    -discount is great
    -reasonable "gift" purchasing options for friends/family

    I worked at Vineyard Vines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Vacation/holiday time was more than reasonable. Drew in some great talent.

    Cons

    Abusive management. Did not give the same opportunities to women as they did to men. Salaries were low for the industry. Growth opportunities were based on longevity and who you showboated in front of at the company rather than merit or how hard you worked.

    Advice to Management

    Take complaints against abusive managers seriously, and train your managers to know what is considered abusive behaviors so that maybe you could prevent it from happening in the first place.
