    Pros

    Most of the worker bees are great. If you get the opportunity to prove yourself, you can go a long way.

    Cons

    Management rules by fear and sets unrealistic expectations for goals. Don't expect to make a bonus here- it rarely happens. Moral is terrible and it makes for a stressful working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people. If you here the same complaints about upper management and do nothing about it then shame on you!

    Pros

    Good employees discount. Easy jobs. Nice co workers. Plenty time to use your cellular and take care of personal matters!!

    Cons

    Employees are not happy. Turn around is huge. Very poor HR dept.(none) . Upper management is awful, they only care about themselves and how not to work and get the credit.
    CEO is new and has a terrible personality , He thinks he is God.

    Advice to Management

    Look more at the small positions and recognize their work. Sell the company to people that know how to handle a business properly.

    I worked at Perry Ellis International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Some people are nice and some provide a family like atmosphere.
    - Good learning opportunity of how a public.corporate company works.
    - Easy flexible schedule (for the most part).
    - Variety of restaurants in the area (lol).
    - Descent technological infrastructure.
    - Retail infrastructure is "ok".
    - Process of procurement is great.

    After having my guard up all my time there. There are a select few that I was able to trust. And only from those few is where I was able to learn the front-end and back-end of such a large corporate company.

    Cons

    - C-Level Management needs improvement
    - Too many unqualified people playing "Director", "Vice-President", "SrVP", "ExecutiveVP".
    - Too many people unwilling to embrace change to better the company due to arrogance. The typical mentality of "we did it like this for years why change it under my watch"
    - Too many people willing to backstab others to better their self-image for upper management acceptance.
    - They spend money in the wrong areas and not in the employees that want to make Perry Ellis great again.
    - They only pay their family members, and those who "leech" on the backs of C-level management personnel because they are of the Jewish Religion. So if your Jewish you're good.
    - The IT department works with old hardware equipment (servers, switches, routers, workstations, laptops, and wireless communication) yet claims its the "latest and greatest". Management Style needs improvement starting from the CIO down.
    - Retail IT Department is short staffed snd poorly managed. Support Team is great but lack time and resources.
    - Salary-wise they pay you as an entry-level employee but want Top Knowledge and years of experience to only land with a manager that will hold you back from improving the culture, improving cost improving process, improving functionality, and providing top-notch service to those internal and external.
    - Benefit-wise you are getting the bare minimum so that upper management can pay for their boats, cars, lavish vacations and for certain departments to waste money on expensive sales meeting presentations and also piss-poor marketing.
    - On site security and building management is just horrific. VP of Security and Facilities needs to step down as this guy is holding back the potential of others to improve the safety of all employees. Camera system is so outdated you can forget about playing back film from a day ago let alone a week old.
    - Politics and favoritism is the main culture at Perry Ellis.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of hiring outside help for accounting and financing you should hire a company to investigate the culture, the process and individuals.

    IT Department needs to be overhauled. From who manages what to who manages who. Too much separation between offices mainly (NYH, and MIA).

    Get rid of all the bad-apples (you know who they are).

    Change in process is healthy.

    Promote healthy teamwork.

    TRANSPARENCY IS THE KEY FOR ALL LEVELS OF MANAGEMENT !!!!!
