    I have been working at L Brands full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits package and good starting vacation time.

    Cons

    They promote such a healthy culture through L Brands Way, yet few experience it. Favoritism is played, if one person doesn't like you, they are quick to get rid of you.

    Advice to Management

    Give people a chance, if the role isn't the right fit, try to help them find a new one, not oust them entirely.

    I worked at L Brands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    nice company overall to work in. people rotate out of jobs every 12-18 months. my department had very flexible schedules and people were able to work from home 1 or 2 days a week.

    Cons

    very low pay! I didn't like how my "total compensation" was 10K higher than my base salary giving someone the illusion that the company actually pays that much for you.

    I have been working at L Brands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Culture promotes community, curiosity, and giving-back. Great discount, benefits, cafeterias, and development. Diverse portfolio of companies that are all doing fairly well given the economy and competition of other retailers. Constantly changing to keep up with the customer and technology.

    Cons

    Like any retailer, it's a fast-paced company. Keeping up with changes (via the customer's desires and from Senior Level Management) can be tricky and time-consuming.
