Pros

It's an education with a cutting edge company that is willing to change course when needed to be successful! I worked for Macy's for 18 years and Limited Brands reminds me of my early years in retail when four years with Macy's was considered the equivalent of an MBA by Forbes Magazine.

Cons

Too many floorsets, you are always in a planning mode. It can be challenging trying to find time to develop your team. There needs to be more level set between districts. Some District Managers want to micro-manage every detail of your store while others give you the freedom to be a shopkeeper which is the way the business is suppose to be driven.

Advice to Management

Balance the newness process with the human element. Planning all the time keeps you in crisis mode. Deliver goods in a timely manner, make the manufacturers, shippers and buyers accountable for timely delivery of goods to the stores for floorsets and promotions.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Values of the company are great and everybody works there as a team. There is a good balance between work and personal life (however, it seems to be more true for Bath & Body than it is for Victoria's Secret). Individuals are always willing to help each other, advice and explain, and top management is always accessible.

    Cons

    Not sure about long term career opportunity. There are definitely possiblities to move horizontally amongst business units and function. It is also very possible to move from one brand to another (VS to Bath and Body....). The company is sometimes still run like a family business.

    Advice to Management

    Improve career management.


  2. If you want to just show up and get a paycheck this is your company.

    Pros

    Fairly good benefits, laid back work environment (if thats what you enjoy) and management seems to treat employees fairly.

    Cons

    Work environment is to casual/laidback at times. Management tends to let people underperform. Serious lack of recognition. Pay is below the average for similar positions.

    Advice to Management

    eliminiate some middle management
