    I worked at Alexander McQueen full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits from parent company Kering and solid discount at all sister brands like Gucci, Saint Laurent, and Stella McCartney which you get on top of markdown prices.

    Cons

    Negative dialogue with excessive turn over. Difficult to achieve targets because they are constantly moving. They hire inexperienced executives who can’t motivate or inspire. Zero accountability from the top.

    Advice to Management

    Be kinder to those who work in the stores. Customers can sense when employees are happy & treated well.
