    Pros

    One day the company was surround with talented people, they wanted to grow, and lead others by example. Those days are over.

    The company sets very negative examples. It begins with Management, they go by- " work smart not harder" ,while promotes ongoing conflicts and aggressive company culture. They manipulate others for them own success. HR and Management- gossips, laziness and double standards.

    Advice to Management

    The best employees are leaving you, they deserve better!

    I worked at Gianni Versace full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When I first started, it was amazing. New management was then put into place and it all went down hill.

    Cons

    Demoralizing, unorganized managers were recently hired. They frequently discredited the brand and all the hard work of their employees. They were uninterested in anyone currently working for the company and always talked down to myself and my coworkers in an extremely inappropriate manner.

    Advice to Management

    What goes around, comes around - when you treat people with disrespect.

    I worked at Gianni Versace full-time

    Pros

    Nice offices, fancy espresso machine with unlimited coffee, good compensation and benefits. Associate / coordinator staff are all very nice, summer Fridays and one day off a month extra in the winter

    Cons

    Bad management with zero mentorship for new hires from both the heads of department and HR. Environment feels like a sink or swim situation. Not knowing what to do is the employees fault, even if they were given bad or no direction on how things are done. Lots of miscommunication between what Milan headquarters want and what US headquarters should be doing. Tons of time wasted in long and pointless conference calls. Generally inefficient and outdated software used.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to train your employees! How can they help you if you do not show them the way to do so? Thinking that training someone is too time consuming is a shortsighted attitude that sets everyone up for failure. Any employee can be successful in any role as long as they are given the right training and help.
