    There are some quality people that make it fun. Great brands and discounts.

    Can be unfairly tough at times....all the time. Low morale amongst teams. There can be favoritism within managers and direct reports. Recognition is one-sided. Lots of finger pointing and no direction. Old school work mentality.

    I worked at Perry Ellis International full-time

    Pros

    Not really anything positive about working for this company.

    Cons

    Lots of back stabbing and no team effort. Everyone out for themselves.. CEO is all about himself, egotistical and EVERYTHING has to go through him. Loves to hear himself talk, thinks he knows everything, thinks he’s a “visionary”.
    Place is run by fear, lots of yelling and degrading. No loyalty or employee appreciation. Will drop you without warning,
    Bonus is non existent and at CEO discretion, even if you have it stated in your employment agreement
    Benefits are horrible and very expensive. Stay away from this place

    Advice to Management

    Try being supportive, maybe constructive criticism instead of destructive behavior.
