      Pros

      The company is a very structured "family" business, with a lot of experienced staff going in and out and distinguished prestige behind the name. It is a great transition point for anyone looking to forward their career in retail or luxury sales. Base pay is on-par with the direct competitors. Responsibilities given to you are plentiful, and if you're looking to gain experience then well recommended.

      Cons

      Middle management has been a revolving door over the years, with a culture of blame-shifting negative results leading to little responsibility being accepted by higher-up decision making. A lot of nepotism involved behind the scenes, particularly with upper-management positions and promotions. As a Sales Associate, you very much feel like another ID number for the company and this can lead to resentment. Italian bias is heavy (better brush up on it) and deplorable sales practices occur which competitors wouldn't allow. Benefits are extremely lackluster. In-store middle-management tends to have questionable communication/people skills leaving lower-level staff feeling patronized and disrespected. Rule enforcement tends to be on a convenience basis. Promotions are rare, with the company adopting a policy of "ask or you don't get". Once you do ask, it's typically met with excuses each time.

      Pros

      Most people of the team are good player and they support each other The salary here is much higher compared to other fashion companies

      Cons

      There is a clear reason if the same “ cons” have been reiterated over and over here on Glassdoor : because they are all true. From the moment you start working at Prada you will only be seen as a number by Senior Management. They will never support you, however they have been put in place only because they know by hearth the obsolete strict rules dictated by the Italian HQ which, most of the times, do no make sense or could have if we were still in 1995. HR team has not clue that their job should be to actually support their Human Resources , instead they showcase no empathy , complete lack of judgement and absolutely no work ethic, I have honestly never encountered people with so little values and professionalism. Advice to people out there considering a job here : AVOID at all cost!!! You will not learn anything and your voice will not be heard ( in fact you will regress by being forced to adopt and follow antiquate rules )
