    A little disorganized at first but getting better and better

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Montreal, QC

    ProsThis company offers great opportunities for creativity wether in desgin, marketing or others. We have fabulous people working here and some recent additions have brought meaningful improvements.

    ConsA bit disorganized. Policies are not always broadcasted and are not that easy to find so not all employees are aware. Members of management do not all walk the talk.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate, communicate, communicate. When you think everybody knows, think otherwise because your messages are not understood by all.

    great employer

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIt is fun, the upper management is great, HR is wonderful, the stores are beautiful and the clothing quality is very good. Customers are women with discerning taste and like to be loyal.

    Consyou are working with women of all ages and there is sometimes drama

    Advice to Senior Managementgreat job, try to incorporate more choices within clothing lines, more co-ordinating pieces, sometimes nothing really goes with anything else in the same collection, and it is hard to sell "outfits" or extra co-ordinating options to customers. if there were more "nuetral" pieces upselling would be easier and sales would be higher.

    Great place to work before the "breakup".

    Vice President (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsIndustry Leader. Smart and innovative. Believed in true partnerships. Invested in their people.Focused on the end consumer. Great brands. Great systems. Great infrastructure.

    ConsLike all public companies focused on the bottom line, end of quarter can be crazy. Had to do more with less before any other company ever uttered those words.Very process driven, you have to like that to do well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep focusing on the end consumer and you will win.
