Place To Work If You Are A Hard Worker

    Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsYou are expected to do your job with minimum need for supervision. You work as hard as you would if it were your own business.

    ConsIf you are the type that requires a lot of structure to be productive than you should go to a more corporate company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you encourage your workers to have a entreprenurial style then the compensation/title increases should keep pace.

    It's hard to review such a large company since each division has its own pros and cons.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThey have very decent and competitive benefits including unlimited sick days for corporate salaried employees. Competitive salaries and summer hours.

    ConsSince the day I started both of the divisions I was working for were poorly managed and losing money. They do not work on personal and career development at all. Because of that the managers are never reviewed by subordinates and are often unprofessional. HR was never pleasant to deal with, but I'm sure they are the same at every large corporation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRequire corporate associates to anonymously and confidentially review their managers. Teach your corporate managers how to properly manage!
