  1.  

    Strong establishment with room for growth.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at L Brands

    Pros

    The company has solid interdepartmental structure and hires people to grow with the company. I was here when they were seeking to branch off one of their departments on its own, so there was a lot of restructuring, growth, and development. There was also a pretty healthy workplace culture considering its position in the retail and fashion industry.

    Cons

    Limited feedback loops, due to large size. Sometimes there are gaps in communication in what needs to be done from the higher ups, but this may be due to lack of people there to help others onboard with technical and logistical resources. When a member lags, it causes bottlenecking of other processes (but this is a problem many larger establishments face).
