    Pros

    First of all, the company is woman led (by powerhouse Daniella Vitale) and the employee population is extremely diverse. While there is an incredibly rich heritage, Barneys is entrepreneurial and is pushing to evolve as the retail landscape does. The company values creativity and the people are smart and hard working but NICE. And who doesn't want to work with such thought leaders in fashion and culture! The recent Drop that happened in Beverly Hills shows how talented everyone is.

    Cons

    All one's salary goes to buying clothes :(

    Advice to Management

    Keeping pushing hard to take the company to the next level.
