    Good starter job, you get to learn and grow. Don't stay long if you are looking to move up.

    I worked at Movado Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment, laid back atmosphere. Nobody will get in your face and pressure you with your work. Good mix of young and old crowd, access to the watch sales but it gets old after a while. You get to leave most of the time within your 8 hour work schedule. Started off as an Intern and hired full time. You get to learn as an intern and do actual real work. Unlike other internships, you get to learn and be prepared for future opportunities.

    Cons

    Underpaid and there is no real room for growth in IT. You are pretty much hired and stuck in the position you were hired for. Only good if you are comfortable and not hungry, there is also a lot of favoritism to the old-timers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees the average to what salary posting would pay based on Bergen County, or else they will leave. Phone system is still on an old Avaya system and not on VOIP. That's just as bad as a company still using Windows XP.

    I worked at Movado Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Meeting new people through sales,

    Cons

    Commission was not too good and base pay was too low. For commission you start off at 1% for every sale then goes up to 4% by the time you hit 350k for the year, but by then its December. January you start at 1% again. Even with being top sales person in company, you take home maybe 35k a year, hard to make a living on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No complaints.

    Pros

    Very interesting industry, nice products, reasonable pay, good working environment, good colleagues.

    Cons

    Still very much Mom & Pop HR management. They will hire you for your competences to do a job, but they will only offer a career to those who are part of what can be described as "the extended family",

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come on, enter the 21st century already, and give the dinosaurs some well earned R&R!

    Advance from within the company as opposed to hiring from the outside. This will give employees a sense of direction while working.
