Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Work/life balance is decent. Not many people work late hours - most leave at 5 or 5:30, even top management.
Decent employee discount.
Very casual dress code.
Summer Fridays.

Cons

Benefits are very expensive.
Salaries are below average for Bergen County.
"Good old boy" network. It's not what you know, it's who you know.
Too many closed door meetings.
HR management is terrible.

Advice to Management

Stop all the closed door meetings - after all the layoffs it just makes employees more paranoid.
Make benefits package more competitive.
Improve communication between CEO and President to rank and file. Eliminate the class system.

    Current Employee - Third Key in San Marcos, TX
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Sales experience, well known product, networking with great clientele, small staff size, fun and laid-back work enviroment, hourly wage is extremely competitive compared to similar retail stores in the area.

    Cons

    No raises, commission bonus plans do not adequately reward sales associates from smaller revenue stores even if they are consistently hitting their monthly budgets. Outdated inventory system can be frustrating and administrative staff tend to be condescending to line level employees and store level managers. I feel like they think they are in a more prestigious position than what they really are, and are slow to go out of their way to help track down product and transfer product.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to realize that quick decisions that are not thought through well, can result in exponentially more work for line level staff and store-level mangement. Put yourself in the shoes of a store manager before you significantly alter his/her daily responsibilities regarding budget, paperwork, and enforcement of new policies.

    Allow store managers to run their stores how they want, including time-off, daily scheduling, lunch allowances, budgets, and access to the computer and internet.

    I have been working at Movado Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent people to work with. Movado manufacturers a variety of watches low to high prices.

    Cons

    changing work schedules, working on weekends and holidays and low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Please take a look at the low commission rate offered versus the competition.Perhaps more monthly spiffs to compensate for lower earnings.
