    Experience at Perry Ellis

    New York, NY

    ProsThis is a great place to learn from all aspect of design and production. You will be well compensated for your position. Freelancer's are now on payroll, which means you will be paid on time and do not have to pay back taxes.

    ConsThis is a very cliquey and Politics based company , Insurance is not that great, how they use to pay there freelancer's which was very inconsistent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop with the Politics

    what u would expect @ NYC Office

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThis is a review for the NYC Office. Everyone was moderately nice at Perry Ellis. The work environment is relatively calm, even before the holidays. The Main office building has an amazing view of the city, being on 42nd street. There was often free food leftover from meetings.

    ConsSlightly boring because of the calm work environment. If you don't love fashion, then you won't be excited to work there. The brand is pretty established so there isn't much random for trying new things.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more involved with your employees, I rarely saw my manager.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
