      Pros

      Workplace that celebrates every win, no matter how small. Management always there to support you - I never feel like I’m walking on eggshells. My well-being is truly valued. Team that is always open to give advice or help. I could go on! I truly feel valued at the company and am always trained to improve and develop my skills.

      Cons

      Nothing to bad to say

      Pros

      - Great brand recognition, every client in fashion, retail and design know who WGSN is and highly respected - London office is WGSN core and at its best, unfortunately NY office is a sales office nothing inspiring or leading - Exposure to parent company Ascential, through annual meetings held in the UK. Many sister brands under umbrella, some brands having awesome culture

      Cons

      - Dysfunctional sales and account management teams - Managers are incompetent people with no management skills positioned in their seats to bully and micromanage people. You will learn nothing from them, you are better off working in food service you will be mentored more - You can get away with your erratic personality, unprofessionally loud voice in the office if you have a manager who likes you personally - In New York office, you will be greeted with people who think that this is a set for Devil Wears Prada, and believe they are on Anna Wintour inspiration level , but unfortunately it is a spin off and its on TLC and they are just wishy washy overly dressed call center supervisors. It is truly a reality show environment. Thats the quality of people and conversations you will be exposed to. I repeat, this is not like the London office, London office is real WGSN and people there are the nicest & humble you will ever meet! - At best, it will feel like you work for spectrum call center (not looking down, just trying hint this is not different than a center sales job in mechanics), as you are never taught or trained to be a consultative sales person. There is no training. No direction. You are just there to make phone calls. It is a “the louder you speak, the more calls you make,” type of place. - Your territory can define your sales or even what you are able to sell (some people can sell certain products, some cant) - First come first served. If you are joining a team to replace someone left, there is absolutely no way you can generate sales as all spots, opportunities and accounts already been taken by people who have been longer than you are with the company and there will never be a fair opportunity handling by your manager. You will be measured with people who have more opportunities given just because they were there before you. You will eventually be unsuccessful. - Goals are unrealistic. Especially if you are joining new. Forget about commission your first year. Consider yourself lucky if you can progress opportunities with also unjustifiably expensive product portfolio which clients cant afford - There is no HR in practice. It is a circus as management. You are left alone when there is mobbing, or unjust reporting line changes, if you are involuntarily moved between teams. You will be managed out because you ask for help or justice. Surprising how people don't get sued here for harassment or toxic workplace. Right? Because it never gets reported

      Pros

      Could be a decent, globally recognized opportunity if you're in the right department and have great managers.

      Cons

      Management is a crap shoot and, much of the time, unprofessional. They were wishy-washy and overwhelmed yet didn't take any responsibility. I couldn't even manage up since they kept changing their minds every 5 seconds. One thing didn't change...their bad attitude! They say things one minute then go back on their word. If you have a brain—RUN!
