Horrible culture
Associate (Current Employee) –  Rochelle Park, NJMay 24, 2019
Terrible work life balance. Expectations of getting more done with less people is unrealistic, with legacy software and technology. The only way to get things done effectively and efficiently is through team work and cross functional partnerships none of which can be found at Avenue. This culture starts with the leadership team and has trickled down to the associates. What used to be a great place to work has become toxic. Very sad.
Pros
Summer fridays

New leadership at Avenue has made a positive impact on the business. They have implemented structure, reporting, and continuing to invest in the company. Culture is collaborative and fast-paced so you need to come with a great attitude and a will to work!

great atmosphere but poor management and lack of upward mobility
undisclosed (Current Employee) –  Rochelle Park, NJJanuary 14, 2018
Pros:
Avenue is a good place to work as far as flexibility and atmosphere. They are great about working with your schedule if you have to pick up kids or have other responsibilities. Great for moms/parents.
The teams can be really nice and everyone is very pleasant and conversational.
The atmosphere is nice because it's very casual and comfortable.
Very patient with staff and very rarely fire based on poor performance.
Good paid time off; about 20 days to start.

Cons:
The company is not really doing well so there are always layoff risks. It is tough, if not impossible, to get a promotion and even if you do it doesn't usually come with a raise.
Managers can be catty and gossipy and there is no repercussion for bad interpersonal behavior.
They routinely hire from outside instead of promoting from within.
No bonus, some years you don't get a raise.
Added a new brand and created a bigger workload without adding staff.
Although the daytime is generally flexible, some jobs have tight deadlines that require work at night and from home.
Not much planning, lots of quick turnarounds without much thought or care as to the process that would create higher quality merchandise or better shopping experience. just a "get it done quick and cheap" attitude.
Pay seems to be better elsewhere.

Nice and Friendly Atmosphere

Is a nice place to work, people are friendly, nice location, close to NY, and Mall.. There is a lot of hard working people here, trying to make Avenue survive.
But as a retail company , Avenue Stores LLC is facing market challenges , that's why no bonuses or promotions.
Pros
Sample Sales, employee discount
Cons
Number of stores closing, plans to get rid of mainframe

Productive workplace with opportunities to help grow a great fashion brand
Generalist (Current Employee) –  Rochelle Park, NJMarch 25, 2014
Avenue is a fast-paced, dynamic workplace for focused and industrious personalities. The management team is engaged and comes from a diverse pool of talents, backgrounds and skills. Working in the home office provides opportunities for exposure to many different, cross-functional aspects of a corporate specialty retail office. There are great people to work with at all levels of the organization.
