    I have been working at Vera Wang as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a fast paced environment, with a lot going on, I learned a lot and got very interesting things to do I enjoyed this internship very much

    Cons

    There are lots of interns, only intern for one specific person so it limits learning a little bit but it provides very productive employees and interns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A compensation for being an intern would be nice, given that I get to do tasks that no one really wants to do, but I understand it is an internship position and the learning experience is irreplaceable.

    I worked at Vera Wang as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working at Vera Wang. I got a lot of great experience and they are very flexible with your time. It is also a small company relative to its operations so you do get a lot of hands-on work because there aren't a million employees running around.

    Cons

    Sometimes they wouldn't exactly have established tasks beyond menial work which could be frustrating. Also I feel as though they should maybe work on certain organizational and administrative aspects.

    I worked at Vera Wang as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    All the consultants were very nice. It was a small staff of maybe 5-7 people. It was an unpaid internship for credit.

    Cons

    Even though it was an internship and i know i wasn't going to get a lot of responsibility, I wish it was more of a learning experience. I felt they just had me do menial work, and random assorted tasks that weren't necessary. Mostly tiding up the store, straightening dresses on the racks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They try to maintain a certain image among all of their corporate staff. They all look the same, and often go through "bootcamp" or have makeovers so they're all more similar.

    I have been working at Vera Wang

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Communication, 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 ManagementAdvice

    Empower your employees to improve your business.

    I worked at Vera Wang full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    late 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 ManagementAdvice

    Figure 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

    Devil Wears Vera Wang

    I worked at Vera Wang

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Caddy, 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 ManagementAdvice

    Focus 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.
