    Upper management, company doesn’t care about you, horrible low pay, company expects too much for little pay, no raises, expect you to work for free, expect you to live and breathe the store even on your days off, can’t call in sick even when you are sick and have sick pay

    I have been working at Steven Madden full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Everyday there is something new happening. Work can hardly be described as boring. Steve is very much present in the day to day creative development of the company, which is great for morale. They've stepped up their game when it comes to having employee perks, such as FOODA.

    Cons

    It can feel like the time of employees is not valued. Work is expected to be completed within in an unacceptable short time. Turnover is high due to this lack of recognition and inability to delegate well or incentivize the work load.

    Advice to Management

    Realistic expectations for work. Redelegate. Re-evaluate time frames.
