    Pros

    It's been good experience.

    The decision makers of the company doesn't want to hear your ideas or suggestions to help make business better, they just want you to smile and nod to whatever they say.

    Do what works in your market, LISTEN to your people telling you wants going on, and then try and make it better.

    Pros

    Corporate: Staff is great. Free tea and coffee. Leave at 3 pm on Fridays. Great entry level - mid level place to work.

    Cons

    Corporate: Management is poor. One person runs each department, which causes everyone to quit from so much stress. Poor pay. The company tells their employees each year that they're out of the red zone but that's only because they cut down the staff more and more every year.

    Advice to Management

    Change the style of your clothes. It's not appealing to both younger and older generations.

    I worked at ESCADA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working on the corporate IT team, I had a cool manager, who showed me the ropes, and was willing to teach me & let me do various projects. I got to travel to a few stores to setup the back office equipment, registers, firewall tunnels, and audio equipment.

    Cons

    A lot of the store had old POS systems, and were always breaking down, or losing connection. Had to always get that back up and running instead of just replacing the equipment with new stuff, but that was due to monetary issues, and the bankruptcy filing at the time prior to the purchase. Aside from the technology, the brand is like a dinosaur. Bankruptcy & monetary issues led to several corporate members leaving for something new, or being laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Escada's designs are what is killing it now. The designers are still living on the glory days when the rest of the world has moved on. Bring some liveliness to the brand, and you'll attract younger buys with money.
