    I worked at Liz Claiborne full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    As a larger company the benefits were good and the employee discount at the various brands was helpful.

    Cons

    During my tenure the company was sold off piece by piece and employees were expected to work knowing layoffs could happen at any time. And they did, regularly.

    It's hard to review such a large company since each division has its own pros and cons.

    I worked at Liz Claiborne full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have very decent and competitive benefits including unlimited sick days for corporate salaried employees. Competitive salaries and summer hours.

    Cons

    Since the day I started both of the divisions I was working for were poorly managed and losing money. They do not work on personal and career development at all. Because of that the managers are never reviewed by subordinates and are often unprofessional. HR was never pleasant to deal with, but I'm sure they are the same at every large corporation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Require corporate associates to anonymously and confidentially review their managers. Teach your corporate managers how to properly manage!
