Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 3, 2018
Senior managers are incompetent and clueless about day to day operations. Systems are poorly thought out and need lots of work arounds to function. Old boy atmosphere where friends are favored over hard workers.
Change Management Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 24, 2018
I loved my role, loved the projects I was working on. However, management was horrible. The culture is beyond toxic. I went to sleep with a huge knot in my stomach every night and woke up with anxiety. I lasted 8 months there and happily left when I did. Got great work experience and I use it in my current job so I am thankful for that. But otherwise, be aware of who your future boss may be because the people of a company are everything.
Assistant, Import (Former Employee) – Plymouth Meeting, PA – September 21, 2018
The hours of work was the best I ever had, if you work hard there it doesn't pay off, management only gives you what you what you want to hear not the the truth and there are favors. The hardest part of the the job was trying to find out what was going on with the company, the most enjoyable part of the job was working with a great group of people.
Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 12, 2018
This company has potential to build brands and be a player in the accessory industry, but fails due to its larger focus on short term profit gains which are achieved at the expense of the brands. (ie selling off price and downgrading the quality and stature of the brand by building and offering moderate design at low costs targeting off price markets)

Don’t bother unless you get a real good salary from the beginning
Senior designer (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 14, 2018
This place at this moment is again restructuring, upper management is not communicating or does a good job to make ppl feel better about the uncertainty. They had a townhall for everyone to ask questions, but it was a room full of ppl that just received their reviews - almost everyone did not get any raises or what they were promised (the review period is in July- so you have to wait until then to see if you are getting a raise or not)
This company could be good if you are a manager and were able to negotiate a good salary, Bcs for the past few years no real raises were done or bonuses, and since you have to wait until July to figure it out makes it very hard for you to try to find something new. The people you will work with are great, but they can be the only reason you stay for so long.
Benefits are really good, the HR and upper management helping you to go to the next step of your career with a market competitive salary, they are worth it.
No openness, heavy workload, really long hours, uncertainty, no recognition, no reward for hard work
Processing lead (Former Employee) – Redlands, CA – July 12, 2018
People took advantage of management. There wasn’t any consequences for laziness. Hard workers weren’t acknowledged or rewarded for their duties except for more work from what the lazy people didn’t finish. Supervisors don’t do much and leave all the work for their leads then take the credit
No work life balance. Not enough pay. Little to no advancement
Laid back workplace, Management has open door policy and are helpful, great coworkers
Allocator (Current Employee) – Greensboro, NC – July 8, 2018
Great place to work. Health insurance is excellent and management is very "down to earth". Compensation is fair for position. Lots of perks including brand discounts. Recently half of company was sold and future is uncertain for my division.
Production Coordinator (Former Employee) – Plymouth Meeting, PA – May 14, 2018
GBG is not interested in the employee. They are interested in the bottom financial line. I learned about multiple facets of the corporate world because when I started there it was a privately held company that was bought out by a world wide public company.The people I worked with were great. It was the corporate people in NY that didn't seem to care about the employees that weren't in the NY office.
