    Pros

    Great company culture, benefits, life/work balance, overall great experience.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Prada USA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Name looks good on resume
    If you can survive the Prada gauntlet, anywhere else is a cakewalk

    Cons

    Zero work/life balance
    No sense of cohesiveness with other departments or main headquarters
    Little to no growth, the company is so cheap they will refuse to promote people so they wont have to increase salary
    Extremely high turnover at Corporate and in the stores
    Depressing office environment
    Benefits are expensive
    Executive decisions are highly questionable because of the disconnect between them and those that are involved in the day to day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some interest in finding out why people are leaving the company and try to fix it.
