    I worked at The Limited full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Limited had a great family culture. Minimal politics, good benefits, good pay, and for the most part - no egos.

    Cons

    Ownership by a venture capitalist company that lead to minimal investment to grow the company eventually leading to closure of an iconic retail chain.

    Advice to Management

    Too late of offer any.

    Pros

    Wonderful family amongst the stores in our district.

    Cons

    Company was mismanaged and closed all brick and mortar stores. Hopefully the online portion is bought and we will still be able to buy the classic staples The Limited is known for.

    I worked at The Limited full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pleasant corporate culture and clearly defined company values and mission. Good work-life balance relative to the industry. Longevity of tenure throughout the functions and ranks.

    Cons

    There was often times a drastic difference between the product line that was developed and the line that was actually delivered to stores and e-com. The over-abundance of cautionary decision making driven by selling history and rigid cost reduction efforts ultimately became a self-fulfilling prophecy and was a substantial contributor to the company's downfall.
