    Not a wonderful environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou will work with some very nice people. The atmosphere isn't too terrible.

    ConsThe people at the top can be tough and ready to fire you if you rub them the wrong way. That's not a wonderful thing to have hanging over your head.

    This company is being run to the ground

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) North Bergen, NJ (US)

    ProsLots of perks. Sample sales, summer hours, 21 vacation days

    ConsUpper management is horrible at communicating when big changes take place. Employees find out most of the changes through press releases on the internet. They keep selling all the brands. I would be surprised if they are still in business in a year.

    Has seen its better days

    Store Manager (Former Employee) Harriman, NY (US)

    ProsThey had a great benefit package, although it would have been nice to have
    a pension out of it.

    ConsHas sold off so much of their brands acquired in the past that they have lost a great number of their customers, yet expect Mangers to convert by selling low quality "fashion".

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo late to offer advice for Liz. Looks like they will never get back that classic line, have lost their
    base of shoppers and instead cater to the teeny boppers by invbesting in all the kiddie lines....DKNY, Lucky, Juicy, Kensie....

    Glad to be out of there
