    I worked at Guess? full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Genuine and sincere colleagues who work hard and have the best interest of the company at heart. Company is iconic in the apparel industry and is universally recognized. Good benefits are offered to employees.

    Cons

    Messy management system. Company does not foster and nurture talent. Challenging upper management increases the chances of shortening your tenure. Management positions are always constantly handed out to the wrong employees.

    I have been working at Guess? full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learn quickly - Great team and meet fantastic contacts - heavy workload but worth it.

    Cons

    They hired a new director of development, and it's quickly going down in moral, negative atmosphere , as they hired someone that has no idea how to run a department, factories are already complaining and our system has been slow down to bottle neck speed. At this point, myself and a few other are looking to elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire someone that can lead, someone that can bring our department to the next level - instead of someone that has made it almost impossible to push forward in anyway.

    Pros

    - Good discount (40% and 50% on certain weekends)
    - Usually nice employees

    Cons

    - A lot of on call shifts
    - Mandatory shift changes very last minute which seems unethical
    - Not allowed to call in sick unless you find a replacement, also unethical
    - Can't leave store when closing until it's completely clean so would have to stay until past midnight many times

    Advice to Management

    Start being more understanding towards employee's concerns and needs
