    I worked at Guess? full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are fresh out of school looking to start your career this is a great spring board, but don't stay too long. Great benefits, annual holiday party, onsite cafe. My time here was great, but I lived in fear for my job. It wasn't until after I left I realized that not all companies are like Guess. Be very cautious going in.

    Cons

    Beware of the bi-yearly layoffs! No raises or bonuses this past year. The organization is very parallel. Not much opportunity for job growth. Don't be late by a minute or you will risk being fired by the founder. He leads through fear.

    Advice to Management

    Until Paul, the founder, steps down there is no hope for being a thriving company it was back in the day.
