    Pros

    Good to put on your resume

    Cons

    Working here really will drain your soul. Everyone's unhappy and it's because of one person and her craziness. Turnover is frequent and after your first day you'll see why. It's disorganized, chaotic, you'll always be put down. Nobody deserves to be in an environment of this nature.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees, recognize turnover is high for a reason...... Not because people "can't handle it" but because people recognize their worth.. And that they're a human not animal. A lot of great employees will be lost if things don't change.

    Pros

    Good name to put on your resume even though the name is fading.

    Cons

    Worst people I have encountered in fashion. Since I have interned and freelance at a range of companies, I must say this was my absolute worst experience. Cynthia herself is actually horrible, along with the team.

    Pros

    Great people
    Fun work- variety of tasks; you won't do the same thing everyday!
    Located in the best spot- can't ask for a better place to work than the West Vil
    Cynthia is a brilliant designer and strong business woman- great to observe and learn from

    Cons

    Unpaid
    Sometimes the office is a little disorganized.. if this stresses you out, then CR isn't the best place for you
    Can be intimidating at first..

    Advice to Management

    More open, friendly environment between employees
    Less hierarchy

    I worked at Cynthia Rowley full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my experience at this company. I found it very different from a lot of the other fashion houses, as it allows you to be involved in all aspects of the business. You will get to see the process on how everything is done during the making of each collection/season. If there's a certain position you have interest in, management is open to letting you explore other career paths within the company. The employees are great! I've made lifelong friendships here. It's also an awesome opportunity to work very closely with Cynthia. The office location on Bleecker is great but the new office will be even better. This was truly a life changing learning experience for me. I was challenged to do things I never thought I could do. It made me 10x better at what I do!

    Cons

    It's a very fast paced and challenging environment (as is every fashion house) so be prepared to hit the ground running and you'll do just fine.

    I have been working at Cynthia Rowley part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's fun to wear the designer's clothes while working. You make commission on what you sell. Pretty flexible hours.

    Cons

    The stores are very slow volume so the chance of making a lot of money from commission is slim. You really need to have a strong clientele. No lunch breaks since most of the time you're there alone and you can't leave the store for 8+ hours. You don't really get trained on the pos system or company procedures, you kind of learn as you go. A good resume builder but not a long term job.
