Pros

You get to work with the best people. If you are motivated to succeed, it is great to be surrounded by other like minded people.

Cons

Departments that drive revenue are treated much better than those that are cost centers. But, I expect you would find this in many places.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Culture has made a great shift in the last couple years - but sales have been good over that time too. I hope we can keep the great culture if sales slow down (but i hope we don't have to find out).

    Pros

    My time with the company was during a lot of growth and development. Many people were promoted and a lot of focus was put on developing teams to the next level.

    Cons

    I felt that during the recession things were difficult every where however it seemed as though the value of the employees really became non existent and it became a matter of watch your back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to truly caring about your people,

    I worked at L Brands full-time (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.
