Approves of CEO

I have been working at Lands' End full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Very caring company, gives back to the community, fantastic activity center with free fitness classes. CEO is driving the company in the right direction. Great benefits, competitive salaries--esp considering this is basically a rural setting. GREAT people.

Cons

VERY large company, can be very difficult to move the cheese.
Has been misdirected, although getting back on course. Very unstructured company, especially considering the size. Owned and abused by Sears.

Advice to Management

Keep true to the heritage. Open more stores outside of Sears.

    I worked at Lands' End full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great group of talented people
    Management is open to hearing new ideas
    Workout facility
    Strong brand culture
    Summer Hours

    Cons

    Dodgeville is a tiny town in the middle of nowhere
    Commute from Madison gets to be far too long everyday
    No bonuses in the past few years
    Promotions are hard to come by unless you are a favorite
    Being owned by Sears has more negative effects then positive
    Many layers within the large company can make it hard to get things done

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on actual skill, not as a last minute retention method
    Get out of Sears and open free standing stores
