    Pros

    Very few pros! Good place to get experience and then move on. Staying long term will only hurt your career. Very few growth opportunities.

    Cons

    This place is like a prison! Family run business with nepotism running rampant. Terrible benefits and long hours. They monitor how you spend your time obsessively. Not flexible as far as work hours go so if you have a life outside work this place probably isn’t for you. I think its pretty obvious that their HR dept just recently realized they were getting negative reviews because all of a sudden there is a flood of positive reviews and comments from HR on the negative ones. Do not be fooled, this company does not value their employees. For anyone thinking of working at Capelli— you deserve better!

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that are qualified instead of being related to you

    Pros

    Working at Capelli New York has been a great experience overall. The structure of the company has allowed me to grow and move up in my position in sales and I see myself staying here for the long run. Managers and all coworkers are very friendly and willing to help when you need, I always feel part of a team. My requests have always been met whether involving a raise after performance reviews to getting more help with assistants. I have been able to learn more of the other departments besides sales such as development and production since our teams work closely together and feel it has given me a lot more experience than I would get at a smaller company. I find if you do your work and communicate, Capelli is there to support you and see you grow and be successful.

    Cons

    Because it is a big company I do feel benefits offered could be a bit better when it comes to insurance costs and 401K but they do have great costs on certain plans like dental and offer transit checks.

    Advice to Management

    Because there are a lot of procedures due to the size of the company, I believe more training for new employees done with heads of departments would help new comers adjust better. Because it's a fairly big company more activities outside of work/office would help get the different departments more familiar with each other and bring teams closer. But overall I enjoy working here and look forward to many more years!

    Pros

    I came across the Glassdoor page for my company while working on a project and I was surprised to see the mixed reviews.
    There are great employees at Capelli and many of us are friends outside of work.
    The majority of the senior management are very professional and have been around for a while with a vast knowledge in the business.
    My supervisor is one of the best managers I have ever come across; very understanding and very professional.

    Cons

    No flexibility in the schedule.
    A couple senior managers are terrible and have a bad reputation.
    I avoid them at all cost
    No matching on the 401k!! ( Otherwise I would have rated the company 5 stars)

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and establish a flexible schedule!!
