    I worked at LF USA

    Pros

    Benefits are good, although many of the unique perks have slowly been taken away. The work environment is pleasant and most employees are really great to work with.

    Cons

    Corporate structure makes it difficult to get things done. Opportunity for advancement is limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to employees who are actually using the implemented systems daily to fix the problems and be more efficient.

    Pros

    Great intern program - very structured and a lot of fun outings in addition to hard work.

    I have been working at LF USA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only pros are the benefits that have changed in the 3 years I have been there

    Cons

    Where to start.. just seem to buy up any companies that they feel they need. Once acquired, layoffs start, no one is safe. If they buy a company that is not in New York, good luck, there will never be an upper management professional on site to manage the business. They put management in charge who know nothing about the business that they are brought in to manage. Most of the time, management is in NY and you will see them on site maybe once a month. Once the acquired business starts to fail, do to their total lack commitment to that company, they start to layoff employees and get ready to dissolve the company. I agree with a previous reviewer, no one even knows HR until they are ready to lay you off, then they are there with the severance packages. I have never worked for a worse company than this one

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP acquiring companies if you don't plan on bettering that company. Put people WHO KNOW how to run the acquired company in charge. They know the ins and outs of the company BETTER THAN YOU DO!

    Pros

    The environment is very friendly, relaxed atmosphere, you are generally allowed to be independent. Really good benefits and HR department. Annual company outing/holiday parties.

    Not much growth potential. Entry level salaries are pretty low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create room to grow for your employees with salary bumps and title upgrades.

    Pros

    NOTHING. THE BRANDS ARE GOING DOWN SO NOTHING TO REALLY MENTION HERE.

    Cons

    Business going down in a bad way is not the place you want to spend your future- horrible management - no room for growth - horrible work environment of back stabbing and cattiness - not supportive (unless you like cocaine that is) and definitive somewhere I would send my worst enemy not my best friend. DON"T BOTHER!! YOU WONT LEARN ANYTHING EXCPET WHAT NOT TO DO - MANAGEMENT IS LACKING ANY TALENT WHATSOEVER.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    WORST MANAGEMENT SKILLS I HAVE SEEN IN A CORP. WASTE OF SPACES!!!

    Pros

    Great benefits, we just started having to pay for insurance but costs are minimal compared to other companies. With tenure, vacation time is generous and salaries are competitive.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up in the company if you are not in the NY area or willing to move to the area. Also difficult to move into new roles as exposure to upper management is limited.
