    I worked at Liz Claiborne full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They liked to promote from within, women had the same chances as men for promotion. If you worked hard, you didn't need to ask for a raise or promotion.

    Cons

    During the last years there, Senior management was poor and was forced to sell off divisions and eliminate entire departments.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should have been replaced many years ago but the CEO was kept on too long leading to the ultimate deterioration of a once great company.

    I worked at Liz Claiborne as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working in-house corporate, I had the privilege of mentoring less experienced colleagues while learning so much from the divisional directors that I reported to. Since we were on the same "team" as the client, there was an ease about the whole process of providing smart design solutions that fulfilled the needs of this Fortune 500 company. Budgets were somewhat flexible and this allowed us to hire some of the most gifted creative talents out there.

    Cons

    Leadership within the divisions that I handled on an ongoing basis was excellent but there were some rather inflexible and difficult personalities that I came up against along the way. That is, of course, to be expected. In the long run, my Creative Director made sure that each Art Director was working with divisional heads in harmony so if the pairing was not running smoothly, adjustments in partnering were made.
