    Pros

    Discounts, decent salary, good bonus structure (if eligible), hard to get fired (see cons), Starbucks on campus, culture and values workshop

    Cons

    Terrible PTO, benefits were meh, very political and relational-it’s who you know, no career pathing for non-product functions, too much separation of brands-each operated independent of the enterprise, no insight into business results, very twitchy about the IP, very risk averse, stingy with budgets but also spent ridiculous amounts on store operations events.’

    I worked at L Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good salary and benefits for central Ohio

    Cons

    very burn and turn, do not invest in their employees, very judgemental and not open to new ideas, the company tends to bring in a bunch of people throw them against the wall to see who sticks, then lays them off eventually anyway. No long term loyalty to the associate. Of all of the business units VS creates an environment of stress and distrust pitting associate against associate, no true team work no trust.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ways of doing things, you might not have so much turn over.
