I worked at Izod full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The discount was great. Certain managers really understood the work life balance.

Cons

Very clickish, felt like high school all over again. If you fit in you will not have any problems there.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to what is going on around you. Morale is poor and needs to be addressed. They recently have had some management changes and hopefully this will help the company get back on the right track. If not I am not sure about the future.

    I have been working at Izod full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generous associate discount, exciting new company direction, excellent 401(k) benefits, amazing dental plan, sky rocketing stock prices.

    Cons

    Izod provides a typical retail establishment. Focusing on the Outlets, traffic is high and sometimes unmanageable. Stores are allotted hours to schedule based on sales achieved for that week - and they are always neck and neck. Having a small staff and not being able to schedule everyone for their desired (or hired) weekly hours creates a tense working experience. The Human Resources department in Bridgewater, NJ are helpful when it comes to basic questions, but confused when facing challenges. Daily direction from the company used to be back and forth, but now that PVH (parent company) has acquired Warnaco, each division seems to have a clear focus on their individual directions in upholding their brands.

    Advice to Management

    Train Human Resources more on one-on-one challenges : i.e. an associate is being harassed, multiple offenses to policy associates, when there is an injury on the job - seeing that corrections have been made to prevent this from happening again, etc. It almost feels like there is an underlying union with this company. Create a No-Retaliation policy - employees almost feel threatened and/or that their job is on the line when coming forth about an issue that needs immediate assistance. Also, promote within via face-to-face interviewing and qualifying for positions. Way too much hiring outside of the company while others are passed up and left sitting in their positions for years on end. Do not rely solely on word of mouth from direct supervisors - their advice is not always made between two agreeing parties.
