    I have been working at Iconix Brand Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work with great people.
    It's like an agency since there are so many brands, but we own the brands so there isn't the pressure of "pleasing" a client.
    Variety.

    Cons

    Changing business model makes it hard to have structure.
    Everything is last minute.
    Too few people working on too many brands.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Iconix Brand Group full-time

    Pros

    There used to be some really great people working there, and interesting projects

    Cons

    Currently in transition, constant mixed signals coming from management, unorganized, frustrating environment. Their brands require a lot of work in order to succeed and there are not enough people to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the people who have a history with the company and the brands, instead of hiring outside consultants. It is leading to undermining longtime employees and also jeopardizing the brand messaging by involving people who don't truly understand the brand essence.
