Does not recommend
manager, New York, NY - January 15, 2016
Calypso has a Mission and Values statement that is posted in every store's stockroom. The problem is, the company does NOT treat their employees with the values they claim to embrace. Corporate culture is negative and disorganized. The company cannot make one decision and stick with it. There is a lack of respect for the employees in the retail locations. Operating a facility in reality is MUCH different from theory, and certainly from the "Ivory Tower" mentality, which is in place. Also, while touting themselves as a "Luxury Brand", the quality continues to plummet as the price does not. Cashmere is much thinner than it used to be and pills very easily, embellished garments are now garish vs. the sophisticated pieces they were in the past. The pay structure was recently changed for commissioned employees, making commission nearly impossible. This has resulted in a loss of valuable sales staff. A large portion of store's management has fled the company in the past 2 years due to lack of integrity within the company.
