    I worked at L Brands (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to move up in the company is available, possible and encouraged. store #1406

    Cons

    The only con is if you work in retail we are NOT protected. The store I worked at (and my daughter currently does) is visited by thieves (not just shoplifters) on a REGULAR BASIS. The past 2 days in a row groups have come in to the store, said vulger things and casually/blatently took thousands of dollars of merchandise. They left in a stolen vehicle. We feel threatened and scared and its a matter of time before someone gets hurt. Groups stealing from V.S. at this store happens at least once a month for the past 3 years and still management has no security guard. Im encouraging my daughter to quit b/c I fear for her safety.

    Advice to Management

    Either close this store or hire a fulltime security guard.

    I have been working at L Brands full-time

    Pros

    The people you work with are great. Great benefits like paid time off and health insurance is decent. And the discount is great too.

    Cons

    Atmosphere is very similar to high school. Everyone is micromanaged and you feel like you are a child rather than an adult.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like an adult. If you feel like employees aren't trust worthy than stop hiring such trash.

    Pros

    The company fundamentals are great!
    Pay and Benefits are good. Easy, quality & fun merchandise makes sales a breeze.
    Associates are very friendly.

    Cons

    Unorganized & lack of competency in leadership, start with District Manager being disconnected to the business (no real contact with clients & associates) trickles down to managers that continuously underperform, & never communicate with each other leading to confusion on daily goals & tasks & associates not caring about the business, causing low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Give Managers proper training & follow up on their performance. Connect & listen to associates & clients for better performance
