    This was my first job after I graduated from college. It was a great training ground for the fashion industry,

    I worked at Liz Claiborne full-time

    Pros

    Excellent industry training. Many places to move within the company. Strong business relationships. Bought new, exciting brands like Juicy Couture into the mix. Sample sales!

    Cons

    Brand became watered- down. Too many Liz-brands that didn't differentiate enough from each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The LIZ brand is still powerful but there is a strong need to redefine it or re-invent it for today's market.

    great when I started...went downhill when Paul Charron left! and changing the name to Fifth & Pacific won't save them!

    I worked at Liz Claiborne full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    great people, benefits, opportunities and just plain fun to go to work - at least at the time!

    Cons

    politics, HR BS, narrow vision within the company...but they did provide excellent international job growth opportunities...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    what made you think outsourcing would be, in the longterm, a cost savings? you ended up, for all intents and purposes, re-instituting DBA 'services' back in-house...thanks! HR (at least at that time) couldn't be trusted...one (or more) generalists left because they refused to be a part of the BS...and as with a lot of private sector companies - you played shell games with employees' job/job ...futures...AND got away with it
