    I worked at The Jones Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, that's about it.

    Cons

    Ridiculous sales goals, lack of hours.

    Advice to Management

    Putting so much pressure on people, that they are just walking out. The demands do not equal the rewards. The salaries are a lot less then some of the competitors. I had 4 weeks of vacation, but could only take a week off at a time, even though the store had plenty of coverage and noone else was on vacation. Not a whole lot opportunities for growth.


  2. "Too big, too siloed"

    I have been working at The Jones Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job security. The potential to restore venerable, widely recognized brand names like Anne Klein. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Too many companies under one masthead that never really merged. Wholesale mentality drives retail organization. Everyone doesn't share email address (@jny, @ninewest, etc), much less vision for brands.

    Advice to Management

    Marketing doesn't know what they don't know, so they don't ask. Why has no customer asked what happened to Lloyd Boston, or who's Wendy. Instead they call it Jones OF New York. Mktg thinks they're in Devil Wears Prada, while customer is ethnic, plus-sized, teacher, who likes to be shown what matches what. Oh, and customer can spell - another big difference. QA standards for national campaigns must be raised across the board.
