I have been working at L Brands

Pros

Good discount, I personally work with a great manager, big company, internal cafeteria

Cons

People are so gossipy and it feels like high school. Everyone's talking about everyone and complaining about their jobs etc. True, Upper Level Management doesn't seem to know what they're doing though they're getting paid the big bucks, while the rest of us are carrying all the weight on our shoulders.

So hope you like sucking up, cause you're going to have to do a lot of that.

    Pros

    great pay, great bonus structure, good on your resume, but it will be pure combat.

    Cons

    horrible culture all around. they say one thing and do another. they expect you to work 60-80hrs a week. You get pressure from one sr. leader, then told do another by some other sr. leader. don't ask for clarification or go to HR- they will mob you, pressure you and not support you. I have seen MANY talented people leave due to the pressure, stress. My advice - do not be a hero- do not go expecting to make a big difference, just tow the line, get by, do nothing extraordinary. You'll be fine.

    Pros

    Great people to work with; very progressive HR programs and talent management approaches.

    Cons

    Some senior leaders berated other senior leaders publicly at key meetings in a very belitteling way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue your culture change efforts; hold all senior leaders accountable.
