    I worked at G-III Apparel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Success of their business model
    Culturally diverse
    Bonus driven

    Cons

    Company values practically not existent, promotions are not based on merit but "who belongs to the club"
    Executive level lacks of civilization, respect and diplomacy. HR calls it "G-III Managerial Style"

    Advice to Management

    Have the executive level attend cultural sensitivity / behavioral training classes once a year to keep them in touch with their culturally diverse environment.
    **Intimidating management styles across executive level causes a nervous unproductive employee

    I have been working at G-III Apparel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Good benefits- choose from 2 healthcare options, vacations (10 days), sick days (6 days), floating holiday (1). Early closing before a holiday (2:00pm). All major holiday (non religious).
    - Very good people
    - Casual at most times. You can talk to the VP of your division like a regular co-worker, no one is pretentious.
    -They do prefer to promote within
    -Early salary increments (very minimum, but it's something!)

    Cons

    -Sometimes there's no direction
    -in my division, they're scared of firing people, which means there's a lot of people there that shouldn't be there who are just screwing up or not really contributing the same as other
    -No real way to grow, in terms of position. A lot of people have been there for a long time, so unless someone quits or gets fired, you won't be moving on up

    Advice to Management

    -Get rid of anyone that is not really bringing anything to the table and open space for others to shine
    -Make sure everyone understands how the division works as a whole and not only what there department does, it will make everything flow better
