    Not many cons. Place looks messy. Could be better organized and cleaner environment. Staff could be a little more friendlier.

    I worked at Fame Jeans full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you want to learn a way to make cheap clothes in low cost countries, this is the place. You can travel and meet all there suppliers. You can also see there tricks to importing the garments

    Cons

    The boss is always playing golf, so he's never around. No formal meetings or management ever took place. Totally chaotic and disorganized. Always looking to put out one business related fire with another fire....bad environment with ZERO direction

    Advice to Management

    Get some competent people to manage the company

    Pros

    Great place to learn fast and on your own.
    Always up to new projects and ideas.
    Nice new building, with gym and cafeteria with chef.

    Cons

    No human resource.
    Poor upper management, little communication on decision makings and changes.
    Many turn-overs.
    No structure between departments allowing each employee to work their own way and adapting to each..

    Advice to Management

    Increase communication with employees, have more meetings on the direction and to bring the team together.
    Build a proper structure for each department to follow at no exception.
