Suggestions for improvement

  • Create a management induction training. There needs to exist a knowledge base on how to create/approve projects, where to get resources, etc.

What I like about the company

It is a well established company which is currently bringing back its original vision and refocusing the business. There is a major goal to become the "employer of choice".

What I dislike about the company

You need to arrive ready to go and you need to be a go-getter. Nobody will provide you any details on what you need to do or which processes to follow. Sometimes, there are no processes to follow but you're invited to create the processes then (which is actually a good opportunity). Since there are many people working here for large amounts of time (25 year work anniversary is a common mark), there's a more than desirable amount of "it's always been like this" situation whenever a change needs to be applied, but with some effort it is possible to overcome that.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better communication and a more successful hiring team.

What I like about the company

It is a large company in an area that doesn't have many large scale employers so they employ a lot of people in the area.

What I dislike about the company

Lands End has very busy seasons and during those times the workers' well-being seems to take a back seat to sales and production.

Company Culture

Upper management gets whatever they want and everyone else has to scramble and jump. Often leaving more important projects behind, then getting in trouble for them not being completed.

Support from management

Leaders tend to back whatever is best for the business instead of supporting employees. Do not set clear goals or mentor employees. Not much help with career growth.

Internal Communication

Seems like there is clear communication, then days later there will be people who misunderstand what was agreed upon, instead of asking questions.

Career Development

No training, no mentoring, no career development

Overall compensation for your work

not competitive with wages, no bonuses in past years, no real raises

Work-Life Balance

If you don't have kids, you will be over looked for vacation on holidays.

Challenging Work

No training yet expected to work with most current tech or out of date tech.
