    Pros

    Big company with lots of brands that hopefully you will be able to transition and grow with if you wanted to move.

    Cons

    High design turnover and green managers that do not foster growth or education. New processes every season!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more touch bases and ensure that all team members including upper and middle management are consistent with processes and design direction.

    Pros

    You get great benefits and vacation time, and PVH does a lot with corporate responsibility and there are opportunities for volunteer work.

    Cons

    As an entry level employee, compensation and yearly increases are below average. Instead of investing in and growing their employees, they continually change job responsibilities in a way that is detrimental to career growth. Extremely high turnover and unhappy employees found on ever floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the hard-working, talented, and effective employees you have. Get rid of the small-mindedness where everyone has to wear every hat in the book and take on more and more work, and just hire people to do their jobs. It is a lot more beneficial to have three people working as an effective team to get work done, instead of having one person doing three people's jobs, barely above water.

    Lack of communication and respect

    I have been working at PVH Corp. full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Health benefits and 401k plan, employee discount

    Cons

    Lack of communication between departments - the right hand never seemed to know what the left was doing. The task load was heavy enough to warrant extra manpower, but we were not allowed to spend payroll hours. The district management was disrespectful and accusatory and when asked for assistance they gave the response of "figure it out yourself". Pressure to work overtime with no compensation. No bonus earned in over two years due to flawed system that did not reward for individual store accomplishments. The handling of upper management decisions to offload a brand was handled poorly and those field management who were let go were treated in a manner that was unbecoming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together. Support your staff and give pay raises that are comparable to other like-minded companies.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, pension, & vacation days. A lot of people have worked here for decades. If you find yourself in a good group of people you will enjoy it.

    Cons

    Very hard to move up the ranks. Not sure if this is partly due to the lifers that cause few openings at the top. Also, harder for women to get top spots. This is a menswear company. There is a boys club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't always look to hire from the outside. Look within.
