    I have been working at Lilly Pulitzer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working for this company is a dream. The support of the home office and all of upper management amazing. Very inspiring group of leaders. The company cares about their employees and everyone loves what they do. The stores are beautiful and bright and working there makes you happy. The product is A+ and makes selling it fun! Great customers that love the brand. I've made so many great friends who work at other stores, everyone is so inspiring and positive and there to help in anyway possible.

    Cons

    All is great, nothing that comes to mind.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, such a positive work environment.

    I worked at Lilly Pulitzer full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very good discount, good clothes, you also get a paid day off on your birthday, a few fun events if you’re young you are likely to work with people your age

    Cons

    Very low pay, unfair scheduling, what I was told during the interview about the role was almost 100% false to what the actual job was. Management has no idea what’s going on in the stores and with the employees. Very disappointing. My advice would be to work for a store that carries Lilly instead of working for Lilly there is little to no growth especially from retail to corporate.

    Pros

    Great sunny disposition in stores and projected from corporate! Staff is friendly, inviting, diverse, and a joy to be around. Scheduling is flexible and benefits are great. Discount is unreal, best in the industry and the product is great.

    Cons

    Slightly antiquated register system but seeing as it's an easy program to her it's hardly a con. Still waiting to find a real con at this job

    Advice to Management

    I admire my management superiors and hope to grow with this company. I am so glad I applied when I did, it's been such a pleasure to work for this company.

    I worked at Lilly Pulitzer part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Huge employee discount- 75% and sometimes they'd make certain items 80% to encourage employees to buy them. You could also buy for friends and family as long as they were gifts. Anyone who says that they had a lower discount probably didn't work for a corporate store. Signature stores (that work like the franchised model) determine their discounts on their own.
    -Positive team building and leadership.
    -Loyal client base.

    Cons

    -You always feel like you are competing with the website.
    -Sales are limited, and clothes are expensive. So often people come in to be turned off by the prices.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers tend to treat the rules different than others. Some managers are all about the drama. I've also heard that it's easier to get promoted if you have a certain "look."
