    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    gaining extensive knowledge of fabrics, techinal fabric development and sourcing. exposure to textile trends and fabric shows. Gain professional demeanor and are introduced to many overseas and local fabric vendors.

    Cons

    terrible pay. extremely long hours. If you work normal business hours - 9-6 - then you're not working hard enough. upper management is difficult to work with. you are used as more of a 'paper pusher' instead of fabric researcher. slow promotion rate, extremely high turnover. the VP does not appreciate those employees who have stuck it out for more than a year (which is sadly a long time in BCBG standards), refuses to promote and instead hires management from NY/east coast fashion industry who end up regretting the position and leave after less than a year.

    they place a hold on pay raises across the company but Max Azria rides in a stretch hummer/expedition limousine everyday. some is wrong here.

    Advice to Management

    pay better, treat your employees more fairly, bring people up.
