Pros

A very professional retail company who pays very well and offers great bonus with benefit packages. The company is doing very well and it shows with the structure of the company.

Cons

To really move up in the company you must play the political game. Brown nosing is the best way to move up in the company and also networking helps.

    Pros

    Pay is well above average compared to other retailers.
    Payroll given to stores is actually adequate to run the business and accomplish tasks that are required.
    Incentive plan is for all employees, not just the management team.
    Amazing employee discount.
    Stores are not micro-managed by DM and RM.
    Benefits are great. This is the only retailer I have ever worked for that actually gives you sick days plus your vacation time.

    Cons

    There are very few downsides. My biggest complaint would have to be that the return policy needs to be re-vamped. Other than this, I have no complaints. I have worked at many major retialers including Victoria's Secret, Express, Eddie Bauer, Gap, and American Eagle and Coach is so much more employee friendly. Many of the managers and associates in my district have been with the company for years, and this is rare in retail. When you ask them why they have been with the company for so long, the answer is always "you will never find another retailer that takes care of its people like Coach does."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing..it is obviously working and you have some very satisfied employees. Don't get caught up in the "cookie cutter" way of running stores like Limited Brands has adopted. Just because something works in one store doesn't mean it will work everywhere.
