    Former Employee - Assistant Planner in Reno, NV

    I worked at Skagen Designs full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great perks liks quarterly bonus if numbers are met for all employees not just the sales team. Also, free watches.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room to grow with the planning and purchasing departments. The managers have been there a long time and are not going anywhere. You also have to work a retail sale for at least one day every year which some people did not enjoy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would ask senior management to be more mindful of lesser employees and thier needs for growth.

    Awesome place if you are in the fashion design field - not so good for everyone else

    Former Employee - ERP Analyst in Reno, NV
    Former Employee - ERP Analyst in Reno, NV

    I worked at Skagen Designs

    Pros

    If you love fashion and design, this place is for you. Henrik Jorst is a pretty cool guy and his design team produces some unique stuff right in Reno, NV of all places. You get to be first in line at the quarterly warehouse sale!

    Cons

    If you are a business professional, this place will seem like a circus or a zoo to you sometimes. This is also a small privately held business and you will be interacting with the owners sometimes - I don’t find that situation desirable, because you are sometimes at the mercy of whimsy with no due process. Compensation package is wanting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Separate the design and business offices. Give the business staff room to execute industry best practices.
