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.
