    Pros

    This company offers great opportunities for creativity wether in desgin, marketing or others. We have fabulous people working here and some recent additions have brought meaningful improvements.

    Cons

    A bit disorganized. Policies are not always broadcasted and are not that easy to find so not all employees are aware. Members of management do not all walk the talk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate, communicate, communicate. When you think everybody knows, think otherwise because your messages are not understood by all.

    I worked at Liz Claiborne

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    You will work with some very nice people. The atmosphere isn't too terrible.

    The people at the top can be tough and ready to fire you if you rub them the wrong way. That's not a wonderful thing to have hanging over your head.
