Pros: flexible schedules, travel opportunities, great networking, very sellable product!
Cons: poor upper management, awful communication, very unorganized company wide.
I dedicated a lot of time and energy to this company. I loved the brand, the product and the history. I engaged with customers and appreciated their business. Unfortunately, there is little opportunity of growth. They don't value their employees and stick to a "If you are not content leave, no one is forcing you to stay here". There is poor training and extremely high expectations. Very poor communication between corporate and retail stores. I learned a lot about digging for answers and finding my own solutions. I bonded well with the customer service rep and operations manager to solve problems. The staff at my location was fantastic! We had an amazing Store Manager with experience with the company who unfortunately got blindsided and pushed out of her position. I believe in good training and communication to turn your employees into role models for future new employees. Lacoste unfortunately did not invest any energy on talent. Great brand, bad upper management.
