Former Employee - Merchandiser in Fort Lee, NJ
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

There is no dress code. Office environment is more or less casual.
Free lunch in the cafeteria from 12pm - 1pm !

Cons

The management is very out of touch with reality and more importantly the urban womenswear market. It is safe to say that they know barely anything about their client.

Advice to Management

Please restructure your company and hire non-koreans, especially in creative positions. I know a handful of employees who earn the same amount they did when they started out here 5 years ago.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - decent to competitive compensation in the industry
    - decent benefits
    - free lunch
    - good location (by fort lee main st.) close to many highways, and local businesses
    - will form a camaraderie among peers (mostly due to the cons listed below)

    Cons

    - expect to be overworked. overtime pay does not exist. management expects you to stay late and work overtime. (i.e. korean corporate lifestyle)
    - your personal life becomes work life. not a job good for a family man
    - senior staff is more detrimental than helpful
    - work is not rewarding or encouraging

    Advice to Management

    stop hiring management through nepotism. get out of your own way.
