It operates under a culture of fear and gaslighting, I have seen people get stress ulcers from the horrible work environment. I saw 18 people out of 27 people leave within a year. I' honestly feel like this workplace gives you PTSD. I have also seen HR complicit in the abuse in which they will lie or make up things even if you have proof otherwise in order to deny you. HR has also restructured the entire workforce 3 times in one year, and combined 2 jobs into one but not even give you a one cent raise. If you have ever wanted to know what it feels like to be in an abusive and toxic relationship, go work here. They are very racist and just utterly the worst parts of high school mean girls and worst parts of humanity combined. Imagine the type of 50-year old women who refer to high school interns as "skinterns". Imagine the pettiest women in the world and the most two faced women. That;s your coworkers. You get no support, no training and it is a culture where everyone seeks to screw you over. I have worked in so many places and I would honestly rather be stabbed than work here for one more day.Do not trust their two faced personalities. You will literally be constantly abused and back stabbed. STAY FAR FAR FAR AWAY

    Literally get rid of the entire HR staff and have a completely new company culture. It operates under a culture of fear and gaslighting, I have seen people get stress ulcers from the horrible work environment. I saw 18 people out of 27 people leave within a year. I' honestly feel like this workplace gives you PTSD. I have also seen HR complicit in the abuse in which they will lie or make up things even if you have proof otherwise in order to deny you.

Management was consistently unaware of how much time and effort goes into both daily and sporadic projects, which lead to inefficiencies throughout the organization. In addition, this greatly impacted their ability to judge how employees performed.

I have worked here for almost 3 years and I love it here. I know that some people don't believe they're treated fairly when it comes to promotion considerations, but my team has been nothing but supportive. In 3 years I've been promoted twice. Being the fashion industry, the company is probably 75/25 gender split, but in my department it's probably 90/10. While I have not gone on maternity leave, I have several friends who have. We get 3 months, but not all of it is paid.
