    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Friendly staff, decent benefits, corporate pride regarding achievements in retail clothing sales. Very much oriented to clothing design and purchase.

    Cons

    Management has attitude that Dress barn is one of few companies (on clothing retail?) outside of New York City so there is no need to be competitive in compensation. Management is poorly trained in employee relations. Little concern for retaining employees. Very little investment or interest in employee growth outside of buyers and designers.

    Advice to Management

    Outsource IT or take greater interest in IT operations.Managers need training in employee motivation skills, negotiation skills, Time management, IT managers need training in Project Management.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Worked over the summer as an intern. Treated very fairly and was paid well compared to other options. Provided good experience.

    Cons

    Some of the work was menial, but once I demonstrated my competency I was allowed to take on more interesting tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Department managers seemed busy with meeting with other departments and was often not available. Could provide more secondary level authority within departments.
