    I worked at BCBG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The building is beautiful, that's about it.

    Cons

    Everything. The people are horrible to work with, you stay very late (and your salary), and the pay is very little compared to other companies offering the same job. You will lose hair doing this job. Management doesn't really manage. Be prepared to do all the work.

    Advice to Management

    Start actually working and stop having the associates do all the work. Try earning your money, Max is gone so stop acting like you have the right to act like him.
