At one time RL was a great place to work
DIRECTOR (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 14, 2017
I started working at RL soon after college. It was a great place to work; the best job I ever had. However, with increasing competition from nimble internet fashion companies and new executive management, it seems like there are more opportunities elsewhere.
There was a time when young people would join the company, get promoted, and stay with the company for years. You would meet VPs who had started as receptionists or administrative assistants. In the past couple of years, there has been a marked departure from this paradigm. Young people continue to join the company, but they move on to other companies; mostly internet companies with more growth opportunities.
