Pros

Great place for entry level individuals to start, but not great growth potential from that point on.

    I worked at Liz Claiborne

    Pros

    Good work/life balance with the job I was in
    Great benefits for women
    Monthly clothing allowance
    Worked with some amazing women

    Cons

    Management didn't always listen to what customers were telling them
    Stock levels in department stores became overinflated due to the push to sell more - not sell what was appropriate to the size of the store

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back and look at what the product looks like in a store other than Macy's Herald Square

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Good for working mothers. Great vacation and summer hours too. Lots of sample sales. Some are able to get promoted quickly once they find their niche.

    Cons

    A lot of amazing people got downsized. So many women exec's once worked their magic there and now it's a boys club.
    Too much money is being paid to exec's making poor decisions that ended great brands and great account relationships.
    Morale is at an all time low and management has their head in the clouds.
    Loved the morning email announcements. Too bad I already heard the headlines on my commute in on the radio. Very considerate of you to let us know our brand is sold or discontinued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on your leadership skills and get some integrity. As reported in WWD Dec 08, the board of directors voted to give bonuses to maintain top talent. While in November 08 the top talent accidentally sent an email out to all employees noting no pay increase, no bonus. Its hard to have respect for that type of leadership.
