    I have been working at Liz Claiborne

    Pros

    I am working with one of the Liz Claiborne companies - Mexx Europe BV, CEO Jeff Fardell.
    One of the best reasons to work for Mexx is the international experience.

    Cons

    One of the downsides of working with Mexx is the lack of communication from the parent company Liz Claiborne as well as from the executive level of Mexx Europe. Mexx has a lack of expertise in senior management and lacks the depth and knowledge needed in a multi-national work environment and culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency for employees, come down from the ivory tower and walk the halls a bit
