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

    Pros

    Great people, innovative processes, ability for growth. Had the chance to travel for them for about five years and they always did it right...safe and classy. Management was well trained and were always looking for good growth opportunities for their staff.

    Cons

    The opportunities are limited now due to change in overall company. Pay was good but raises were very small typically. Most jobs are in NY so limited availability in this area.

    Pros

    It is fun, the upper management is great, HR is wonderful, the stores are beautiful and the clothing quality is very good. Customers are women with discerning taste and like to be loyal.

    Cons

    you are working with women of all ages and there is sometimes drama

    Advice to Management

    great job, try to incorporate more choices within clothing lines, more co-ordinating pieces, sometimes nothing really goes with anything else in the same collection, and it is hard to sell "outfits" or extra co-ordinating options to customers. if there were more "nuetral" pieces upselling would be easier and sales would be higher.

    Pros

    Smart leaders. Even after re-structure. Hard working field employees running with each and every change the organization goes through. :)

    Cons

    Need a new identity. The traditional customer no longer exists and the customer that you are after needs to know you are there.

    Advice to Management

    Advise would be to spend more money marketing the new liz brand to it's new target audience. Complete the launch with a fine fragrance update!
