    I have been working at Lacoste

    Pros

    Cool clothing, heritage brand, clothing allowance, discount, great learning experience, potential for growth, great sense of teamwork company wide, mostly reasonable deadlines

    Cons

    Reduced hours, reduced discount, no compensation for overtime, miscommunication throughout

    Advice to Management

    Compensate entry level positions (SA/ SS) better to help reduce turnover. The longer someone works for us, the more familiar they will be with our product. The more familiar they are with our product, the more confidence they will have in selling it. When stores are down in staff, be more understanding during deadlines.

    Pros

    The discount is amazing and you can float between locations.

    Cons

    The upper management was no stabl, and the core values of the company are not reflected in employee treatmen, No opportunity to grow, and there was never a balance between work and life outside of work because you were always working and barely able to take time off.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates and find better resolution options
