    THIS PLACE IS A HELLHOLE

    Anonymous (Former Employee)

    ProsYou gain experience. Free lunches when people visit office. There are a few pleasant people to work with.

    ConsExtremely high turnover rate. One employee comes in, another two to three leave. Four CFO's in two years, approximately 6 Customer Service/Order Entry associates in two years, at least five Production Managers in two years - the list goes on and on. CEO/Owner/Name On The Label is prone to emasculating the men who work for her and can be condescending to the women, yet hides it really well when speaking in public. Department of Labor investigated the company, company hasn't been audited in years and there is a LOT of cooking of the books happening… Everything is outsourced and handled terribly - HR, IT, warehouse, etc. JUST STEER CLEAR.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake management classes before giving yourself or anyone else the title of manager. Listen to your employees and customers because without them, you don't have a business.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Expected so much more, but received very little...

    (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsA very diverse environment where for the most art employees were able to get along with each other. Management was not very strict on time and attendance. Company is very generous when it comes to offering jobs to people, whether it be and outsider or a friend.

    ConsWhere do I begin...the "office" was highly disorganized. Boxes, clothes and miscellaneous supplies cramping up the work space.
    Lack of communication within all departments. Little to no training. Lack of team work but if someone screws up on their own projects, they will not hesitate to to burden others with trying to fix it. Tense and stressful work environment, it seems like everyone is afraid to voice their opinion when things go awry. Ridiculously outdated computer programs/systems.
    Plenty of older employees who will bother you with troubleshooting the computers and copy machines. Turn rate was very high; for every one person that was hired, 2 to 3 disgruntled employees parted ways, leaving a messy work load with no communication left behind.
    Managers acted as if it is a privilege to work for the company. Lots of shouting matches and nasty attitudes between Upper Management and employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease remember that in order to run a business successfully you must development a team of people who are knowledgeable, positive and shares the same vision.Yelling and screaming creates a horrible work environment for all employees and low morale equals lackluster productivity.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Unhappy Environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGets your foot in the door of a fashion company and there is room for upward career movement because the company is so small. There are also some really nice people, if you have the time to get to know them. The CEO is a very smart woman with a lot of experience and you can learn from her.

    ConsAll employees seem unhappy and dissatisfied with job. Communication between people in different parts of the company is always a problem. Additionally, there is little to no technology in use (besides basic computer programs) so there are always problems with orders, organization and inventory. People become very stressed out because of this.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees' ideas, they have some good ones. Also, please invest in technology that keeps track of inventory. Offer more employee bonding events.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
