    Design team

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFor a hard worker, endless opportunity to learn

    ConsLong hours, poor pay, treated poorly by upper management

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    If you are passionate about retail bridal, this is the company for you!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe majority of your coworkers are warm and helpful, and the company is relatively small so you will interact with every department and job function all the way up to Vera herself. As the leader in her field, your competition is limited, and overall her quality is by far the best in the biz! Definitely makes every position a little easier.

    ConsCommunication, like in any company, can be extremely difficult. Because it is small, there is also a lot of togetherness...if you are not familiar with working with all women I would seriously consider what that means before jumping in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower your employees to improve your business.

    Very Cut Throat

    Design (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsVery good experience, good pay, beautiful product, company makes lots of money, has a bit of structure, Vera herself is an amazing and talented designer

    Conslate work hours, strict clothing (girls have to wear heels and all black at all times), very horrible attitudes, will be thrown under the bus if someone just doesn't like you, working with Vera is difficult and an exclusive club, appearance is more important than the work that is done, lots of talk about weight management, everyone is on some sort of unhealthy diet, very toxic environment

    Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out a way to have nurturing leaders instead of ones that are only worried about themselves and get upset when someone else receives any kind of good feedback

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

    Devil Wears Vera Wang

    Sales (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsRespected name in fashion world, young environment, small size allows more learning opportunities, lots of discounts, never a dull moment

    ConsCaddy, childish managers who value appearance over performance. False sense of superiority, brain-washing, very rah rah sorority at times. Rarely rewarded for achievements.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus less on looks and politics, more on ways to improve and grow as a team/brand in marketplace. Treat employees with respect and perhaps you will see less turnover. Build loyalty. Not who has the best hair.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Avoid At All Costs, Or It Will Cost You

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsVera Wang Bridal is a better place to work. This review is targeted for Vera Wang Maids on Madison Salon. Basically, there aren't many good reasons to work at Maids on Madison unless you like to be berated and run ragged.

    ConsHours, pay, rapid turnover rate, non-existent leadership from management, no advancement opportunities; the list goes on and on. Colleagues are generally incompetent, classless, vicious and unwilling to advance their knowledge for the greater good of the company

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management needs to be confident and secure enough to allow their far and few between competent employees to run things when demonstrating competency. They also need to be present on the selling floor at all times and give greater support and guidance. They need to stop gossiping about employees to other employees behind their backs. Additionally, they need to stop cheating employees out of their hours on their paychecks and their commission checks. Cheapest company around and you never get to eat lunch. Ever.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
