    I worked at Three Dots full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Generally a lot of teamwork and you have a lot of responsibilities that you can add to your resume. Most of the staff is nice!

    Cons

    Upper management has no idea what goes on on a lower management level, therefore there have been some unethical occurrences.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management should most definitely restructure the business to make employees happier overall. Just because it's the fashion industry doesn't mean it needs to be so stereotypically cuthroat.

    I worked at Three Dots as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some employees are hardworking and keep this place afloat.

    Cons

    No consistency, owner doesn't know what she wants and is wishy washy. She makes irrational decisions. Upper management has no idea what is going on. Everyone is overloaded with more responsibilities than they can handle. High expectations and terrible compensation. No bonuses or raises. Turnover rate extremely high. Constant layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together! Appreciate your employees. They are the ones that keep you in business.

    I worked at Three Dots full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The team (not in upper management) is very hardworking. The employees truly try their hardest to achieve the unrealistic expectations thrust upon them.

    Cons

    There are a handful of bad seeds that seem determined to see this company fail. They go above and beyond to make the employees' jobs as difficult as possible. Lack of structure. Upper management has been with the company for years and is thus unwilling to adapt to the business' needs. It's such a shame that despite all of the hardworking employees' best efforts, this company will never perform to its full potential due to its own "leaders".

    (No raises or bonuses. For years.)

    Advice to Management

    Be adaptable.
    Be understanding.
    Be reasonable.
    Stop being two-faced, untrustworthy, and unprofessional.

    Appreciate your employees.

    I worked at Three Dots (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers and other employees are great people - hardworking and genuinely care about the company. The few benefits that were available were innovative; for example, wellness program was new and pretty good.

    Cons

    Owner was very negative, unreasonable, and unprofessional. Owner makes ill-advised unilateral decisions at the drop of a hat and will disregard the advice, logical reasoning, or concerns of other subordinates. There was no professional growth; promotions and raises were stagnant for several years. Benefits were minimal and decreased over time. Owner did not appear to appreciate the hard work and dedication of any of her subordinates.

    Advice to Management

    Owner is too involved and needs to allow the employees she hired do their jobs. Owner needs to separate her personal life from her professional life.

    Pros

    - Co-workers/colleagues are very nice and helpful.
    - Overall, the brand is pretty well known & has a good reputation in the apparel industry, so it's a great place to have on your resume.
    - They treat employees to great deals and discounts on their clothing. They even hold exclusive, employee sales.
    - Christmas bonuses & party, and Fourth of July parties. They allow the occasional birthday celebrations in the office as well.

    Cons

    - The owner works from out-of-state, so it is difficult to communicate, properly.
    - Have cut back on regular employees. Employees left over resume the responsibilities of the laid off individuals, on top of their regular work load, sometimes with Saturday's on top of it.
    - The overall design aesthetic is all across the board due to conflicting ideas regarding marketing, design, etc. from various individual perspectives in upper management.
    - Upper management does not take too kindly to suggestions outside of those given by freelance consultants.

    Advice to Management

    - Management needs to operate in an organized and rational manner. The current owner tends to be very unorganized and has several contradictory ideas. She will love something on Monday, and hate it by Wednesday.
    - Need a management team that does not hire outsourced consultants, but rather uses the employees already available to achieve their goals.
    - Need to listen to their current professional staff, that is educated and well experienced in the apparel industry, and hearing their input & constructive feedback. They are there to help!
    - Most of all, they need to respect their employees.

    Pros

    Wonderful product and generous discounts, including excellent sample sales. Good reputation for product within the retail and media worlds. Clean and modern branding.

    Cons

    Scary management/owners (see 'Advice to Management").
    Management was hard to please in any situation.
    Every day was different-you never knew what you would get from management (good mood or bad? yikes).
    No clear direction with marketing and promotional goals--just negative feedback on what wasn't liked.
    Lots of negativity flowing from top down.

    Advice to Management

    Owner of company is too difficult to describe briefly. Think The Devil Wears Prada's, Miranda, but with more emotional communication difficulties with lots of strange fears and phobias adding to 'quirkiness' of personality and leadership style.
    Management was bad at communicating direction of their promotional wants, but was always eager to criticize when something was not up to par. Overall, this company has potential to be GREAT to work for if fresh, new management came in and prioritized the direction for the company inside and out. They need to stick with a plan and go for it with full gusto instead of changing minds and goals on a whim (this includes design planning and marketing in addition to staff they hire/fire randomly).

    "Amazing coworkers but unstable working environment"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Three Dots full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers outside of management are extremely supportive of each other and working environment is friendly oat of the time, a lot of learning opportunities, clothing is produced in the united states

    Cons

    Low chance of growth with company, lower level employees are poorly paid and highly taken advantage of at times, lack of respect for employees, high stress and high pressure, lack of reward for hard work although no problem criticizing for mistakes, direction of line from owner of the company is very misguided , many are laid off and on top of that instead of employing others they give the tasks to other employees on top f their normal responsibilities without incentives

    Advice to Management

    Trust in the employees you hire to push the brand to succeed, creative direction should be controlled by creative director and designers rather than owner of company who is out of state
