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

    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Compensation package was fair
    Opportunities existed globally

    Cons

    Lack of firm leadership & direction
    Operated with the minimum making implementing improvements difficult

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    i got to learn some new work skills while i was at warnaco,got to know some really good hard working people at warnaco also.

    Cons

    there was never any down size at warnaco,because we all got along,there was one down size at warnaco and that was when we all lost our jobs.

    Advice to Management

    upper management was pretty good, because they were aways there for the employees when they needed any help with any issues.

    I worked at Warnaco Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In general, it was a pretty laid-back atmosphere. Most people were friendly and most executives were approachable. Employees, for the most part, were treated like people. Occasional "thank yous" like ice cream parties would pop up.

    Cons

    There seemed to be a disconnect between different divisions and departments. This was especially evident in the IT world. Collaboration overall could be much stronger. Fairly high turnover, especially in the design areas, would put a strain on resources and morale.

    Advice to Management

    Need to do more to keep talent, especially in the design areas as well as IT. This could be done by offering more competitive salaries and higher than insulting 2-4% annual raises.

    Pros

    Traditional corporate environment with good salaries, benefits & profit sharing.

    Cons

    Once you hit the glass ceiling - that's it. I was hard pressed to find challenges in my role after a few years & there was a lot of re-structuring in design department on an on-going bases.

    Advice to Management

    If there are no way to promote a designer, they should be allowed to switch categories to allow for new skill development & freshness in the product line (ie...knits designer & bottoms designer switch positions).
