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

    Pros

    Really great team members and people at Lands' End. I totally feel part of a group that cares about my individual success/growth as well as aligning to business objectives. Good quality of life...yes, work is high speed, and changes happen, but that keeps it exciting and allows for growth. Great work out facility, onsite health care, backup child care, causal dress code and food on site. Still has some of the community feel, while being a larger corporation.

    Cons

    Drive to Dodgeville is a bit lengthy...but beautiful. A little bit "corporate", but that's not unusual. High pressure to be successful (sign of growth).

    Advice to Management

    Remember how we got here....a lot of trust, honesty, and transparency from management is critical. Keep a continued focus on Quality, Value and Service.

    Smart and hard working staff, Fitness Center, Friendly vibe.

    Cons

    More of a neutral comment - bring political chops if desiring to advance in company - connect with the "in" crowd - search out power players - watch your back.

    Pros

    Its a great work enviorment and people are laid back. Leads are very apporachable and happy to help with any concenrs. Getting time off is a breeze, and they have minimal schedule requirements. They seem to always be hiring. Lands' End is always my #1 recommendation for people to apply to in this area.

    Cons

    As a guy, the enviorment in the Stevens Point office is quite matriarchal. There are a total of 2 men in any leadership positions in the entire building. To be fair, a large part of the population of workers are female, however, it feels like there could be room for at least 1-2 more guys in leadership.

    I have been working at Lands' End full-time

    Pros

    The company is a has a good overall culture. They understand that employees have difficulties in their personal life, and they try to work with them. It is a great place to gain experience in many different aspects of business. You have a voice in developing the new processes and products.

    Cons

    Promoting from within has slowed recently. Recently micro-managing has increased, and you feel like you can't please management with your work performance.

    Advice to Management

    Micro-managing only discourages your employees and decreases productivity. If you want to increase productivity, you need to trust the people in your organization to do their job while you continue to make improvements to the processes, products, and etc.
