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

    Pros

    Get a lot of industry experience only reason why I gave 2 stars because what I learned here got me a better job.

    Cons

    No work/life balance
    No overtime
    Cheap raises

    Pros

    They sometimes let you have leftover food from big meetings.

    Cons

    Oh boy, where do I start..... there are too many to list. This place is the worst work experience you can possibly have. Please do yourself a favor and stay away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being abusive jerks and maybe people would work here for more than a few months.

    Pros

    there are none. zero . leaving would be the only pro
    please believe all the reviews and save yourself from this place

    Cons

    this is one of the most disgusting companies or places any one has ever encountered . they hire people right out of college so they can manipulate them and treat them like crap. this place is full of fashion rejects. if you stay here you become just as abusive mean and miserable. the pay is probably the lowest in the industry. the products are all counterfeit and shouldn't even be considered fashion. you are not allowed to breathe.
    you are talked down to and abused. they want you to work long hours and pay no over time. all the benefits are terrible . the place is dirty and disgusting . all the positive reviews here are lies and written by upper management

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Capelli NY full-time

    Pros

    - I genuinely enjoy working at Capelli. Hard work is valued they promote from within. Hours are long but flexible with opportunity of acquiring overtime. I truly feel that I'm part of a big family and have been extremely happy overall. I've been blessed to be working along side great individuals who make the workload not feel overwhelming.

    Cons

    - No 401K match
    - Insurance cost is too high
    - National Holidays off only
    - Workload can be overwhelming at times but it is overall manageable

    Advice to Management

    You will reap what you sow. Continue to invest in your employees and the company will flourish. Take the time to listen and value the opinion of others.

    Pros

    There are no pros. Prison, Sweatshop and Abusive environment

    Cons

    Where do I start? I'll start with 0 stars. Wish that was an option
    OMG, it's so bad. Like really bad! I've worked at other company's and this is by far the worst place!!
    -You clock in and out (morning, lunch and evening) even though you are FT. How ridiculous.
    -No HR...or you wouldn't go to them with any of your concerns. Its like talking to a brick wall.
    -The most micro managing corporate environment I've ever been in.
    -Abusive Upper Management (directors and above) who are unprofessional, belittling and extremely rude.
    -No respect for the ones actually doing the work.
    -Everything needs to be done right now but are given multiple things to do at the same time.
    -Mistakes happen, stop micromanaging and allow employees to do great work.
    -All around very negative environment, everyone is stressed and miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management. They are TERRIBLE people.
