I have been working at Liz Claiborne

Pros

I am working with one of the Liz Claiborne companies - Mexx Europe BV, CEO Jeff Fardell.
One of the best reasons to work for Mexx is the international experience.

Cons

One of the downsides of working with Mexx is the lack of communication from the parent company Liz Claiborne as well as from the executive level of Mexx Europe. Mexx has a lack of expertise in senior management and lacks the depth and knowledge needed in a multi-national work environment and culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Transparency for employees, come down from the ivory tower and walk the halls a bit

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

    Pros

    They liked to promote from within, women had the same chances as men for promotion. If you worked hard, you didn't need to ask for a raise or promotion.

    Cons

    During the last years there, Senior management was poor and was forced to sell off divisions and eliminate entire departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should have been replaced many years ago but the CEO was kept on too long leading to the ultimate deterioration of a once great company.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Liz Claiborne full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a larger company the benefits were good and the employee discount at the various brands was helpful.

    Cons

    During my tenure the company was sold off piece by piece and employees were expected to work knowing layoffs could happen at any time. And they did, regularly.
