    I worked at Liz Claiborne full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They liked to promote from within, women had the same chances as men for promotion. If you worked hard, you didn't need to ask for a raise or promotion.

    Cons

    During the last years there, Senior management was poor and was forced to sell off divisions and eliminate entire departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should have been replaced many years ago but the CEO was kept on too long leading to the ultimate deterioration of a once great company.

    Doesn't Recommend

Liz Claiborne, a department store mainstay long accustomed to dressing middle-class women for success, is cleaning out its closet.
