    I worked at Lands' End full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful Facilities. Good-Enough Health Insurance. Fun-younger Energy.

    Cons

    Poor Work-Life, Terrible Commute.

    Advice to Management

    Have a station in Madison, or something. Unless you move to Dodgeville its just to far away to feel comfortable.

    I worked at Lands' End full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was good and they have a nice workout facility

    Cons

    The people that work here are mostly from Dodgeville and are not very accepting of people from out of town. The culture is negative because everyone is so upset that it hasn’t been the same since Sears bought them.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees, foster a positive working environment and pay for training and education

    I worked at Lands' End full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They provide a lot of nice perks for employees including an on-site gym, music at lunch, farmers market, half-day Fridays in the summer, a great discount, and a lot of fun events.

    Cons

    Management on the Business Outfitters side is absolutely terrible. They set unrealistic expectations and give you no resources to meet them. I have never seen and experienced such disrespect from former and current members of the leadership team. They blatantly talk down to and scream at employees in front of others. IT is backed up by years. It's impossible to implement any new programs. Don't let the perks blind you - this place is awful.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees. Listen to them. Set realistic expectations. Make sure to provide employees with the resources they need to succeed.

    I have been working at Lands' End full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful company all around. New CEO is making smart changes and elevating the quality of everything from working at Lands End to the quality of products.

    Cons

    Some of the people who have been there a long time have issues with change and it effects how they treat others trying to evolve the processes.
    Managers make timing decisions without including the people on the ground doing the Day to Day work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee feedback during these times of change to help improve the evolution now rather than learning on your own later.
