    I worked at Lifetime Brands full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Getting to know product on a deeper level-VERY BENEFICIAL for someone going into any industry...

    Cons

    Interns may be overlooked if they don't ask for work...so make sure you ask! That's how you get ahead here-Go above & beyond!

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that the interns have enough quality work and time with their mentor to give them an even deeper understanding of the industry. Also, there should be better communication between employees so that the intern may know which work to prioritize from each person. Overall, this experience offers great opportunities, and gives interns a better understanding of how product works. It is an important tool that they will carry through life no matter what industry they may enter. I loved this experience!

    I worked at Lifetime Brands full-time

    Pros

    Dress code, work hours, cafeteria, medical and dental insurance

    Cons

    Inconsistent team policies
    Respectful facade from HR
    Understaffed and unskilled teams
    Worked with a patronizing manager

    Advice to Management

    To HR, do more to relate to those in non-management positions. Do not pretend to listen to our issues and do nothing about it while talking about us behind our backs. Do not cater to upper management always. The reason why your company is a revolving door and lacks talent is because of the environment that you helped create.
    To the managers, do more the listen to your staff. Some of you come off as patronizing. Thinking lowly of your staff does nothing but hurt your production and credibility.

    Pros

    Gym in the building for employees to use. Cafeteria in the building as well.

    Start listening to your employees more. And less to the managers. There were some very talented people working there.
