    Pros

    The best thing about working for Lucky Brand is the discount, the employee gets 60% off anything bought themself and 40% something bought as a gift for someone else. If you are an associate working very part time Lucky Brand can be a fun and laid back place to work but don't try to get promoted and certainly don't have the desire to know what is going on in management, you will be disappointed and learn to hate the company

    Cons

    Disresepect to all employees, the pay is not competetive, the upper management is not profesional, constant accusation of things you didnt do so they can try to admitt to something you did do even if you didn't do anything. they would rather hire outsaide the company then promote with in. Constant change in policy and proceedure, they have a low budget so they are constantly cutting hours of employees even if the employee is full time. I would not recomend this company to ANYONE!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and reward hard work. If you paid competetively you would have good employees who care and your profit will go and turn over will go down!

    Pros

    great discounts on a variety of brands. opportunity to work at a variety of stores. opportunity to learn different aspects of the retail world.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is not respected and you are required to continually go above and beyond with no recognition for your efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Respect ALL levels of employees. Don't treat people as if they are dispensible. You gain loyalty by treating people with respect.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, flexible for mothers, good benefits. Decent discounts on products. Excellent legacy in apparel industry.

    Cons

    promotions and salary are arbitrary. No path for advancement. They thinned out much of the company over the past year without thinking about how lay offs would affect the operations first. You have to know people to get anything done. Poor communication between teams - people constantly ignore emails and phone calls from colleagues within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Stop wasting money on useless office redesigns and collateral.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They had a great benefit package, although it would have been nice to have
    a pension out of it.

    Cons

    Has sold off so much of their brands acquired in the past that they have lost a great number of their customers, yet expect Mangers to convert by selling low quality "fashion".

    Advice to Management

    Too late to offer advice for Liz. Looks like they will never get back that classic line, have lost their
    base of shoppers and instead cater to the teeny boppers by invbesting in all the kiddie lines....DKNY, Lucky, Juicy, Kensie....

    Glad to be out of there

  8. "The company's strategies are focused on Juicy, Lucky and kate spade."

    the ample PTO, 21 days was great
    locations near Times Square
    benfits

    Cons

    lack of internal communication
    favoritism
    promoted more men than women
    did not offer flexible working arrangments for working mothers, as they claim

    Pros

    Lots of perks. Sample sales, summer hours, 21 vacation days

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible at communicating when big changes take place. Employees find out most of the changes through press releases on the internet. They keep selling all the brands. I would be surprised if they are still in business in a year.
