Excellent place to learn from the best in the business.
Pros: excellent compensation, ability to learn and grow, i was proud of the work i produced there
Cons: work/life balance can be challenging depending on your position in the organization
I learned how a highly successful retail company produces catalogs. I had the opportunity to collaborate with designers, individuals in quality control, merchants, and excellent art directors to produce highly effective marketing materials.
In addition to the opportunity to learn, grow, and advance I had great co-workers.
The toughest part of the job was that it was based in the midwest and I was not originally from that part of the country, so I missed my family.
It's true that as I advanced up the corporate ladder the work life balance became challenging. But I feel this is typical of large corporations.
I have lots of respect for Lands' End. I appreciate the time I spent working there.
