It's hard to review such a large company since each division has its own pros and cons.

I worked at Liz Claiborne full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

They have very decent and competitive benefits including unlimited sick days for corporate salaried employees. Competitive salaries and summer hours.

Cons

Since the day I started both of the divisions I was working for were poorly managed and losing money. They do not work on personal and career development at all. Because of that the managers are never reviewed by subordinates and are often unprofessional. HR was never pleasant to deal with, but I'm sure they are the same at every large corporation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Require corporate associates to anonymously and confidentially review their managers. Teach your corporate managers how to properly manage!

    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.
