Company skews heavily female in lower-ranking positions, more male in leadership roles (with few exceptions).

    No real paid maternity leave - paid weeks are through Short-Term Disability insurance through a 3rd party. Must take a full week of paid leave (vacation or sick leave) prior to STD pay kicking in.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Yes but be clear on your career goals and what it would take to get there. You would need to be willing to push HARD to get promoted over men in upper management.

Account Manager

January 1970

Jeanswear and Corporate are in the midst of a transition I believe. There are many people who have been at the company for years and are waiting out their time until they can claim their pension. There is a family type atmosphere because so many people have been at the company for so long. There is currently no parental leave policy in place and very few women in senior management. Lots of traditional attitudes and lots of older white men are in charge. Other VF coalitions and brands may have different atmospheres.

    The company (Jeanswear coalition and corporate) is sometimes flexible on a case by case basis but much more needs to be done. There are currently no allowances for working remotely, compressed work hours, or flexible work arrangements.

If you are a people pleaser, this is the place for you. If you are a person who wants to innovate, create change and move the company forward, this isn't the place. Most people are coasting toward retirement and doing the minimum.

Yes, as it's a 9-5 company, and since it's Fashion most people are women!

    I was the 1st person to call out to HR that they did not have the required pumping room at the office. They made a makeshift one at first, but now have a room dedicated for it.
