    Former Employee - Senior Fashion Designer in New York, NY

    I worked at Maggy London full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    work-life balance was better than a lot of other places

    Cons

    I found it to be very cliquey and full of inter office gossip which made it a very uncomfortable environment to walk into, not professional at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to make it a more professional environment so new employees don't feel so intimidated and aren't scared to contribute what they have to offer. After all you hired that employee because you saw something in them. Give them a fair trial and make sure they know what your expectations are up front, not after the fact.

    I worked at Maggy London

    Pros

    assistants are nice people to work with.

    Cons

    - Work around the clock, because management will not hire teams to grow the business.
    - no strategy in place, everyone works in silos
    - benefits and vacation are horrendous.
    - office culture = gossip + drama. constantly. within all divisions of Maggy London.
    - upper management is extremely cheap, hinders execution

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to mentor employees, run a business, and create a strategy. Hire talent. Get a new CEO and COO. Family run doesn't work anymore.

    Pros

    Lunchtime - Lots of places in the area to escape to when you need a moment to recover.

    Cons

    CEO truly has no understanding of how to value his employees and manufacturing partners. It's all about the almighty dollar. His normal practice is to suck the life out of everyone and then discard when no longer useful. Rinse and repeat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give psychotherapy a shot.

    Pros

    I was able to network and meet people who helped me find the job of my dreams.

    Cons

    President of Muse is awful. The ethics were out of line with my own. Be careful if you take a job there, your spirit will be broken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe they are beyond help.

    I worked at Maggy London full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros for this company. The culture is horrendous and employees are not compensated as promised

    Cons

    The corporate culture is a combination of the devil wears prada and mean girls- this includes men and management. Orders to discounters get shipped before department stores at cheap prices, leaving sales associates to lie to majors. There is A LOT of drama no matter how much business you bring to the table.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up
