    Pros

    The internship program at LF is very strong - it is engaging, challenging, and mentoring. You learn a lot and get a good sense of what working there would feel like. You also have a group project and various group events with other interns, allowing you to make friendships and connections.

    Cons

    Working at LF is not exactly the most glamorous; you aren't attending fashion shows or photo shoots, and may not even attend the meetings for which you are designing.

    I have been working at LF USA full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.
