I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores full-time

Pros

This is a fast moving, never satisfied, constantly re-inventing itself type of company. If you're looking for a company where you can coast through an easy 9-5...this company isn't for you. If you're looking for a company that will constantly challenge you, constantly re-invent itself, and will teach you more than you ever expected...this is the right place.

Cons

As the company grows, the bureaucracy grows with it. The company has tried to do so much, that competing priorities (and leadership) is sometimes confusing for stores to prioritize.

Advice to Management

Ensure priorities and direction is aligned not only through the "company" messaging, but through all facets of leadership.

    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gratis!- free perfumes/lotions/etc samples so you can try the products you sell, plus a free bra (usually nude or black though) or only at $15 when its being promoted. Every now and then they also give them for free, depending on what it is. My managers were very enthusiastic and it was great to work there, it's a company where you learn a lot about intimates and the options so just the experience itself was worth it. As a woman it's great to get comfortable in your own skin & know the options you have and as a man it's a great benefit to know what to buy for a woman.

    Cons

    It can get catty since there are so many women working together but this depends on management. Also, I got this job through a friend who had been there for 3 years. He worked hard, tried to get a management position but it never happened. I, with 4 years of management experience didn't even get chosen as a supervisor- you really have to sell yourself in this company! It is slow in promoting within and sometimes the work environment feels very apathetic.

    Advice to Management

    Employ less people and give employees more hours.
