    The work hours are long and the work load never ends. Ir takes a lot of commitment and personal sacrifice to successfully stay with this company.

    I worked at Oscar de la Renta as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Oscar made an effort to say hi to all of the design interns everyday he came through the office which made us feel like we were really apart of the team. My boss was extremely delightful and flexible with my work hours.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement seemed to be somewhat political. Most employee's work late into the night because they are extremely devoted to their work, which can be seen as an extended commitment for those who want to be able to go 'offline' when they leave the work place.

    I worked at Oscar de la Renta full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You are given the opportunity to work by hand, to cut and drape and to make patterns. This will give you ample experience in designing and even in embroidery.

    Cons

    Very long hours, Not friendly environment, a consistently stressful atmosphere where you might miss meals in the process of getting things done. a lack of communication and trust between design teams.

    I have been working at Oscar de la Renta

    Pros

    The clothing is simply exquisite.

    Cons

    You work long hours and are not compensated neither with enough money nor appreciation. Your personal life is of little to no importance. The employee turnover rate is, frankly, shocking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are the reason the company is running. Treat them with compassion and respect. Show them at least the minimal level of appreciation.
