    Pros

    Great internship, was able to get a well-rounded view of the entire company. I was able to work in my own department as well as work on an intern project which we then presented to the CEO and President.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a downside but it has a very distinct company culture. If you don't fit, you don't fit. Make sure it's a company that works well with your lifestyle and personality!

    Pros

    Great Company; dedicated individuals.

    Cons

    Losing focus on long-established customer base.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify staff; too heavily weighted by the "young and dumb" set.

    Pros

    fun working environment! Great discount on the clothes and most coworkers are very friendly

    Cons

    Okay management. Lots of politics around hiring and promotions. A bit of an immature attitude toward the advancement and innovation

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what you want in your employees. Encourage store managers to promote team work.

    Great environment, upbeat, nice people who are good to work with. Good time off, very understanding of scheduling and outside lives.

    Staff can be cliquey at times, difficult to work with occasionally but for the most part it's a good crew.

    Pros

    The discount is great and if your a true "Lilly Girl" then you will love being around customers who share in the same excitement about the brand.

    Cons

    Some store managers are absolutely wonderful and others are absolutely horrible- making the experience and job horrific. Weekends are precious to a lot of people and being unfair and not open minded about days off is simply unfair. Some managers are it willing to work with their employees, but when you get a manager that is not willing, it makes it almost intolerable. Lilly is a great brand but there is so much drama all the time and upper management just simply doesn't care that you are unhappy. I had to leave Lilly due to not being listened to and feeling like I was extremely over worked and under paid with a manager who was not willing to give, but always asking more. I loved Lilly, but sadly the manger ruined it for me. I have heard this a lot....it's not just me.

    Advice to Management

    Be very cautious of who you hire and who you fire. It's so extremely sad to see the type of people who are hired just for a paycheck when so many people would love to be working at Lilly. It's such an amazing brand but it is being ruined by management and district managers who do not listen to their employees which untimely forces the goods ones to leave. I understand it's retail and turnover is a bit higher, but people who love the brand would stick around forever if treated fairly and unfortunely they are not. Please understand that someone's job should be their life. They should love to go to work, but if you aren't giving them flexibility, then everyone will be unhappy. They also need to know that if employees were once performing and then stopped that there may be a problem and their spirit may be crushed by the upper management.

    Pros

    Discount, short shifts, low hours. Semi- flexible. Being around Lilly clothing and the brand just pure joy

    Cons

    I believe that they shouldn't play mean girls. The best employees quit over time. The hard workers who were passionate for the brand left. It should simply be the other way around. They don't have many full time positions at all.


  11. A wonderful place to work!

    Pros

    Everyone I worked with was so wonderful and always very patient when learning the ropes of the new job. A great, positive environment to work in.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons about working at Lilly. It is one of the best places I have ever worked.
