I worked at Elie Tahari (Less than a year)
Within the design sector, absolutely stunning offices and a huge team with some seriously talented people. Decent benefits.
Unfortunately, employees are paid quite poorly and really overworked. The company seems like it's showing cracks; employees who leave for better opportunities (which happens a lot) aren't replaced with new ones, leaving teams with increasingly huge workloads. Small perks like office coffee machine or speedy printer maintenance are disappearing for budget slashing.
Advice to Management
Invest in your employees; give them a reason to stay at your company, and give them time to sleep.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Elie Tahari (New York, NY).
Pretty quick, but that's standard for an internship in production/design. Met with a coworker for most of the interview, very briefly the director of my division. I was asked to show my portfolio, how soon I'd be graduating, and how often I could come in.
