    I worked at Perry Ellis International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and product. Very friendly people in corporate office.

    Cons

    Company is not sure what direction they want to go in. Very unorganzied and their human resource department needs help. They promote work life balance but the task and frustrations dont co-inside with the motto. They have a very sheep like approach to customer service and are not prepared to adapt to the current retail market. Plus IT is horrible and their systems are outdated for what they are trying to accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on localizing the business to fit individual markets. Get involved with the communities that your stores are opened in and that will help to build a loyal customer base. Stop the classic robotic approach to customer service and teach your employee's to have real human interactions with all walk of life and cultures . Stop the acronyms for customer service! It's not realistic approach and it stops the interaction from being natural. Instead teach your employees to have a very common every day coversations.( BE HUMAN). There is huge potential for growth with this company but you guys are way to far behind in software and customer service thinking. Even with an updated policy and procedure your methods are still outdated.
