I have been working at Lands' End full-time

Pros

Full health facility, good work life balance. Great brand heritage and commitment to the customer. Commitment to product quality and the highest level of service.

Cons

Turnover in executive ranks has caused multiple shifts in strategy. Makes it hard to get traction in the business. Commute can be difficult to get used to if you live outside Dodgeville.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on execution of goals rather than if they are the right goals.

    I worked at Lands' End

    Pros

    Core group of people are committed, dedicated and truly care about the customer and other employees.

    Cons

    Sears ownership has increasingly had a negative impact on business and morale. Unrealistic financial goals leads to daily micro-management and unlimited promotions to move product. No bonuses even in a record profit year because bar was so high. Product has changed to be what LE designer's want to wear not what the customer wants. Benefits slowly declining to be "average" rather than a key selling point for working in remote area of Wisconsin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break away from Sears Holdings anyway possible to allow freedom to build the brand back to what it can/should be.

    I worked at Lands' End full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I loved their Fitness Center.

    Cons

    Too bad they didn't share the wealth in the year they had one of the best in the history of the company, now when business and the economy are struggling employees would understand the difficulty of getting a raise and a bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set realistic deadlines for IT projects and hire people if needed to get the work done in a timely manner.
