    I worked at Liz Claiborne full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a larger company the benefits were good and the employee discount at the various brands was helpful.

    Cons

    During my tenure the company was sold off piece by piece and employees were expected to work knowing layoffs could happen at any time. And they did, regularly.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Liz Claiborne full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They liked to promote from within, women had the same chances as men for promotion. If you worked hard, you didn't need to ask for a raise or promotion.

    Cons

    During the last years there, Senior management was poor and was forced to sell off divisions and eliminate entire departments.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should have been replaced many years ago but the CEO was kept on too long leading to the ultimate deterioration of a once great company.


  7. It could've been better

    I worked at Liz Claiborne full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good pay, vacation, sick days, flexible, great training, very good at the store level, but higher ups in the company thought of themselves first.

    Cons

    company sold out to JC Penny's, poor management of the company by the president tried to target a new customer instead of focusing on the existing ones.

    Advice to Management

    should have stuck with what they were doing for the original Liz Claiborne brand and not changed to Isaac Mizrahi he ruined the brand most of the things he designed were very very ugly!
