    I worked at Kenneth Cole full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Creativity was fostered and supported. A passionate leader in Kenneth who put forth a social message in a commercial retail environment. Good office atmosphere to work in. Great co-workers and comradery.

    Cons

    Retail management leadership was poor at the President level. Low moral at the store level and overall declining sales because of this. Tough to compete against the emergence of "fast fashion" retailers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing forward. Vet Sr. leadership candidates better before hiring.
