    Former Management Associate

    Department Manager (Former Employee)
    Beverly Hills, CA

    Pros1. Many, many decent and dedicated employees

    2. Benefits

    3. Work environment

    4. I give Saks 5th Ave. 4 stars because I believe it is a great company even though some of the senior management is lacking in professionalism yet somehow continue to advance thru the organization. Of course, your experiences, good or bad, depend on your particular work location and supervisor.

    Cons1. Performance standards are not always applied fairly. Senior management, with personal agendas, can sabotage a long career and you are powerless. Unfortunately, this can probably be said of every large organization.

    2. Extreme stress to make sales numbers and open new credit accounts. Corporate believes this is easy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake more of an effort to treat ALL associates fairly and equally. You are impacting people's lives.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    "High-class" hostility and back-stabbing

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Beverly Hills, CA

    ProsName on resume, and very flexible scheduling, thats all.

    ConsImage of company is deceiving! Brown-nosing coworkers and managers, no trust amongst anyone, HR enforces hostility and complaints against employees for no reason, draw pay structure = basically commissions only....and had to pay $80 a month in parking fees!

    Here's the bonus: this company is so cheap, they served a bag of 99 cent hersheys kisses for employee appreciation week.....I could write a book about how misleading this company is for future fashion and sales / marketing professionals

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay salary and commission, stop enforing hostile competition, train your managers to know how to use (or at least open) the registers. This was an embarassment of a company to work for.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
