Pros

Excellent benefits - but only for those who are hired in NY- if you work for one of the divisions in LA, you may not receive the same package.
In NY, 21 days of vacation out of the gate, frequent sample sales, matching 401K, good health insurance. Great group of people, many with long careers in the industry - good place to learn about the wholesale fashion business.
Some of my very best, challenging & productive work years were spent there - I'm proud to be an alumni.

Cons

Liz Claiborne was founded as a company with forward-thinking respect for its employees & the core of that has survived on the corporate level - however, its brands have increasing autonomy - not all of them share the same values. It's a shame.

Advice to Management

Liz Claiborne has a legacy of delivering to its accounts well made, innovative product in a timely fashion - its wholesale backbone & team of experienced professionals are a valuable resource.

    Pros

    If you want to learn about product development process this is a good place.

    Cons

    Not a focused company, constant changing of direction.

    Advice to Management

    If you downsize emplyees you should not ban them from being hired by other divisions of the company-that is disgraceful.

    Pros

    Lots of perks. Sample sales, summer hours, 21 vacation days

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible at communicating when big changes take place. Employees find out most of the changes through press releases on the internet. They keep selling all the brands. I would be surprised if they are still in business in a year.
