    Pros

    A lot of pros, great environment, the office is amazing and some great colleagues. Very interesting experience I loved it

    Cons

    No cons really but some people will look down on you as an intern. But otherwise pretty positive experience overall. The hours were flexible

    Advice to Management

    Teach more to intern don't let them do only the bad work. But otherwise depending on the team it's a good experience

    Pros

    The staff is great, everyone is friendly even when under lots of stress. Everyone tries to help one another if possible.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play games with your employees, be honest about things, everyone is an adult.

    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.

    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 Management

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