  1. "Good Overall Experience"

    Pros

    Overall a great culture and work life balance. Casual dress code, easy going staff. Good opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Need to work on acquiring better talent. Average age of employees is easily in the 50's. Many people are technologically inept.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit better talent straight out of college. There are many "lifers" who are just there to collect a paycheck and go home. Need more people who are looking for growth.

    I worked at Warnaco Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    CEO (JG) tenure was as a leader - motivator

    Cons

    Directionless toward the end of life as a public company

    I worked at Warnaco Group full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Travel was about 10%, and all to desirable place across Asia, Europe, and coast of the United States of America.

    Cons

    Company was cutting costs agressively, and therefore resourcing to execute job function was challenging at best trying to get this to 20 words.

    Advice to Management

    Bring the company back into existence. PVH is a dinosaur, and I lament the fact that good old Warnaco was acquired.

    I worked at Warnaco Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Over 20 years walking through those doors to my other family. Warnaco worked hard to give a great atmosphere to their employees. High Level employee's were not afraid to get their hands dirty and dig in the trenches along side anyone. Great work/life balance and awesome people to work with. Teams within departments worked with teams in other departments for one common goal. HR department consistently worked hard at coming up with new incentives/fun activities and better benifits. Sad that they made the decision to sell.

    Cons

    There of course are always cons, but really not big enough to input here. The cons would be relevant to the person and/or situation.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give. Company no longer exist. I will say, 95% of Management was always available, always knew your name, most knew the value you gave to the company.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Great Benefits, pay and opportunity for advancement. Was a great time in my career, best move I ever made.

    Cons

    Company acquired by a competitor, many people lost their jobs, local office shut down. Wish it could have lasted longer.

    Advice to Management

    Very approachable, people could approach the CEO no matter what level they were and many were known by name. Fairly big company with a small company feel

    Instead of selling the company to PVH they should have grown the company through acquisition(s).
