    I worked at Vera Wang full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a creative atmosphere. A lot of fun and knowledgeable people. Lots of sample sales. Vera's actually involved in the creative process unlike a lot of other big name designers.

    Cons

    Work life balance is crazy. Not everyone is knowledgeable in the position they fill. Does not hold true to the documented company policies. Not a very supportive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage. Learn to care for your employees. Enforce policies. Support your employees. Lead your team to succeed. Stand behind your words.

    I worked at Vera Wang full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good experience, good pay, beautiful product, company makes lots of money, has a bit of structure, Vera herself is an amazing and talented designer

    Cons

    late work hours, strict clothing (girls have to wear heels and all black at all times), very horrible attitudes, will be thrown under the bus if someone just doesn't like you, working with Vera is difficult and an exclusive club, appearance is more important than the work that is done, lots of talk about weight management, everyone is on some sort of unhealthy diet, very toxic environment

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to have nurturing leaders instead of ones that are only worried about themselves and get upset when someone else receives any kind of good feedback

    Pros

    Respected name in fashion world, young environment, small size allows more learning opportunities, lots of discounts, never a dull moment

    Cons

    Caddy, childish managers who value appearance over performance. False sense of superiority, brain-washing, very rah rah sorority at times. Rarely rewarded for achievements.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on looks and politics, more on ways to improve and grow as a team/brand in marketplace. Treat employees with respect and perhaps you will see less turnover. Build loyalty. Not who has the best hair.

    Pros

    Vera Wang Bridal is a better place to work. This review is targeted for Vera Wang Maids on Madison Salon. Basically, there aren't many good reasons to work at Maids on Madison unless you like to be berated and run ragged.

    Cons

    Hours, pay, rapid turnover rate, non-existent leadership from management, no advancement opportunities; the list goes on and on. Colleagues are generally incompetent, classless, vicious and unwilling to advance their knowledge for the greater good of the company

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to be confident and secure enough to allow their far and few between competent employees to run things when demonstrating competency. They also need to be present on the selling floor at all times and give greater support and guidance. They need to stop gossiping about employees to other employees behind their backs. Additionally, they need to stop cheating employees out of their hours on their paychecks and their commission checks. Cheapest company around and you never get to eat lunch. Ever.


  9. "design intern"

    I worked at Vera Wang (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is nice and friendly, If you ask questions, most likely they will answer you

    Cons

    too many interns work at the same time, you don't have enough work to do, sometimes you just sit there doing nothing, bad management when assign works to interns, they might forget to tell you not to come and no one works in the office

    I worked at Vera Wang full-time

    Pros

    It was nice being across from Shake Shack, but that was really it.

    Cons

    While some of the staff were nice, there were a lot of mean people. It felt like the devil wears prada, with people actively trying to get you fired even though you had done nothing wrong, were in different departments, didn't know them and were not at all a threat to their job. It was the most unpleasant place I have ever worked.
