    Pros

    Loved working in the fashion industry, and fast paced environment.

    Getting only 1 weekend off a month.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to stop being a clique with certain associates. Favoritism needs to be ended so other associates can have trust in management.

    People are nice hard working and honest. Communication is open and there is full transparency. So refreshing to work at a place where it’s obvious people want you to succeed and will willingly give you the tools and support to do so.

    Cons

    Cannot think of any.
    Every one can get a bit stressed, but that’s found any place of business.
    All good things

    I worked at Michael Kors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a great experience.

    Cons

    None. I did my work and no one bothered me.

    Advice to Management

    Every one was good, respectful, and understanding. I had health issues and so did a member of my family, they were understanding, and caring about my issues. I can't say anything negative about this company, I gave 100% and they appreciated my work ethic, even with the problems life had dealt me at the time.

    I worked at Michael Kors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good benefits with discounts on their items, sample sale, health, vision, etc.
    - Nice holiday schedule, but is evened out by low vacation days that are not carried over yearly. Still not too bad.
    - Direct management was good to work with, no micromanagement. Team members were good people to work with.
    - Free employee parking (you would be surprised at how many companies don't give their employees this option around the area).

    Cons

    - Salary wasn't bad, but was not the highest either. No end of year bonus. Could be better.
    - There seemed to be limited options on career growth & learning and development. Wasn't sure where my career was headed towards.
    Very minor things but should be mentioned:
    - Traffic can be bad at times making it hard to leave parking deck due to location of building. Shuttle that takes you to Secaucus Junction is inconsistent at times and doesn't show up, causing you to miss trains which can be frustrating.
    - Food options are limited unless you have a car.
    - Bit of a divide between NY and NJ office unless you have a reason to visit both.

    Advice to Management

    Ask your employees for their opinion on what can be improved more frequently. If you know that you can't give them the highest salary, give them additional benefits such as set remote work days. Allow your employees to grow and develop their skills through better Learning & Development opportunities. Have upper management be more involved - John Idol can keep delivering the same speech every holiday party but I didn't feel he cared one bit about us.
