    Pros

    product, team building, working with young people

    HR is non existent. I had a manager who basically berated and antagonized me every day. Unrealistic sales goals.

    Believe in your team. Hire people who are actually qualified for the job. And don't talk down to them like they're children.

    Pros

    Mostly amazing staff. Although most have left the company due to bad management and deteriorating company culture. There are a few bad apples with influence in the company so beware.

    Cons

    Terrible work-life balance, Terrible and out dated office space, Smoking in the office and showroom. Management will not have your back or support you.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care about your employees and treat them with respect.

    "Highly Disorganized"

    I worked at Marc Jacobs part-time

    Pros

    You always have access to sample sales which is great, especially right around the time Christmas rolls around. Not much apart from that.

    Cons

    This is the most disorganized company I have ever worked for. No one seems to know what they're doing, and the company suffers for it in a large way.

    Advice to Management

    Someone who actually cares about the company needs to take control. Everyone's sick of these guys coming in and pretending to know what they're doing when they're just some big finance guy who has no idea/doesn't care about fashion. Things need to be fixed from the ground up.

    Pros

    Fun place to work. Great people (non management). Lots of opportunities to volunteer to do other things and get involved.

    Cons

    They try to hold people back instead of advancing their careers. They will take and take and take without ever considering an advancement and pay increase.

    Advice to Management

    Find more value in the people you have
