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

    Pros

    The people are what makes this company! The associate values make it so the right people are coming in, and this creates positive work environments. Upper management in the West is amazing!

    Cons

    Communication from corporate. There has been a lot of turnover, and with so much movement it seems as if there isn't a solid foundation where everyone knows what's going on.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time in the retail field! More time for training, not cutting hours during holiday, and making stores feel like they are making an impact.

    Communication among managers can be improved
    Don't dump workload on lower level management
