    I worked at Nautica Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generally the people I worked with were great. I led a very talented and committed team. Work/Life balance was great

    Cons

    There was too much favoritism and promoting of people who were not qualified to be in the roles they were in. Marketing department didn't have a clue, in terms of how to support the business and drive sales. Overall the brand is not set up for success from the corporate level.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership was extremely lacking on many levels. No idea how to manage the complex business model. Wasted so much time trying to figure out who the customer was, because they didn't like the customer they had. Spend more time and effort appealing to the clients you have.

    Pros

    great job while in college

    Cons

    not a place for long time growth, if you are not an actual manager you get no respect. Terrible irresponsible highschoolers work there as well

    Pros

    Discount, benefits, vacation/pto time, and part time associate earn vacation after 1 year.

    Cons

    This has to be one of the worst ran divisions of VF Corporation due to the poor Senior Management.
    -Lack of training for the stores. If you want to learn and grow, you have to figure it out on your own cause there are no training materials and the SR. Leadership is clueless on company procedures. Senior Management says "we will get you training materieals" except they have been saying it every year with no action!
    -Micromanaged every detail and managers by intimidation and threats of replacement.
    -Wont let a sale run its course. Changes the sale signs and banners 3-5 times a week.
    -Merchandising the stores is also very micromanaged and the company is requiring stores to remove product from the floors and keep limited product for the customers.
    -Payroll has been cut so low that stores can barely function. Overtime is not allowed and the staff is always stressed and no longer enjoys their jobs.
    - Senior management expects a dog and pony show when anyone from corporates visits the stores. Senior Management is only worried about thier IMAGE and not the reality of real life day to day operations.
    -Corporate is eliminating long tenured people and positions in hopes to save the company which is creating a lack of loyalty to the company.
    -The culture is horrible and you get no praise or even a thank you from upper management. The only feedback you receive is NEGATIVE and why you are not making the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Take a serious look at the Senior Leadership running the company and how are they having an effect on the morale and development of the team in order to grow the business. Take pride in your people and train them rather than making them feel unappreciated and not contributing. The company used to be one of the best places to work but unfortunately this is no longer the case!

    I worked at Nautica Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Hourly pay: gives work life balance
    - Changes being made. Owned by VF which has helped Nautica rebrand itself
    - New corporate team in the last couple years: new views of how to get things done
    - Same level employees get along great

    Cons

    - Lack of communication: no transparency in downward communication, upward communication needs to be "brown nose" mentality. Senior leadership lack ability in listening to real honest feedback from the field
    - Inconsistent leadership development: want to grow? Have to go learn on your own...
    - Focus on new goods and new customer (which is great and actually a pro), BUT the same should be done with employees. New demographic of employees don't work for just a paycheck, senior leadership doesn't have the ability to motivate new and/or current employees
    - Lack of real training guide and leadership guidance.

    Advice to Management

    Employee focus is just as important as customer focus. Nautica has plenty of managers that have tenure of 10+ years, but nothing has changed to help grow the new retail workforce.
