    Pros

    Very professional company. Room for growth. Professional environment. Great product. Awesome commission structure.

    Cons

    Benefits not as solid as other company's. Product flow can be slow at times. Merchandisers should listen and be open to Store Manager ideas more often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people they know the business. Change the store layout every now and then to give a fresh look to the "same old product".

    Pros

    Very interesting industry, nice products, reasonable pay, good working environment, good colleagues.

    Cons

    Still very much Mom & Pop HR management. They will hire you for your competences to do a job, but they will only offer a career to those who are part of what can be described as "the extended family",

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come on, enter the 21st century already, and give the dinosaurs some well earned R&R!

    I have been working at Movado Group as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    As an intern they allow you to get a broad scope of the business. You get alot of exposure to SAP and they trust you with alot of responsibilities. Your not treated like someone's assisstant you are treated like their coworker. Higher ups are accessible and easy to talk to and the experience you come out with for the future is priceless. Plus managers and supervisors are really flexible with your schedule and intern compensation is very good.

    Cons

    Projects can get dry at some points. Full time offers are usually below what you would get at another company for a similar role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discount program on watches for interns.

    Pros

    Decent brand recognition for Movado.

    Cons

    Poorly managed company. Many there have been there for years and are kept on out of some sense of loyalty by the owners, but these people run the business quite poorly. They are very bad at inclusion of newcomers. Also very little diversity among workers and management. Unless you are hired on at very senior level there is no career path or it will take decades if it ever does happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to staff other than your inner circle who have been there for years and are ineffective
