    I have been working at L Brands

    Pros

    Flexible, I worked while taking classes and they were always willing to accommodate my schedule.

    Cons

    It was retail and at a not so nice location.

  2. Not the type of culture I enjoyed. If you want to be stuck in high school cliques then maybe this is the place for you.

    I worked at L Brands as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The perks are great: the thing I miss the most is the discount and employee sales. They also had Starbucks in some of their offices which was nice.

    Cons

    People are too busy to make time to help you on projects, and a lot of my projects got cut because there was not enough people to get them going.

  3. You will always be nervous about the next round of cuts

    Pros

    Great benefits, I met some very nice & talented people, the work was interesting & challenging

    Cons

    You need to brown-nose in order to advance, you need to drink the kook-aid in order to advance, so many people in upper management positions have worked here and NOWHERE else, so there is no other experience to draw from. There is no individuality. HR is useless.

    Advice to Management

    I would give advice, but nobody listens.

    Cons

    No benefits as part time associate, horrible, inconsistent hours.

    More competitive pay for seasoned employees. More internal growth vs outside hires.

  9. Strong establishment with room for growth.

    I worked at L Brands

    Pros

    The company has solid interdepartmental structure and hires people to grow with the company. I was here when they were seeking to branch off one of their departments on its own, so there was a lot of restructuring, growth, and development. There was also a pretty healthy workplace culture considering its position in the retail and fashion industry.

    Cons

    Limited feedback loops, due to large size. Sometimes there are gaps in communication in what needs to be done from the higher ups, but this may be due to lack of people there to help others onboard with technical and logistical resources. When a member lags, it causes bottlenecking of other processes (but this is a problem many larger establishments face).

  10. It Can Be a Good Place to Work

    In my department there isn't much of a chance for advancement.
