    Pros

    The senior management teams seems to be pointing the companies in the right direction. Large organization with lots of jobs. Discount is good.

    Cons

    The company is very frugal. Middle management roles are often filled with people who may be good at their jobs but are not effective or motivating managers.

    Advice to Management

    Depending on the brand, function, and area there can often be significant disconnects between what senior management thinks/ wants and what is actually happening. Try to close that gap.

    Pros

    Great benefits. For the most part great environment & teams

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't have a true understanding of workload. I've seen too many valuable & dedicated employees leave because promotions take too long

    Pros

    The perks (benefits, company outings, discounts etc) are pretty great. Depending on the shift, you'll work with some great people too.

    Cons

    You'd better be content with the title you were hired for, because unless your superior really likes you, you will not be moving up no matter how hard you work. The culture leaves a lot to be desired in other aspects too. Providing a tax break is worth more than hard work, and management is pulled from recent college graduates.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to the Limited Way, instead of just barely giving it lip service. Honor the standards set forth in reviews for everyone, and develop talent in those who put forth honest effort.

    Pros

    Good health benefits, employee discount, fun place to work

    Cons

    Upper management, work-life balance, no growth in position

    Advice to Management

    Promote those who work hard and smart. Have seen many a few who get promoted who talk a lot, hang out with management guys after hours,f riends on facebook or even go out to smoke together.

    Pros

    The environment is very casual and inviting. L Brands plays a big part in the community and values people that contribute. The benefits are fantastic, including medical, dental, vision, and employee discount to retail stores. Mr. Wexner is very involved and is seen walking around the buildings. They value cross training and giving their front line/hourly associates room for growth.

    Cons

    They eliminate jobs quickly without notice or explanation. L Brands values inclusion, but I found that was not necessarily true. The corporate world is very political, if you are in a leadership role you must find a mentor and at times have to make decisions that are not morally correct. But, that is all a personal opinion and depends on an individuals ethics and morals.

    Pros

    A great company with a positive vibe, and really cares about its employees. This is a very intellectually challenging work environment but also has a great work-life balance. They often have fun team activities and events to promote team building and passion among employees.

    Cons

    Be careful who you work for. This can be a great environment, but the opinions and efforts of people in junior-level positions are not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Junior-level employees need more time & development conversations with those at the senior-level. Otherwise, they get no exposure, and those of the senior level can never get a realistic view of the VERY hard work being done.

    Pros

    It's a young, exciting, rewarding atmosphere! People were always there to support me and answer any questions I had.

    Cons

    The teams are not as warm and welcoming as I had hoped. As a new person to New York, I was hoping to go to happy hour with my coworkers and meet new friends at work, but that wasn't the case. When work ended, everyone went on their separate ways.

    Advice to Management

    My experience with HR was less than favorable. I had to hunt down my HR rep, and when we did have a meeting, she had to change it 3 times and then showed up late.
