Pros

Ability to make an impact for the company and learn from an industry leader. Lots of ownership of tasks and jobs, able to make job into what you will. Good Experience and looks great on the resume. Some departments are very laid back. Company allows for half day fridays over the summer.

Cons

Not very many full time opportunities available. Limited entry level positions available. Some employees tend to get overworked and there isn't always a fair distribution of the workload. Salaries also do not seem to start off very high for right out of college. Currently no bonus scale in place.

Advice to Management

Allow more cross department opportunities.

    Pros

    Limitedbrands pays very well. Most of the people I worked with were excellent and I count many as close friends.

    Cons

    Senior Leadership brought in to the technology area in the last 5 years were some of the most incompetent people I have ever worked with. They repeated ignored highly experienced analysts and managers in favor of consultants they brought in and then blamed the legacy teams for trying to derail their projects. Then they were surprised when the business rejected their changes and when processes failed to support the business.

    Advice to Management

    The consulting model is a good theory but must be modified for internal staff

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and perks, great people with like minded goals, excellent brands on top of game in the industry. fast and fun and fabulous people. Very open minded, very gay friendly, very equal opportunity.

    Cons

    no work life balance at all. little to no top down communication. little regard for people's time away from work. Virtually no kind of work endorsed social interaction. Direction from senior management is often unclear and rarely trickles down to the people that execute directives.

    Advice to Management

    don't make busy work for the sake of keeping people busy. working a 45 hour week is not SLOW, it's industry standard and normal. crazy making doesn't equal creative.
