    I have been working at LF USA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    NOTHING. THE BRANDS ARE GOING DOWN SO NOTHING TO REALLY MENTION HERE.

    Cons

    Business going down in a bad way is not the place you want to spend your future- horrible management - no room for growth - horrible work environment of back stabbing and cattiness - not supportive (unless you like cocaine that is) and definitive somewhere I would send my worst enemy not my best friend. DON"T BOTHER!! YOU WONT LEARN ANYTHING EXCPET WHAT NOT TO DO - MANAGEMENT IS LACKING ANY TALENT WHATSOEVER.

    Advice to Management

    WORST MANAGEMENT SKILLS I HAVE SEEN IN A CORP. WASTE OF SPACES!!!

    Pros

    Great benefits, we just started having to pay for insurance but costs are minimal compared to other companies. With tenure, vacation time is generous and salaries are competitive.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up in the company if you are not in the NY area or willing to move to the area. Also difficult to move into new roles as exposure to upper management is limited.

    Pros

    May have opportunities to work overseas

    Cons

    The company is always changing and there always seem to be alot of lay offs that happen. The potential to grow within the company is terrible. Compensation is not on par with the average job level.

    I worked at LF USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Jimlar management that has been there a long time (generally speaking) are nice, good people. Healthcare used to be free, but that was recently changed.

    Cons

    The senior management is very poor, weak. Management does not have a solid strategy. Product teams try to follow what little strategy they do have in place and then they blame those underneath them for poor performance. Management style is to yell at staff and blame design for everything. This is seen across several several managers at the top. Long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Get much better leaders. Inspire people. Make them want to work and feel good. People will work very hard for people they like and believe in.

    Pros

    The environment was very warm and the people are great to work with.

    Cons

    Worked very long hours and received nothing in return. There was no room for growth at all within this company. Sales team also did not provide accurate or enough information to designers in order to better product and sales.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure if it would be useful to even advise management on how to better the company. I believe this company is too unstable for any future advice.
