Company has gone from amazing to AWFUL in 2 years
Menswear Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 29, 2015
Oversaw mens department. Up until management change, there was a lot of freedom, respect and advancement. Under this stlye of management, the company did well. When management changed, culture shifted to a negative, non-cohesive, and favoritism oriented environment. Sales slumped significantly shortly thereafter.
Human resources is not qualified to be a part of such a huge company and causes more problems with the staff than they solve.
Compensation used to be highly competitive but as management is no longer capable of driving sales, the focus has become cutting costs. They achieve this by promoting within people who are widely under-experienced but are the typical "Yes-men" (and women).
The experience there can be summarized in a recently promoted corporate employee who stated to his audience "I do not want to hear negative feedback. Everything I tell you is right."
Terrible upper management in USA, pay and resource cuts, unprofessional environment focusing on who the Director favors (for ALWAYS QUESTIONABLE reasons), not who can do what's best for the company.
