      Pros

      Decent pay with good discount and sample sales for employees only. Excitement of a new creative director.

      Cons

      Poor and under qualified management teams creating a challenging and unproductive work environment. Junior employees were told to manage up to their managers if there was room for improvement. Overwhelming sexist attitude in the regional office and senior management. Zero opportunity for career development.

      Generous PTO for Company in Transition

      Apr 26, 2018 - Coordinator 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      As it is a UK company, a generous amount of PTO offered, two weeks vacation, summer days, winter days, due days, personal days, as well as Summer Fridays (Corporate only). Bonus and Stock option given (but not guaranteed). Sample sale (only in corporate though)

      Cons

      Do not expect to do just the job you were hired for, company has lost/let go of alot of people and roles and tasks have been consolidated not replaced. No clear direction from Finance. It seems there is a huge disconnect between the regions and often Americas is forgotten or left behind by corporate. Corporate Management is focused on titles and positions, rather than who can do the job best...

      Prestigious company to post on resume, with limited opportunities to grow in the organization

      Oct 31, 2011 - Merchandise Manager in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great colleagues within the department, reasonable mid-level management to report to who offer opportunities to take on greater responsibilities as they become available (usually due to other employee vacancies) resulting in the ability to learn and grow professionally. Benefits are above average for industry: Healthcare, retirement, vacation/ time off, employee discount, staff wear, sample sales Encourages personnel to donate office hour time to charity events Prestigious brand with global recognition and broad customer awareness, resulting in strong sales and financials across all areas of the business: wholesale, retail, online

      Cons

      No matter how good a performance review, there are very few and rare raises or bonuses, mostly due to the excuse of the "global economic crisis" Title promotions across all departments are typically 18-24 months overdue, with a nominal (4%) bump in salary. Little opportunity for career pathing or fostering mentorships Overall communication from "the mother ship, London" office is vague and poorly shared with regional teams. Culture of senior management preferring the "simply do what we say" style over the "think on your own & problem solve together" Overall culture of secrecy across departments/ offices There are too many overpaid, underworked senior execs who are cronies w/ the other senior execs, for which either new highly compensated positions get created, or they are allowed to keep their well-paying job for which they contribute nearly nothing, while the majority of hard working, dedicated mid and entry-level personnel are ignored or their positions are "eliminated"

      Great company in general, but not good to work at the store..

      Pros

      great benefits, Holidays, Sample Sale

      Cons

      The biggest store. It used to be a great place to work. I used to have good managers who care about team members and feel be treated fairly. Team members were happy at work before. However, many caring managers are left the company. Hard working employee hasn't be treated fairly if they don't have "connection" with senior management. Promotion opportunities are more likely for manager's friends. ( work performance doesn't matter much to promotion ) Hard-working employee are focus on their target during the day, no time to flatter floor managers. As a result, some colleagues become focus on building relationship with managers instead focusing on their main role. That means, If you are good at talking,flattering,doing some manager's duties that you might have opportunity to be promoted although KPI is not good. Great work performance is not rewarding much that makes people feel frustrated. Some line managers acted differently in front of senior management. Many of them only care what is beneficial to their career. They actually don't care about your issues but they have to pretend they care about it.
