    I have been working at Gucci full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay/benefits package is good when store targets are exceeded but falls behind competitors when it's not.
    If you're really good then the company may grant the opportunity to go to Italy for additional training and product knowledge.

    Cons

    Very negative atmosphere and morale within the store.
    Chances to progress without speaking Italian are very low.
    High disparity in pay among staff made worse by commission scheme being based on a percentage of gross monthly salary.
    Loyalty is not rewarded - salaries of new staff are higher than long term employees and not increased unless threatened with resignation.
    Staff Rota is managed appallingly. Frequently either too many staff are scheduled to work the same shift rather than spread through the day or there are not enough staff scheduled to work at all.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out the pay gap!

    I worked at Gucci (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company is really solid and has an mazing creative direction. Huge retail distribution that allowed me to deal with different sides of the business.

    Cons

    Structure of the company is too rigid and as a regional VM left little space to my creative contribution in the implementation of guide lines stemmed from corporate. Also, on a personal/professional level, I had different views and way of operating in respect of my line manager.

    Advice to Management

    Involve more regional VM managers in the creative flow. Be more constructive in criticism offered to managers performance.
