    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Perry Ellis International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, Reasonable PTO, Overtime

    Cons

    Says they are family focused when it is only the upper management that is focused on, upper management will take credit for ideas given, overtime was extremely short noticed and mandatory, didn't handle pandemic well and laid off employees that were about to (5 years or less) enter retirement, used or on FMLA, or weren't their "yes" people. Stay away and find a better environment to work in.
