    Great benefits & Good hours!

    I have been working at LF USA as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, Flexible schedule. You are able to see how other brands work, which can be productive when trying to solve issues.

    Cons

    Management has no clue how much time and effort goes into getting things organized. Therefore there never really is enough time to do things right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be considerate when weighing the options of doing something right and fast. GET ORGANIZED. Most importantly don't tell freelancers you will make them permanenent offers and have them wait for months.

    no product discounts (maybe in some departments), middle managers take credit for your work making it difficult to move up

    Give everyone an opportunity to interact with and impress upper management.

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

    Pros

    employee sample sales, some divisions within the company are awesome to work for and treat you like family, benefits were free but now we have to pay for it. learning tool,

    Cons

    Upper Management say one thing and do the other. Promise you things but never fulfill them. very difficult to move up, no employee discounts, if people don't understand the work they get a smaller account and the person who knows the work gets the double workload. The director treats people unfairly, unless you are good friends with the director then you move up and are treat different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get retrain in being a human being with feelings and how the company really works, ask the people who do the work for advice before changing the work load. appreciate the employee more
