    Pros

    Great company culture. Outlet division has tons of potential for advancement. Retail has lots of opportunity for entry level management.

    Cons

    Scheduling is difficult, payroll is always tight.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a method to reward hard working, amazing associates with raises more frequently. Once a year for 15-35 cents an hour is not motivational.

    Pros

    Great Staff (middle management and below ) in Brand Head Quarters and Field, Nice Stores with good merchandise, good benefits -insurance,days off/vacation

    Cons

    Upper management not in loop with lower management and employees, lack of communication
    between them, employees not rewarded fairly the same people are constantly awarded

    Advice to Management

    At Brand Head Quarters the Upper management (Directors and above ) really makes no effort to know the employees under them and takes all information on them from their immediate Supervisor or Manager which in a lot of cases they don't get the full story.

    I worked at New York & Company part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great discount, great retail experience through hands-on encounters, flexible hours,

    Cons

    No opportunity to move up, lack of raises or small amount despite hard work, poor management, high employee turnover rate, no praise for accomplishments

    Advice to Management

    After working for this company for 3 years, and consistently surpassing sales goals etc, I was on the Up boarding program for management training, but didn't receive any adequate training despite my attempts at learning more managerial skills. I think that they should start really giving their employees the opportunity to move up in the company, especially if the worker is being proactive. That will build longevity amongst their workers.
