    Pros

    Stability as a corporate company, lots of opportunities to work in different areas in Marketing, experience working with other teams, working with other brands at the company. Flexibility, good PTO options.

    Cons

    Horrible health insurance, everyone is severely understaffed and underpaid, the company took forever to catch onto the digital disruption movement and now are competing in an industry that has surpassed them. The company's marketing budget is comical.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying your employees what they're worth or hire them a bigger team. As a fashion company you should know that paying your employees a fair and desirable salary helps fuel the corporate economy and helps you make money!

    Pros

    A way to get into the fashion industry.

    Cons

    You always have to be on top of people since everyone is overworked and understaffed. CEO rules like a dictator and nothing has logic, just something Oscar demanded. No investment into employees at all.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees properly and fairly. So many people are on the ledge, and will and can leave at a moment's notice.
