Great engineers stifled by bloated process
Front End Developer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 21, 2018
In summary, the engineering team was quite good, with great talent on board that one could pair program with and sponge off of.

There were efforts to make everything better, but the amount of managerial bloat and meetings about meetings made for slow moving tech projects.
Pros
Great engineers
Cons
Process and politics override creative engineering

Photo Studio
Photo Studio Employee (Current Employee) –  Pottsville, PAOctober 7, 2018
For the most part it is a very enjoyable place to work. They do what they can to keep the moral high, but the constant frustration for employees is the lack of communication from the higher ups. They are pretty good about working with schedules and when you may need time off.
Pros
Flexible time off
Cons

Help Desk Analyst (Current Employee) –  Jacskon, MsAugust 21, 2018
This company constantly sending jobs/position to India. So if you're looking for job security, this is not the place for you. Also management is fairly new and coming from jobs where they have no technical background which makes the day to day operations a struggle. If you have family, don't expect to have weekends off as management felt it was a good idea to go from being off every other weekend to working every weekend while management have contractors to work the weekends while they get to enjoy family
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Insurances, management, no overtime

Ping Pong Table and Fooz Ball
Mail Clerk (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 8, 2018
It's a cool place to work and the discounts are great if you like fashion but its not a place to stay for a long time. Didn't plan on staying there very long. It was a good experience and the credit card helped me buy things I would never buy with physical money. I felt good buying things like shopping always does. But the position I held at the company and the salary couldn't keep up with the purchases.
Pros
Discounts at Sak's
Cons
Lack of work

Terrible management
Sales associate (Former Employee) –  New YorkAugust 7, 2018
I’ve worked for many different retailers and Lord & Taylor is by far the worst. Management is very unprofessional. The expectations they place on their employees are truly ridiculous and unattainable. Business is very slow and quite frankly I can’t see how they are still in business. Don’t waste your time with this poorly run company.
Pros
Coworkers are pleasant
Cons
Healthcare is ridiculously expensive. They don’t want to listen to any complaints or concerns.

Disappointed
Logistics and Transportation (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 5, 2018
The company isn't doing well, which is obvious to employees and non-employees alike. Between large layoffs and store/warehouse closures everyone is afraid for their positions.

Management is not trained, are disrespectful, and unable to change as technology grows.

Promotions and raises are halted and there is no room for growth in the company.
Pros

Cons
Management, layoffs, turn over, pay

Pay Could Be Better For All You Do
Asset Protection Investigator (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJuly 24, 2018
A lot of days on the job are slow. Monday through Friday you should be doing your floor work and talking too associates.
When floor work for the week is done you should be actively looking for cases and watching out for grab and runs. Must always be quick on your feet never know when something is going to go down. And you can get hurt in a apprehension. When making a stop always go for a quick and safe stop if possible. Goal is to make safe stops and recover merchandise.
Pros
Hour lunch/ pay check
Cons
A lot

Overall decent company
Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) –  Pottsville, PAJuly 13, 2018
Very mindless job. Although, it can make you very bored. There is no music ever playing, and it is very quiet and demanding. It is alot of walking, miles upon miles of walking a day. But the staff is friendly and so is management. Although drama is bad.
Pros
Close to home
Cons
Travel

Too Many Layoffs
HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITER & GENERALIST (Current Employee) –  Jackson, MSJuly 7, 2018
This company has loads of potential but with constant mergers and layoffs, no one is confident in their job. This creates such a uncomfortable work environment that employees seek other opportunities before being released.

Company Is Struggling
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Wilkes-Barre, PAJune 25, 2018
The company has come across financial hardship as a lot of retail is these days. The company is doing what they see fit to manage costs for their investors. Unfortunately the company brought outside executives to streamline the company. This lead to the removal of some of the most senior and knowledgeable staff. The company might be saving the cost in dollars on the bottom line, although they will most likely spend more money due to knowledge gaps.
Cons
healthcare
