I worked at L Brands full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Some great coworkers. The workload is not heavy, but not terrible. They offer flexible hours. Not a total cookie-cutter work environment; they'll let you be flexible with cross-functional partners to make workflow smoother. Benefits are pretty good, the 401k match is better than a lot of companies, but not amazing.

Cons

There can be a lot of politics. Some of the high-level management can play favorites more severely than I've ever seen (if they love you, you can do no wrong; if they don't like you, they'll make your worklife miserable until you quit). I left for a better offer elsewhere, but I lost a lot of great coworkers due to upper-level mind games.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to which of your departments heads play favorites too heavily and rein them in. If people under a specific head keep leaving, look into why that's happening and fix it.
