    I worked at D'Orazio & Associates full-time

    Pros

    Some of the jewelry brands are absolutely amazing and the selection is great to work with

    Cons

    Everything that has already been said is true

    Advice to Management

    Stop writing your own glass door reviews. It is obvious they are a fake. Your success comes from your employees, while you founded the company without them you would have nothing

    I have been working at D'Orazio & Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team, people are smart and professional, dealing with international fine jewelry and fashion brands. It's amazing to work closely with the CEO, she's well established, taught me the PR business and has major connections within the industry. I admire her and grateful for the opportunity she has given me.

    Cons

    I have no complaints about the job

    "Public Relations"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Beautiful jewelry and some and I mean SOME great staff members. Other than that NOTHING!!

    Cons

    The CEO. She is a micromanager who is dying to be respected and accoladed in the business. She has been around since 2001 and has not made it yet. Think that ship sailed. She loses clients weekly. Stylists, editors and publicists laugh behind her back because she is too serious and very socially inept. Her clients should reconsider where they are represented because nothing ends well with her and she is not connected well enough to even grow flowers.

    Advice to Management

    You will never be successful with that attitude and people generally do not like you

    Pros

    the pr direct is great

    Cons

    the CEO has strong disregard for CA labor laws & intern needs. The rest of the employees are amazing, but there is incredibly high turn over due to the way the office is mismanaged. zero acknowledgement of accomplishments and all employees have their off duty time completely exploited. there are no health care or benefits, overtime, or bonuses for any extra work- which is constant.

    Advice to Management

    incentivize your employees, stop having gossip sessions in your office.

    Pros

    Successful public relations placements, established media and stylist relationships, nice office (though it is in the Larry Flynt building), work is distributed so no one is overloaded

    Cons

    Micromanagement, non payment of sick days, poor retainment of employees, inability by management to effectively discuss salary issues or compensate employees with bonuses

    Advice to Management

    Give capable lower level employees more responsibility. Create bonus structure to motivate employees. Communicate clearly and directly with employees and clients even if the issues are uncomfortable.

    I worked at D'Orazio & Associates as an intern

    Pros

    Same as previously mentioned pros. Good employees that are good at their jobs. Two weeks paid vacation during Christmas and New Years.

    Cons

    Same as previously mentioned cons, with emphasis on MICROMANAGEMENT Issues. Zero recognition for hard work and accomplishments. Blatant disregard for California State Labor Laws. No room for growth within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees- they are the reason for your success.
