    Pros

    - Amazing learning experience, especially in such an exclusive brand (it was really interesting to understand how it all works behind the scenes)
    - No coffee runs/deliveries (it was a little bit more hands on than typical fashion internships)
    - "Come as you are" culture (you can dress however you want and be who you are)

    Cons

    - Unpaid (and really bad pay/benefits for full times employees) - no compensation for transportation or food.
    - Ungodly hours- we were expected to be there at 8:30-9AM and we would leave every day around 7:30PM. We were not given time for lunch- we were expected to work in front of the computer while eating our food (if we went out we felt judged).
    - No evaluation to know how we're doing.
    - No samples or discounts on clothes.

    Advice to Management

    - Give evaluation of interns and constructive criticism- it felt like the employees did not care about us one second

    Pros

    International and global size of the company, there are a lot of great brands to work with along with a lot of challenges to face

    Cons

    In some areas there is a limited number of internal employees to face the challenges and in some case it takes too long time to make a decision

    Improve team working, accelerate on some decision
