    Generally a good place to work if you are fast and frugal

    I have been working at L Brands full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Associate discount and free products are great. Work life balance is possible here. There are opportunities to move to other depts and categories. Management strives to hire and promote from within. That's said, it takes time to move up. This is a relationship based company and building relationships is important.Casual work Environment. Generally young hip group of people in individual contributor positions. Fashion and or beauty background is a must. Work hard play hard. Company holds appreciation events , charitable events and fun summer and winter events . Expanding globally which is exciting . Opportunities for training and development

    Cons

    Starting salary for entry level is not on par with other large companies.There has been some turnover in my dept and recent layoffs across the company which is scary. People who have been with the company for 10-15+ years have been laid off. A slap in the face for associates who remained loyal .
    We are always encouraged to be faster and more frugal than year before and it's challenging. We support the retailers so corporate doesn't close on Black Friday , Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve. Need to rotate days off with team. We don't close on snow days either.

Limited Brands is as much of a shopping-mall mainstay as food courts and teenagers.

Originally focused on apparel, Limited Brands sold its ailing Limited Stores and Express chains -- leaving the company free to focus on two core businesses: Victoria's Secret and BBW.
