An excellent company to work for that lacked solid leadership.
Vice President, Director (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 6, 2017
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. I worked with the most amazingly talented people in the industry. Unfortunately, top management was only interested in making business decisions that benefitted their bonuses and personal investments at the expense of the company.

Office Administrator/Receptionist (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 11, 2016

Very productive environment with more than 200 rooms with fantastic materials
Archivist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 23, 2015
The hardest part of the job was finishing 350 tasks before the week ends. My co-workers were intelligent, helpful workers. I learned that working is not all about the earnings, salary, etc., by the end of the week, it's about how much you put your effort into it and care to actually enjoy it and adapt to a new experience. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting celebrities like Jennifer Hudson and Kerry Washington.
Pros
Free Lunches, Creative new ideas
Cons
Sitting all day on a computer, one break

Mslo
Production Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 17, 2015
MSLO is a decent company to work for. The location is difficult to get to and not convenient for running errands or going to doctor's appointments.

The benefits are good and include vision. The work environment is sometimes difficult because there are no cubicles.

That said, it's as good a place to work as any.
Pros
vision insurance
Cons

Dream Job Turned Into Nightmare
Product Manager, Martha Stewart Collection (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 4, 2013
When I joined the company, the teams were focused and everyone was aligned to the brand. By the time my position was eliminated, Patsy Pollack entered the picture and destroyed the department. It's a great place to work to say you've worked there and get it on your resume, but don't sign up thinking you will stay there for any length of time.
Pros
Great brand.
Cons
Management lacks focus, treats employees like cattle. Patsy Pollack is a nightmare to work for.
