    Pros

    Capelli provides an opportunity to be exposed to many aspects of the industry early on. I was told in my interview that if I wanted it, the sky was the limit and that has only proven to be true. They trust their employees and want you to succeed. This is demonstrated through their desire to promote within and give and even create new opportunities for their employees to succeed and grow.

    Cons

    There are strict rules at Capelli that have however proven to be successful. Capelli is a well oiled machine and each of its policies has a reason for being in place. Like many companies in this industry, it is hard work and the hours can be challenging at times but there are often rewards to how hard employees are working.

    Advice to Management

    Suggesting to be more flexible on the hours, especially in the slower summer months. If employees are working late and through lunch, there shouldn't be as much pressure to clock in by 9AM and it should be acceptable to leave earlier than 6PM if your work is done.

    I have been working at Capelli NY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment
    Great Opportunities to grow especially in Sales
    CEO is an outstanding Leader that operates with complete transparency
    Lots of changes have been happening for the past year or so and the company is getting better

    Cons

    Some Sales executives work on very tight deadlines which lead to a couple of stressful days every month.
    Employees have to clock in and clock out and lateness (even if few minutes late) is frowned upon.

    Advice to Management

    Attendance should be a little more relaxed
    Bring back some of the perks that we had

    Pros

    I have been a part of the Capelli team for almost 10 months and see it as a exciting place to be. I enjoy the challenge of being busy and having the opportunity to be a part of continuing to build on what has already been started. The CEO is very present and takes the time to meet with potential employees regardless of the level because it matters who joins the organization. For a new employee that means a lot and starts you off knowing there can be opportunity for you at this organization.

    Cons

    As with any fast paced, busy growing organization we have to make sure we slow down at times to get it right.

    Advice to Management

    Continue promoting from within and building your bench strength and there will be continued success.

    I have been working at Capelli NY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - recognize hard work
    - promote from within
    - great exposure to product design process early on
    - working on treating employees better with little things here and there
    - if you prove yourself you can move up the ladder very quickly - must be willing to work hard

    Cons

    - strict rules (for a reason), lazy people take advantage
    - not your modern day company with happy hours and free things everyday and days off. It is run very traditionally
    - the actual office is very dirty and messy
    - strict hours. must clock in at 9 and clock out at night even if you are on a salary

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat the people who work hard the same was as the people who don't work hard. Recognize where credit should be given. Just because an employee has been there 10 years doesn't mean they are doing much for you. Focus on how companies are changing with the times and try to change to accommodate employees needs. Give more holiday's off (especially time at Christmas)
