Rapid-paced, stressful evnironment with loose management styles
Retail IT Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Lyndhurst, NJ – September 2, 2017
Rapid paced and stressful work environment with loose management styles. Inter-communication between related departments was "sketchy" at best. Employees generally handled the workload, without exaggeration, of 4-5 people. Opportunities to advance were few and far between, with zero tuition reimbursement for school and disparities between job duties and titles within the organization. Many employees suffered from burn-out because of the absence of respect for work/life boundaries. Discount perks were adequate. Regular performance reviews and helpful input and suggested strategies for personal improvement from management were non-existent. If you get a position at RL, have an external advancement plan before you go in and stick to it. The work environment is VERY busy and quite a bit of travel.
