    I worked at Ermenegildo Zegna full-time

    Pros

    Good products, strong retail presence

    Cons

    Not many employee perks, discount is not great (extremely hard to use if you're a woman), male driven organization/ sort of a boys club, big disconnect with HQ in Italy

    Advice to Management

    HR and CEO (NY) are unapproachable and put themselves above employees. I did not know one employee that was happy during the time I was there. For a company with such a strong history there is little culture within the office.

    I worked at Ermenegildo Zegna full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great small company where you can get exposure to a lot of decision making. The people that work there are great too - some of the nicest group of people I've worked with.

    Cons

    Very little that you can do with such a small company that is family owned. All decisions are made by the Zegna family. So there is little opportunity in doing cool/neat ad hoc analysis.

    Advice to Management

    Involve the local teams in some of the decision making that is done at HQ - Italy or a rotational program to grow/foster the talent you currently have.


  6. "Assistant General Manager"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Brookline, MA

    I worked at Ermenegildo Zegna (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good training programs that ensured product knowledge and enhanced selling, product knowledge and management skills. Fair compensation. High level of clientele.

    Cons

    Can be a hostile work environment for women. Human Resources Department was not helpful or supportive. Bonuses were made difficult to achieve. Retail hours make work/life balance challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Stores would function better if management was more responsive to staff and the specific needs of individual stores.

    I have been working at Ermenegildo Zegna part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment. Amazing, quality products. Company is not only dedicated to customers but the employees as well; for example sending new tailors out to training, just to make sure the tailors can meet company standards.

    Cons

    Only challenge working here is not getting more hours. My position can't be full time, when if i was full time i would make operations go smoother rather than the salesmen deal with my work when I'm gone.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. Great company. I Love Zegna.

    Pros

    A great working environment. Co-workers are very nice.

    Cons

    Right now, there is no downside. It's better to have more sizes of cloth and shoes.
