    I worked at L Brands full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice coworkers. Fun atmosphere, but 'fun' doesn't pay bills.

    Cons

    Pays like crap. If you're standing around in uncomfortable shoes, make it worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Retail is a job no one else wants to do, pay people accordingly so they can LIVE. The people who stand around and peddle products they can't afford deserve just as much as a living wage as a CEO.

    I worked at L Brands full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, and vacation time off. The pay is okay too.

    Cons

    Lack of management available on the floor. No cost of living raises, there are performance ones, but they don't match cost of living, Departmental issues, and no real advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to learn the department you are in charge of. Interact and make the team feel like you care, instead of just saying it.
