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

Pros

- plm system
- huge showroom on premises

Cons

- Like other reviews; in interviews they mention several times that people who work there have been there for years making you think this might be a great company you can create a career.
- everyone including the executives is miserable and they will let you know.
- no direction and horrible quality product
- Remedial work load for an experienced candidate
- there are bins; everywhere unorganized
- product designers? but no actual designing involved
- zero culture
