    Brilliant time!

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Pros

    Compensation, independence, hands off leadership, T&E, encouraged to get 'things' done 24/7, travel, ability to make decisions...no matter the size/scope, ambitious coworkers and did I say T&E!!!

    Cons

    Zero personal growth...either you know what you're doing or you you'll never learn. Many coworkers seem bitter, beat-up and unhappy...which reflected in their desire to get 'things' done. Management was/is a bit aloof.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage, interact and encourage the entire staff.

    Pros

    Product, creative environment, central NY location

    Cons

    History of management dysfunction; they "know everything" so your input goes nowhere (or you get zero recognition)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pointless to attempt.

    Despite an interesting product - NOT a healthy place to work

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Summer hours are great if you can take them
    Interesting product and opportunity for growth

    Cons

    Diva attitudes amongst many of the Senior team - who constantly put each other down in public
    Micro management by CEO with consistently changing priorities making it impossible to move the business forward

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a strategy which everyone is unified on and then execute on it - the constant in fighting and undermining each other only hurts the company as a whole and nothing is ever fully implemented - and then yet another change comes along - stop the viscous cycle.

    Pros

    Generally great personalities and talent across all departments. Beautiful office space.

    There is a communication gap between management and employees and a culture of blame within certain departments which make collaboration and productivity suffer at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage ideas and feedback from the team on decisions that will impact them, and actually put them into consideration and action.

    It is in the fashion business

    Cons

    Lack of proper mgmt

    Low pay
    Lack of morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a decent leader and stop relying on the gossip of certain sales people and one VP who are the favorites...they are ruining your business. You should be ashamed of your turnover rate and your investors should look at this

    Pros

    Half-day Fridays during the summer. Conveniently located near many popular subway lines.

    Cons

    On the surface, things look great at SS, however just below the surface there is a palpable sense of fear in the ranks.

    Welcome to the boys club, circa 1970, the ceiling is glass and the attitude of management is oppresively sexist and ageist. Female executives come and go through a revolving door. Those who remain are either sadists or masochists - or very beautiful and know how to work Frank.

    As for management, there is complete disregard for employees' dignity, rampant mismanagement and forced overtime due to shrinking departments. No career path, crap benefits and very few raises - title-only promotions are plentiful, especially when SS can save money by promoting a junior up, preferably someone young, inexperienced and submissive who will do as told. Mediocre work is valued above talent.
