I have been working at Lands' End as an intern

Pros

The people were great and I was given clear direction and support to reach my goals. The health center and cafeteria are top notch. They are also working hard to make the office a sustainable environment.

Cons

Long-term prospects are stated in an unclear fashion. Dodgeville is a little far from Madison at about 45 minute drive. The company is controlled by Sears, which leaves a sense of uncertainty in its future.

    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.
