I have been working at L Brands full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

My time with the company was during a lot of growth and development. Many people were promoted and a lot of focus was put on developing teams to the next level.

Cons

I felt that during the recession things were difficult every where however it seemed as though the value of the employees really became non existent and it became a matter of watch your back.

Advice to Management

Go back to truly caring about your people,

    I worked at L Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some great coworkers. The workload is not heavy, but not terrible. They offer flexible hours. Not a total cookie-cutter work environment; they'll let you be flexible with cross-functional partners to make workflow smoother. Benefits are pretty good, the 401k match is better than a lot of companies, but not amazing.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of politics. Some of the high-level management can play favorites more severely than I've ever seen (if they love you, you can do no wrong; if they don't like you, they'll make your worklife miserable until you quit). I left for a better offer elsewhere, but I lost a lot of great coworkers due to upper-level mind games.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to which of your departments heads play favorites too heavily and rein them in. If people under a specific head keep leaving, look into why that's happening and fix it.
