    Pros

    The people are really nice and easygoing. I barely had to stay late - basically 9-5 job.

    Cons

    There's way too much gossip and drama (but then again, most companies are like this). Also, the work is too relaxed. Everyone spends a lot of time chit chatting rather than doing actual work.

    Advice to Management

    During my time, I've seen many people come and go. I really wish Liz Claiborne retained those who actually provided their time and effort in the company.

    Great place for entry level individuals to start, but not great growth potential from that point on.
    The company fails to recognize their internal employees versus hiring from outside.

    Benefits are not in line with other corporations

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Liz Claiborne offers a competitive wage when compared to competitors. Also, the store staff is very small, so minimal mistakes and communication errors are made.

    Cons

    Still, there is very bad communication with senior level management. Employee politics occur and are unfair if you don't "play the game".

    Advice to Management

    Please pay more attention to your employees and watch out for store managers that are taking advantage of the system.

    Pros

    the benefits are good - also there are many different brands, so you can move within the company and have possible growth within.

    Cons

    the company is too corporate - sometimes its hard to get around the bureaucracy than to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    it is best to get to know your all of your team members and people within your division.


  8. "Corporate company with big names and no leadership"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great connections to various areas of the fashion world. There are many small divisions within the company where people can network and learn more about all fields. There are really supportive programs that allow employees to give back to the community and a library of information to continue learning.

    Cons

    Productivity is hard to accomplish without the right tools. The computer programs used are extremely out of date, and wastes so much time and money. Instead of pushing people to work harder, LC needs to recognize those who have and reward them!

    Advice to Management

    Make more investments in technology, promote better communication within divisions.
