    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Desigual full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Strong control over projects, great coworkers, relaxed and fun work environment. "La Vida es Chula" is very strongly emphasized in the workplace.

    Cons

    No structure and poorly planned operations. Desigual wants to do everything as a free-for-all and does not have a strong business mentality in the United States. The company has faired poorly here and resolves this with layoffs, which then results in other employees being over-loaded with too much work. They want to operate solely out of Barcelona, but cannot put enough care into the projects that they want to grow in the US. The pay is also low for the expectations placed on the employees. As someone who put a huge amount of personal investment into her job, please take my advice and choose a company with better structure and more security.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Desigual full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of freedom, fun environment. Uniform options for associates and management. Decent discount. The managers and associates were really great to work with.

    Cons

    No structure. Often felt ignored or completely forgotten by corporate. Visual standards were non existent because of the sheer volume of product and the lack of places to put it. Management was unable to get things done in a timely fashion due to not having any office space. No commission to make up for the low pay. Training was made up by management from previous experience - the company provided nothing to go on. Salary and benefits were mediocre at best.

    I have been working at Desigual part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    free uniforms with each season, great discount, fun work environment, commission, average salary, ALOT of room for growth

    Cons

    the company is from Spain and is fairly new to the U.S so they don't recognize certain holidays which mean if you work a holiday they don't pay time and a half like many other retail jobs. since its new they are still perfecting management. it is not perfect.
