    I worked at L Brands full-time

    Pros

    Passionate people, really competitive and really easy to involved. Lots of opportunities for young professionals to get experience working with really knowledgeable leaders

    Cons

    You have to get used to having giant pictures of models all around. Sometimes there's finger pointing between departments refusing to accept fault. Some of the applications are very outdated and there's not a big push to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the young professionals and helping them to grow. More mentor-ship opportunities. Seems like a lot gets lost in the shuffle of getting work done rather than improving understanding.

    I worked at L Brands part-time

    Pros

    It was an energetic work environment with positive, friendly people. Everyone was a delight to work with.

    Cons

    The scheduling was very rough. The manager was good about when you had to call off, but she was not very good about scheduling you for days and times that you said you couldn't come in advance.

    Advice to Management

    Scheduling really needs to be better organized so that workers are not being drained or being called in on hours they are unavailable.
