    I worked at Steven Madden full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Not many other than shoe discounts.

    Cons

    Dedication and commitment are overlooked or taken for granted rather than rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Management has a very bad habit of getting personally involved in the lives of the employees. Such as parents that wish to become "friends" with their children.

    I worked at Steven Madden part-time

    Pros

    Pros were definitely the discounts and free shoes. Working there you had first dibs on whatever u wanted which was cool

    Cons

    Hard to grow with this company. The pay is horrible for the amount of hours and work they make you do. Cooperate doesn’t do anything to help. They only care about managers and managers usually give all their dirty work to associates

    Advice to Management

    Be more caring. Actually talk to your workers. Stop giving them the work you’re supposed to be doing.

    I worked at Steven Madden full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Good mentors if you are lucky enough to work for one of the very few good managers. Great place to be if you want to learn fast and move fast. Lot's of great coworkers. Great resources for teams.

    Cons

    HORRIBLE culture. Terrible management style. HR is a joke. Sexual harassment happens on every corner an screaming managers are everywhere. It's a very intimidating place to work if you do not have thick skin. Expectation for employees to work very late hours, awful work/family balance.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your culture, in your employees. Appreciate people and show them that you do. Hire all new HR. Don't have BBQ at the disgusting parking lot and make it "mandatory"

    I worked at Steven Madden part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get 50% off shoes! Room to move up towards being a manager in the store, but only due to huge turnover. Good for marketing, sales experience.

    Cons

    Nobody wants to take blame for mistakes made. All the people I worked with seem to be fake towards each other.
