    Pros

    Wonderful product and generous discounts, including excellent sample sales. Good reputation for product within the retail and media worlds. Clean and modern branding.

    Cons

    Scary management/owners (see 'Advice to Management").
    Management was hard to please in any situation.
    Every day was different-you never knew what you would get from management (good mood or bad? yikes).
    No clear direction with marketing and promotional goals--just negative feedback on what wasn't liked.
    Lots of negativity flowing from top down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Owner of company is too difficult to describe briefly. Think The Devil Wears Prada's, Miranda, but with more emotional communication difficulties with lots of strange fears and phobias adding to 'quirkiness' of personality and leadership style.
    Management was bad at communicating direction of their promotional wants, but was always eager to criticize when something was not up to par. Overall, this company has potential to be GREAT to work for if fresh, new management came in and prioritized the direction for the company inside and out. They need to stick with a plan and go for it with full gusto instead of changing minds and goals on a whim (this includes design planning and marketing in addition to staff they hire/fire randomly).

    Serious problems with the owner/upper management

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Garden Grove, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Garden Grove, CA

    Pros

    - Co-workers/colleagues are very nice and helpful.
    - Overall, the brand is pretty well known & has a good reputation in the apparel industry, so it's a great place to have on your resume.
    - They treat employees to great deals and discounts on their clothing. They even hold exclusive, employee sales.
    - Christmas bonuses & party, and Fourth of July parties. They allow the occasional birthday celebrations in the office as well.

    Cons

    - The owner works from out-of-state, so it is difficult to communicate, properly.
    - Have cut back on regular employees. Employees left over resume the responsibilities of the laid off individuals, on top of their regular work load, sometimes with Saturday's on top of it.
    - The overall design aesthetic is all across the board due to conflicting ideas regarding marketing, design, etc. from various individual perspectives in upper management.
    - Upper management does not take too kindly to suggestions outside of those given by freelance consultants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Management needs to operate in an organized and rational manner. The current owner tends to be very unorganized and has several contradictory ideas. She will love something on Monday, and hate it by Wednesday.
    - Need a management team that does not hire outsourced consultants, but rather uses the employees already available to achieve their goals.
    - Need to listen to their current professional staff, that is educated and well experienced in the apparel industry, and hearing their input & constructive feedback. They are there to help!
    - Most of all, they need to respect their employees.

    Amazing coworkers but unstable working environment

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Coworkers outside of management are extremely supportive of each other and working environment is friendly oat of the time, a lot of learning opportunities, clothing is produced in the united states

    Cons

    Low chance of growth with company, lower level employees are poorly paid and highly taken advantage of at times, lack of respect for employees, high stress and high pressure, lack of reward for hard work although no problem criticizing for mistakes, direction of line from owner of the company is very misguided , many are laid off and on top of that instead of employing others they give the tasks to other employees on top f their normal responsibilities without incentives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust in the employees you hire to push the brand to succeed, creative direction should be controlled by creative director and designers rather than owner of company who is out of state
