    I worked at BCBG part-time

    Pros

    This store was busy with customers and fashion forward, plus employee discount on clothing which was nice! Not a bad place to work

    Cons

    The employee work schedule was very unorganized and the store and a lot of turn around on employees which mabe it hard to get a consistent work schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better managers that stick with the store and are investing in the employees hired by giving bonuses or chance to move up in responsibility.

    Pros

    Good Pay and Benefits

    Cons

    Upper Level Management put their lack of management responsibility/ issues on others to sustain their positons.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Level Management needs to confirm the District Manager information given in regards to reasoning for business not taking place. They may say things and put blame on others to diffuse the blame on themselves.

    Pros

    If you get stuck with a good and caring manager, then you're going to be okay. But there will be lots of office politics that you will have to deal with.
    If you have an okay office manager/director that is willing to put in the effort, then you might have some what of a decent experience here.

    Cons

    Where do I even start?
    I can say that 95% of management stinks around here. Not only do they constantly yell or are disorganized, they often pick on the "weaker" employees, sometimes make them cry or upset.
    The company is very sexist if you are not working in the more creative departments like Design. You will be belittled of your abilities and people will try to make you do things that have nothing to do with what your position is.
    The good and hardworking employees are taken advantage of and have no morale anymore. They are not appreciated at all while bad employees who do not do anything are praised left and right.
    Upper Management such as managers need Anger Management classes as they are always mad all the time.
    Very tense work environment depending on department.
    Massive Layoffs.
    No guarantee for moving up. company is doing poorly to even give people "raises" (if you can even call them that).
    Constant blame game. Cover your tracks because everyone will throw you under the bus, even your own manager/director.
    HR never does anything about complaints.
    You will be severely underpaid here.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the reoccurring offenders (the managers and directors) that constantly are making everyone tense and are exploiting the good workers. Fire the bad workers (they're still here). You need to motivate your workers and tell them whats going on with the state of the company. Everyone is scared and wants to jump ship before this place goes out of business.

    Pros

    You know the trends before they release

    Cons

    No incentive to work for the company. Your employee discount is horrible. No perks. A lot of cat fights.

    Pros

    The clothes and discounts. I love the fashion so it worth working there for a bit. Easy to spend money as you get first dibs on new arrivals so be careful with over spending

    Cons

    Upper management. One bad manager after another calling the shots, and unfortunately it makes everyone on the floor suffer. The DMs are a joke!

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule and promotes autonomy!

    Cons

    Human Resources and payroll are unorganized, also executive managers rather you dismiss the issues at hand than they taking accountability for their mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    It shouldn't take any company 2 months and counting to correct someone's pay. This is people's livelihood. While higher management and executives are getting paid correctly the front line people are being tossed to the side
     Lack of communication and follow through.
