    I worked at Marc Ecko Enterprises full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I saw many employees get promoted to supervisors and managers, as well as assistant managers get promoted to Associate or Store Managers.

    Cons

    Many Ecko Unlimited stores closing down this year, but they are looking to rebrand- so there could be more opportunities down the road. Although most of their sub-divisions have had significantly less success than their original brand

    Great benefits, very talented employees, freedom and exciting environment.

    Cons

    Owner sold company and let go of over half the staff so very unstable. Ecko is now the Collective. No promotions or annual bonus for a few years.

    Create a stable and structurally successful management team and offer incentive to deserving employees.

    Marc is a really bright guy, unfortunately the opposite is true for some of the people he chose to manage his endeavors.

    I worked at Marc Ecko Enterprises full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The everyday swagger of knowing you work for the guy who made a 7X denim suit for Big Pun.

    Being able to enjoy an extremely relaxed, and beautiful office environment.

    Ecko is a really cool guy, I'm pretty sure he could get along with anyone.

    Some darn good paychecks, plus a lot of freebies and giveaways.

    You didn't have to wear shoes.

    Cons

    Plebeian business partners with terrible ideas, who literally siphoned off money like a vacuum.

    Interacting with shady venture capitalists who may have been facing criminal charges for other endeavors. These sleazeballs introduced Marc to some of those plebeian business partners I mentioned.

    Extremely poor choices in management staff.

    The embarrassment of explaining to outsiders you work for the guy behind the Rhino logo they see on clothes at K-Mart

    You didn't have to wear shoes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play nice with shady VCs and don't encourage terrible style or low quality work.

    I worked at Marc Ecko Enterprises full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None. Perhaps the discount but keep in mind that the cloths fall apart in the wash.

    Cons

    The owner is a bully. He treats his employees like trash. He ofter holds 6+ hour meetings where he rips into each and everyone so much so that some are actually in tears. Caution if you are offend easy as he will curse at you and publicly rip you apart. There is also quite a bit of pot smoking on the roof top deck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pack it in....the company is a financial MESS
