    I worked at Marchesa for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Amazing people So much to learn if you take the initiative Hands on learning when it coming to designing and constructing couture gowns

    Cons

    Staff is overworked. Designers are not paid overtime and expected to work long days and most weekends. Sometimes we went two month without a single day off. Expect to work most holidays. The entire place is very dirty.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your work environment. Take a look at how hard your staff works for this brand and reward them as such. They deserve way more than the little bits you give them. They make the magic happen while you give them pennies.

    I worked at Marchesa full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful product.... that’s about it.

    Cons

    Company disorganization, they barely provide office supplies to their employees. They still run as if they were a start up company which is very disappointing. lack of upper management, No office room. Several employees have nasty attitudes....only few friendly staff. I would be very careful in this environment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees have to say, there’s a lot behind closed doors that happens or is spoken about and no one does or says anything.

      I worked at Marchesa full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The team is very friendly and young. Late nights are fun.

      Cons

      There is no work-life balance. The company owes every single one of their vendors and materials always come in late, a week or two before line opening, and the whole team is expected to work overnight to finish the collection. Once they made work the atelier team (sewers, cutters and pattern makers) 36 hours straight before a show. 6 months later, they still hadn´t paid their overtime fees.

      Advice to Management

      Better money management, More ethical.

      Pros

      You're able to work on developing the collection by making samples. You'll get to work on the actual garments for the collections.

      Cons

      Legally, they take advantage of the interns by working them long hours and even having them come in on the weekends prior to show because they dont have enough hired help.

      Pros

      The talented and hardworking employees.

      Cons

      Management, particularly the CEO, has no idea what they (he) are doing. The company is lucky the Weinstein company is basically keeping the company afloat. They do not have any money to pay their vendors and luckily there was no issue with paychecks. It is true (from previous reviews) the word around the industry the company is going under - and fast. There is no standard for the way they do things, the CEO is very unprofessional...

      Advice to Management

      Find a new CEO to help bring this company where is should and not just the founders brother who has no experience running a company. You have great and talented employees but if you want to have employees stay there for longer than a year you need a different system.

      I worked at Marchesa full-time

      Pros

      The collection and bridal are stunning. Wholesale account buyers were wonderful to work with as well.

      Cons

      Marchesa has absolutely no money. I did the job of 4 people and was told I needed to work weekends with no comp days given. How am I supposed to work 6 days a week. Design worked 3 months in a row without any days off. The Management (if that's what you want to call them) have no idea what they are doing and support an unhealthy work environment. They constantly have their doors closed which is unproductive and intimidating....
