  1.  

    My experience at Warnaco was very satisfying and I would have stayed forever if the company wasn't sold.

    I worked at Warnaco Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It was a comfortable environment, the director of my department trusted me to do my job and but was always available if needed.

    Cons

    There were a lot of issues with the processing system we used. We were constantly on the phone trying to get the error corrected.

    I worked at Warnaco Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    At Montreal office: really friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Workload fit into your day. No forced overtime. Great people. Too bad finance was transferred to corporate office and ultimately company bought by PVH. Wish I was still there.

    Cons

    My manager the last few years I was there was the biggest con. But at least I was not micro-managed so I didn't have to deal with him much. Yearly reviews were useless and counter-productive. Communication between managers could have been better.

    I worked at Warnaco Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    In general, it was a pretty laid-back atmosphere. Most people were friendly and most executives were approachable. Employees, for the most part, were treated like people. Occasional "thank yous" like ice cream parties would pop up.

    Cons

    There seemed to be a disconnect between different divisions and departments. This was especially evident in the IT world. Collaboration overall could be much stronger. Fairly high turnover, especially in the design areas, would put a strain on resources and morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to do more to keep talent, especially in the design areas as well as IT. This could be done by offering more competitive salaries and higher than insulting 2-4% annual raises.

    Pros

    Traditional corporate environment with good salaries, benefits & profit sharing.

    Cons

    Once you hit the glass ceiling - that's it. I was hard pressed to find challenges in my role after a few years & there was a lot of re-structuring in design department on an on-going bases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there are no way to promote a designer, they should be allowed to switch categories to allow for new skill development & freshness in the product line (ie...knits designer & bottoms designer switch positions).

    Pros

    Local management strives to build into the local associates. They voice the local concerns to the corporate partners even when it seems to fall on deaf ears. Local associates are provided many small things such as luncheons and various award programs.

    Cons

    Local headcounts are so tight that it leaves no room growing outside of the current position. Although growth is encouraged verbally, time constraints leave little time for the activities that will lead to the growth.
