    Pros

    Discount, more advanced skills needed to be successful therefore helps to make you a better employee /manager. Good people.

    Cons

    Blurred company vision, lack of communication from top to bottom, weak training and developmental implementation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be leaders, not just operational managers. Know your business and be confident in the people you've hired to run it.

    I worked at Guess?

    Pros

    Where I was, 80% of the customers spoke another language, and it was invaluable to practice conversationally without having to leave the country; there were many employee appreciation days, 40% off most items, bonuses for working most holidays, there is a strong sense of brand pride, there were opportunities to be promoted

    Cons

    There are inconsiderate customers on a daily basis, you are required to work holidays, for a while transgender people were suspected as shoplifters and associates were supposed to "keep an eye" on them and I think that's ignorant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more lgbt friendly, have the product be made in the USA.

    Pros

    They have a food court… The frozen yogurt was a great perk.
    They have a gym. It's not that nice, but they do offer spin and yoga classes.

    Cons

    I guess it's kind of like a prison. They told us to walk quickly in the hallways so that they know we're always doing something. You get 3 breaks a day. 15 minutes between 9:45-10:15 (I think that was it), 1 hour between 12-2 and another 15 between 3-3:30. If you were caught on break outside one of those times you were put on a "list". If they schedule a meeting during that time, you're just SOL. I don't really take breaks at my current job, not even lunch, but that feeling of imprisonment will make you want to get out.

    I had constant job insecurity at Guess. It was one of the most stressful, depressing times during my life. Maybe I got stuck with a bad team, but I would highly suggest staying away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Properly train your employees. Create a happier, less fear-ridden work environment.
