    Nightmarish at best

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Discount is 40%. But after a while, even that loses it's 'pro-ness'.

    Cons

    Terribly run corporate environment. No systems in place to run company smoothly. Things are dumped haphazardly to the minions who have to do 3-4 jobs at a time. Appreciation is non-existent and managers should be signed up for courses on how to motivate and run a team. Forget about asking to 'build a career' there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage and not yell at your team. Perhaps then people will not fear, but respect you.

    I really believe in our Global CEO and the vision that Victoria's Secret is one of the strongest retail brands today.

    Cons

    Constant changes in upper management lead to high turnover, especially amongst individual contributors. Lack of mentoriship and working towards promotions.
