Marc Jacobs International Reviews
Pros – great people with a lot of perks
Cons – hard to move up in company
Pros – Good name to put on your resume. Sometimes they throw you Samples as a 'thank you'. Got to watch Marc work before a fashion show.
Cons – No one will learn your name even as you do their expense reports and get their coffee. Lots of sitting around doing nothing. No one cares to actually teach you anything other than how to hide in a closet and help models get dressed
Advice to Senior Management – Show even a small amount to appreciation for interns. And acknowledgement even
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Working on the corporate side, I was able to communicate and form relationships with individuals from every department. The transparency led to me mending bonds between departments and really standing out as an employee of value. The employee discount was a wonderful perk but I hear that even that is limited now.
Cons – The number of temporary/hourly workers outnumbered the permanent staff in a few departments- these individuals (myself included) and direct managers were delegated the work and responsibility of making executive decisions leaving VPs and upper management unaware of what was truly transpiring from day to day.
Advice to Senior Management – Hire effective employees and cut down the temporary roster- individuals will be given more room to shine and more incentive to do so.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – incredibly generous clothing allowance
relaxed, friendly work environment
Cons – lower end of salary brackets
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
“great people to work with and very friendly environment. Great creative and interprenorial energy.”
Pros – you can learn a lot since you are very independent in what you do. And it's very easy to get along with coworkers. Most of them are very nice and helpful
Cons – If you like a very structured/corporate environment, this is not a company for you. Here you need to be interprenorial and very indipendent.
Pros – Sample sales, after party, fashion show, name on resume, mostly very nice people for a fashion company
Cons – Not appreciated, no prospect of full time after 1+ year of temping - not even a mention of a raise, long hours, strange allocation of money (pay your employees! They do the work that makes this company function), some tasks are incredibly demeaning on a basic human level, allocation of responsibility is incredibly unbalanced and junior level employees receive little to nothing. How are they able to grow and if nothing is given to them? Watching is NOT the same as doing.
Advice to Senior Management – Show your appreciate to your temps. You won't know how good you had it until we all leave.

Pros – a majority of the employees are (surprisingly) nice and humble
the employees are understanding if you get sick
interns learn a lot and do almost all the work that their supervisors do
get to go to the show, the after party, sample sales, etc
free dinner if you stay after 6
free breakfast lunch and dinner if you work on the weekend
free cab ride home no matter where you live if you stay after 9
free gifts to thank you for your help
Cons – the only interns who can intern without receiving school credit and get paid are the design interns
the departments are extremely small and the employees are like a family so the chances of interns getting job offers are slim to none
you have to work at least 10 hours a day
after the show there is not that much work for the interns to do
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Good name to have on resume, good pay
Cons – Will hire you on as a temp and tell you that after 90 days of work you will either be let go or made permanent-- well a year later I was still a temp working close to 50 hours a week. This wasn't just me either, I knew of at least 10 other people in the same boat.
Management had absolutely no clue what their employees were doing on a daily basis and would frequently throw each other under the bus to upper management when things weren't going well.
Management also gave up personally interviewing job candidates. I found this out when I was told to train a young lady who didn't speak more than a few words of English.
Speaking of training, there was none. I eventually found myself writing up training documents since I became responsible for training all of our new temps (ridiculously high turnover)
Employee recognition is not something that is written into the corporate culture.
Advice to Senior Management – Create actual training programs. Invest in your employees.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Advice to Senior Management – Upper Management dont know anything about the work
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Great people to work with in a casual and cool environment.
Cons – No pay or stipend for interns.
Advice to Senior Management – A stipend for lunch would be a good compensation for unpaid interns.
