    Pros

    Beautiful product and showroom. They have very talented design and marketing teams. Would have preferred working in the marketing department.

    Cons

    Overworked and under appreciated. Environment is tough. If you are a new employee you are expected to sink or swim. Training is almost non-exsistent. Everyone is too busy being overworked than to help the transition of new people. Sales department is caddy, clicky and treat new people harshly. They have a mean-girl attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional and make an effort to train or help new employees. You are not creating a cure for cancer, lighten up and be nicer.

  3. I enjoyed working with and learning from the very friendly people at MGI.

    Pros

    It is a well known luxury brand with a long history. The people for the most part are very nice and helpful. Got to work on a daily basis improving my skill set and gaining experience.

    Cons

    Top level management can sometimes be narrow sighted and not trust the opinions of those who work under them.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your employees to push the limits on design and Manufacturability. Don't settle for mediocracy, occasionally take risk.

    Pros

    Nice people to work with

    Cons

    No defined goals of expectations. You pretty much just do random work.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a training scheme for intern that goes beyond excel spreadsheets.

    Pros

    Great sale and discounts on watches
    good people

    Cons

    - The PDPM dept doesn't have a vision direction or a set plan. This dept doesn't know how to say no or confront difficult people.

    - Lack of transparency and clear communication all the way from dept lead to directors to managers to jr managers to coordinators.

    - Lack of motivation to work hard because there is no fair reward system.
    You could be here for 20 years and still be making half the amount of money to your peer who has been here less than a year
    - Here is another eg - you can join as a manager and within a span of 2 years become a director and and then VP just because you had the backing of a sr executive. You could be leading a team of 20+ with no real experience of leader mainly because your brown nosing skills

    Things just don't make sense when it comes to promoting someone or compensating.

    - lack of clear objectives and direction within this dept. real issues don't get bubbled outside the dept to executive mgmt. Mostly because this dept is controlled and indirectly managed by the leaders in design. So things are steeped under the rug.

    - there are some strong workers in this dept but the mani issues stem from lack of LEADERSHIP in the dept. This dept lacks seasoned and professional leadership.

    - this dept is very much influenced and indirectly controlled by the leaders in design. There is a lot of "ill treatment " and "yelling" to the point where many have left the company.

    - we need a strong sensible and seasoned dept lead who doesn't dance to the tunes of design or brand. Someone who is bold to back up this dept and stand behind the team. Someone who is supportive objective and a true leader.

    Advice to Management

    The performance of the leadership of this department needs to be questioned given the state of this dept.
