    Pros

    One of the best companies I've worked for. Great employee discount-40% everyday and once a month for a week, you get 50%. Great knowledge is provided but management team and district managers are very involved and give great insight.

    Cons

    Number 12 on the top 100 companies to work for, so no cons.

    Pros

    Great brand and customer service is number one. This company really cares about the customer and will do what ever it takes to maintain loyalty

    Cons

    District structure is poor and not organized. Company needs to care about employees as much as they care about the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Be more in tune to Store Managers opinion on day to day operations

    Pros

    I've been in retail over 20 years and this is by far the most rewarding job! This client is the best! She will keep you laughing and feeling like you've made a difference in the world everyday. The company celebrates all woman and it's a privilege to be part of something that is changing the way the world thinks.

    Cons

    Just the usual cons that go with the territory. Everyone in retail wants more payroll and quicker growth opportunities.....but much better than other retailers.

    Advice to Management

    It is inspiring to have worked side by side with the executive team and to see them clientele. This leadership team walks the walk! Continue to lead by example and talk to the associates in the field. You will learn from them.

    Pros

    They offered a Descent in-store discount offered to employees. Training was offered when new products or product lines were introduced to the store.

    Cons

    The company only offers benefits to full-time employees (40 hours per week), not to part-time. Yet they expect the part-time employees to work a maximum of 39 hours per week, thus avoiding the full-time status. I was also asked to work off the clock on several occasions to keep from reaching the weekly maximum.

    Advice to Management

    Additional benefits for all employees would boost moral and allow for a smaller turn-over rate from the lower level management and floor workers.

    Pros

    Almost every Lane Bryant I've worked at has great staff and a friendly manager. It's a fun atmosphere that promotes body image positivity

    Cons

    Difficult to move up when it comes to management. I've worked there for three years and I am very good at my job but I have yet been able to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees!! Especially when it comes to moving them up the ranks!
