    I worked at Max Mara full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at Max Mara was interesting to say the least. The managers Nicole & Kristan was absolutely hands on but not micro-managers. The walls of Max Mara was what you made it to be, meaning if you were having a bad day hadn't open by 530pm. Either you pick-up the phone and starting calling old- clients, or you got really lucky and the right person came in. Now its 930pm their still shopping 30,000k later your were smiling. Yes this did happen to me!

    Cons

    After the catalog had been mailed out to clients, the hottest pcs. were either sent to NY or BH. We did receive some popular pcs however, the client would always want what was pre-sold before the merchandise would be delivered.

    Advice to Management

    To listen to both sides of the story whether it's good or bad!

    I have been working at Max Mara full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tight knit community that pushes and encourages entrepreneurial ownership of the business. You will learn an incredible amount in a short time. A place to enhance all your skills.

    Cons

    People are less of a priority than most companies. True Fashion company mentality, think Devil Wears Prada. You will wear many different hats apart from yours to get the "job" done.

    Advice to Management

    Be more organized and communicate more via openings and projects so not to work harder at the end.
