    I have been working at kate spade full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Employees and management are great all around. It usually feels like a home away from home here because everyone is allowed to do their work and creativity is encouraged. Nice perks and benefits and work life balance is touted and encouraged by the upper management.

    Cons

    Sometimes employees are kept in the dark on what's going on with the company until the last minute.

    Advice to Management

    We hope selling the company to Couch Inc., is a good decision...
