Disapproves of CEO

Pros

workforce is vibrant and fashionable. Dress code is casual and sample sales are excellent. Many talented people culture is not overly cut throat many people are willing to share knowledge and help you grow. Having a gym and cafeteria on site is great. Very family friendly, no one looks down on you for having a family and they allow you time to be with them. Vacation package is very generous.

Cons

There are a lot of inviduals in c level management that are complete idiots, shame really. CEO seems to be at loss for how to turn company around and just keeps shedding brands. Divisional associates that do not work for upper managements "pet" brands get little to no company wide recognition. Juicy, lucky, kate ENOUGH! There are other brands in the portfolio recognize them. Also constant layoffs have left many people on edge and overworked.

Advice to Management

Company should implement peer based review process so associates can get recognition for accomplishments that management may not always be aware of. Also if subordinates were allowed to review their superiors it would help them identify faults within their own management styles and also weed out some of these management duds that have the gift of gab and not much else.

    Pros

    The people are really nice and easygoing. I barely had to stay late - basically 9-5 job.

    Cons

    There's way too much gossip and drama (but then again, most companies are like this). Also, the work is too relaxed. Everyone spends a lot of time chit chatting rather than doing actual work.

    Advice to Management

    During my time, I've seen many people come and go. I really wish Liz Claiborne retained those who actually provided their time and effort in the company.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They had a great benefit package, although it would have been nice to have
    a pension out of it.

    Cons

    Has sold off so much of their brands acquired in the past that they have lost a great number of their customers, yet expect Mangers to convert by selling low quality "fashion".

    Advice to Management

    Too late to offer advice for Liz. Looks like they will never get back that classic line, have lost their
    base of shoppers and instead cater to the teeny boppers by invbesting in all the kiddie lines....DKNY, Lucky, Juicy, Kensie....

    Glad to be out of there
