    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.
