    Pros

    great discounts on a variety of brands. opportunity to work at a variety of stores. opportunity to learn different aspects of the retail world.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is not respected and you are required to continually go above and beyond with no recognition for your efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Respect ALL levels of employees. Don't treat people as if they are dispensible. You gain loyalty by treating people with respect.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, flexible for mothers, good benefits. Decent discounts on products. Excellent legacy in apparel industry.

    Cons

    promotions and salary are arbitrary. No path for advancement. They thinned out much of the company over the past year without thinking about how lay offs would affect the operations first. You have to know people to get anything done. Poor communication between teams - people constantly ignore emails and phone calls from colleagues within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Stop wasting money on useless office redesigns and collateral.

    Pros

    They had a great benefit package, although it would have been nice to have a pension out of it.

    Cons

    Has sold off so much of their brands acquired in the past that they have lost a great number of their customers, yet expect Mangers to convert by selling low quality "fashion".

    Advice to Management

    Too late to offer advice for Liz. Looks like they will never get back that classic line, have lost their base of shoppers and instead cater to the teeny boppers by invbesting in all the kiddie lines....DKNY, Lucky, Juicy, Kensie.... Glad to be out of there

    Pros

    Lots of perks. Sample sales, summer hours, 21 vacation days

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible at communicating when big changes take place. Employees find out most of the changes through press releases on the internet. They keep selling all the brands. I would be surprised if they are still in business in a year.

    Pros

    You will work with some very nice people. The atmosphere isn't too terrible.

    Cons

    The people at the top can be tough and ready to fire you if you rub them the wrong way. That's not a wonderful thing to have hanging over your head.
