    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Calvin Klein full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Company with a lot of growth for young males. Fair for young women but they will work extremely long hours with slim change of promotion. Most women get some experience and move on. For experienced Women in their late 30's plus, it's a male centric society with no chance of promotion. The corporate culture of PVH has always been a boys club, and is a poor choice for a Career minded Woman.

    Cons

    Terrible culture for mid career women.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up on gender equality and put more women at the top. Break up the existing Wallmart Boys Club.

    Pros

    Very creative environment to work in.

    Cons

    No organization or clear direction on anything. Alot of the fellow workers are incompetent. Also you deal with alot of negative attitudes.

    Advice to Management

    Work on having some organization and be open to suggestions from fellow employees.
