I worked at La Senza full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Creativity is encouraged, good compensation and bonus plan, most managers are flexible about taking time off. Brand is owned by L Brands (Limited Brands) and corporation offers many benefits from great 401K plan and employee training to decent cafeteria and fitness classes.

Cons

Specific to La Senza (not other L Brands companies), much of middle management is promoted before they are ready/mature enough to handle their new position. This results in mismanaged teams, preferential treatment, overworked and frustrated team members and cattiness. Cadence is unorganized and chaotic. There is also definite problems in lack of communication and micro-management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management needs to address the bigger issues plaguing the various teams including those listed in cons instead of hiding the problems behind give-aways and treats.

Info about the company is out of date. La Senza is now owned by L Brands and headquartered in Columbus, Oh. Brand president is Michele Cloutier. Ms. Nemeroff is longer with the company.

    Cons

    After Alshaya bought us in 2012 everything went downhill. All our hours got cut some girls from 40 hours pw to 24...shifts got shortened so you would be In 4 or 5 days doing 4 hour shifts instead of in 3 days doing 9 hour shift, infact alot of the time you were in doing 6 hour shifts and no break at all.No incentives and reduced our staff discount..I could go on and on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gice a little back to your staff and it would pay dividends instead of of expecting everyone to drop everything, work their backside off and what for ...Nothing! Total disregard to peoples work/family life balance, Hr are so cheeky and snooty while also incompetent at their job! Alshaya ....La Senza UK have now ceased to trade so you didnt exactly do a good job of making a comeback for us ha
