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

    Pros

    At Montreal office: really friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Workload fit into your day. No forced overtime. Great people. Too bad finance was transferred to corporate office and ultimately company bought by PVH. Wish I was still there.

    Cons

    My manager the last few years I was there was the biggest con. But at least I was not micro-managed so I didn't have to deal with him much. Yearly reviews were useless and counter-productive. Communication between managers could have been better.

    Pros

    Field locations are given independent decision making authority to satisfy customers. Corporate support is good and encourages questions from the field.

    Cons

    CEO doesn't practice what she preaches, always looking out for number one while pretending to care for the little guy.

    Advice to Management

    Provide feedback to the top when message is not resonating with the intended recipient. When in the field, interact with employees more to get candid feedback.

  6. No winder it was bought out by PVH

    Pros

    Great brands, lots of potential

    Cons

    Bad management and work atmosphere. All different brands were so isolated from each other and there was no team spirit. All workers including management talked about each other, it made it hard to build relationships and trust your colleagues. There was no monthly reviews or meetings at all with the head of different sectors, my senior said to me before "sure no one knows what they are doing, its about figuring it" when I asked for guidance on a project. There was also nowhere to move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate better. Build a better atmosphere so workers like coming into work. Stop talking about employees when others are in earshot. Organise regular meetings and assessments.

    Lack of firm leadership & direction

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