    Pros

    Great place to work. Great Benefits, pay and opportunity for advancement. Was a great time in my career, best move I ever made.

    Cons

    Company acquired by a competitor, many people lost their jobs, local office shut down. Wish it could have lasted longer.

    Advice to Management

    Very approachable, people could approach the CEO no matter what level they were and many were known by name. Fairly big company with a small company feel


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

    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.


  3. Continues to be an invigorating challenging and educational organization with a welcoming corporate environment.

    Pros

    Great corporate environment, focussed on challenging your mind as well as your body. Excellent management group open to share and help mentor personnel. Upper management fosters open door policy.

    Cons

    The down town location is a challenge to get to and being in a high-rise with many other companies is a constant task for parking and vendor access. All the security that comes with being in alive studio facility limits free access to grounds. Lunch options are 15 min walk away.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep personnel in the loop to foster a greater sense of team.

    Pros

    Over 20 years walking through those doors to my other family. Warnaco worked hard to give a great atmosphere to their employees. High Level employee's were not afraid to get their hands dirty and dig in the trenches along side anyone. Great work/life balance and awesome people to work with. Teams within departments worked with teams in other departments for one common goal. HR department consistently worked hard at coming up with new incentives/fun activities and better benifits. Sad that they made the decision to sell.

    Cons

    There of course are always cons, but really not big enough to input here. The cons would be relevant to the person and/or situation.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give. Company no longer exist. I will say, 95% of Management was always available, always knew your name, most knew the value you gave to the company.
