    I have been working at Lands' End full-time

    Pros

    New leadership in multiple divisions is has significantly improved the position and growth of the company. Great benefits, on campus facilities. Lands' End Business and Lands' End School are growing substantially and have landed multiple large Fortune 100 companies as well as some of the largest schools in the country. Excellent job growth potential. Lands' End culture is second to none. Great reputation and respect when in the field. Customer service is outstanding. So many employee benefits outside of typical Medical, Dental, etc. to list. Large company summer parties and concerts. 1/2 day Fridays in summer months

    Cons

    IT Infrastructure needs to be updated- but that is happening currently. As any growing company, there are growing pains- Lands' End is no exception. Pay tends to be on the lower side

    Advice to Management

    Ensure pay is fair. Increase commissions and comp plan for field sales. Create a sound career path for employees.

    Pros

    Big business in a small town. Has that small town charm. Lots of benefits like an on site fitness center w/ pool.

    Cons

    can sometimes be discouraged from moving to new positions within the company( more of a per manager issue)

    encourage movement and promotion from with-in the company

    Pros

    Great brand story, nice onsite benefits

    Cons

    Intense, high strung atmosphere in their B2B division.

    Advice to Management

    Lands' End Business has lost a lot of talent over the years with the change in leadership in the division and I'm not sure the reasoning behind it. Good luck with recreating Aramark - Dodgeville. Positive impression of Mr. Griffith.

    Pros

    The company likes to think they're an employee's choice kind of company. So they do offer a couple perks, like a free on-site gym & half day Fridays during the summer. The small perks, however, to not make up for the negatives of working in this company.

    Cons

    You are treated like a child - your every movement you make and decision you make is questioned and challenged. It's even to a point where you talk to your cubicle neighbor and your bosses remind you to keep quiet and get back to work. Literally like an elementary school environment. Your bosses are just that - bosses, not leaders. You will never be told whether or not you're doing a good job, even during a review - in which you will not get a raise during, as the company has not given them in years. You are not in an environment of growth - if you want to grow, you're best going to another company.

    Advice to Management

    The COMPANY advertises a professional environment, freedom to work remote, work/life balance, growth & development, and really being an employee's CHOICE. They absolutely have the right idea as a company, but the execution down to their departments is a complete miss. The environment does not actually exist within the company, and they refuse to uncover their eyes and see it.
