A company with an excellent top guy (Les), but the managers that report to him are clueless. I'm happy to be gone.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Columbus, OH

I have been working at Limited Brands

ProsWorking in the HQ was great. A bright cheery atmosphere. The cafeteria food was the bomb.

ConsWhere to start:
--Managers of departments get promoted to job clearly because of who they know, not what they know.
--Problems in departments are often covered up and hidden from Les - if he really knew or was allowed to know the inner workings of some of his departments, he'd go nuts.
--Having people in charge of millions of dollars and the don't have a college degree or even any relevant experience to do their job
--Firing those who speak up about procedures that have proven time and time just not to work.
--Allowing politics and well, politics to run rampant.

Advice to Senior ManagementPull your head out of the sand and find out what is really going on in your company. How many good people do you have to lose before you get it? How many class action matters do you have to duck before you get it? Promote and hire people with experience, not just because of who they knew/know.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
