    I worked at Prada as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture of the workplace is very clean and very friendly, and usually extremely courteous. The benefits seemed to be pretty good.

    Cons

    Sometimes the competitiveness is pretty obvious as a fellow employee. And the merchandise takes getting used to. After opening more than several shoeboxes, an effective chemical is noticeable from the leather care. And the handbags are stiff as hell, ruining cuticles and drying out hands.

    I worked at Prada part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good opportunity to work in a small team and learn a lot about the industry itself, the business side of fashion, and build up basic computer and analysis skills. It was more technical than I thought it would be, which was good. Shuttle to main subway stations after 6 PM was a nice service since the office is so far away from everything.

    Cons

    Slowest computers on the face of the earth. Plus the outdated operating system. How do you expect someone to do work efficiently when it takes a full 10 minute to load the database file and it crashes when it tries to save every 4th attempt?
