    I have been working at Rolex full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's hard to find a true 9-5 work day in NYC, especially with such great benefits and a non-competitive office culture. Staff tend to stay for decades, which speaks highly of the culture and support.

    Cons

    However, with long-term staff, staleness and degraded skill sets is a problem. Opportunities for training, development and advancement are slim to non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Salary and benefits are not the only forms of compensation; investment in an individual's continued development is just as important and crucial to the company as the individual.

    I have been working at Rolex full-time

    Pros

    Really good benefits, 4 weeks vacation after 1 year, many volunteer opportunities, 4O1k, holidays, and personal days. It is a sharing profit company and you get a 13k watch after 10 years of working. Nice and clean environment

    Cons

    Checks aren't heavy. The basic salary isn't that good.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a little bit more of opportunity to learn and grow within the company
