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

Pros

Getting a huge employee discount on Warnaco's brands, loading up my wardrobe with many giveaway sample items, excellent health benefits, good holidays and vacations, good 401(k) plan, decent profit sharing. It also has a somewhat relaxed, creative and open culture.

Cons

Limited growth in some areas, like IT, especially depending on your location. Fairly high staff turnover (although I don't know if it's unusual for that industry.) Raises and promotions are minimal unless you are already higher up.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Corporate atmosphere was friendly and supportive. Everyone is willing to educate employees to make their experience and job position fulfilling and well-rounded. Learned a great deal about the retail industry as well as financial planning.

    Cons

    Mediocre pay and long hours lead to burned out employees who ended up walking around the office multiple times a day.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management could benefit from some seminars on how to work with employees. Praise seldoms comes after hard work and it seems some employees receive preferential treatment in regards to bonuses and position advancement.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Summer half day Friday's are great

    Cons

    Typical large corporate environment. Its not about doing a good job. its about making sure the right people hear about that good job your doing. Work environment was much friendlier when there were 400 employees. The 120 left are under too much pressure and only concerned about keeping their jobs.
    Annual performance reviews are a joke and huge timewaister for everyone involved.
    No room for advancement. Other than managers and executives who there are much to much of, most regular employess have given up hope that anything will change and are just going through the motions.

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the present annual review system. It doesnt work, and just creates unecessary stress.
    Stop buying doughnuts for your group. Making them fat doesnt make them happy.
    Be honest wtih your groups, dont promise what cant be delivered.
