BEST PLACE TO WORK... PERIOD.


Uppers

Exposure to leadership; Opportunities to go above and beyond my job description; Great company culture


Downers

Length of internship... way too short!


Advice to Potential Interns

For any candidates out there considering Limited Brands, here are my food for thought: Limited Brands is a place where you can mold your internship-- which can be a good thing or a bad thing. The company does not hold your hand through every step of the internship but instead lays the responsibility for making the most out of the internship program on the interns. The opportunities for networking and professional development are numerous.. but an intern has to constantly be proactive to seek it out.


Advice to Management

I would love for the internship program to get a better exposure to the company's relationship with the community. If my department wasn't so closely linked with Community Relations, I would have never known know much Limited Brands give to support Columbus and NYC. I think the exposure would help solidify Limited Brands' reputation as a "best place to work"

Corporate Culture, amount of responsibility given, exposure to upper management


Downers

I honestly have nothing negative to say about my experience


Advice to Potential Interns

The company really cares about their employees and their quality of life. In my department, there were constant birthday parties and office politics seemed to have been at a minimum. The office is very young and everyone is extremely friendly

Unique, challenging, and rewarding. Once in a lifetime experience.


Uppers

Sitting in Monday night meetings with the CEO and leadership of Victoria's Secret and the opportunity to travel overnight to our New York City office.


Downers

There is nothing I do not like. It can at times be very stressful and demanding, especially on Mondays, but retail is fast paced and that's what I loved about this industry and this job.


Advice to Potential Interns

This is the best company to work for. The internship is so challenging and rewarding, and makes you work extremely hard. The pay is great and the work atmosphere is outstanding.


Advice to Management

The only thing some students might need is more training time. For merchandising interns you are expected to drive right in and catch on quickly.


Would You Recommend

Yes

The most ideal experience for those interested in retail.

The best aspects of my internship included the culture of the company, the willingness of my team to teach me and make me the best/most knowledgable intern, the ability to network and the open communication.


Downers

The location.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you are interested in retail and want to learn, grow, and thrive in one of the best environments with one of the best companies, Limited Brands is the right employer for you!


Advice to Management

More guidance with regard to housing would have been greatly appreciated!

Limited Brands shows great appreciation to their interns


Uppers

All of the full time associates really show great appreciation to the work the interns do. They are not afraid to put trust into us to complete a task or assignment, and they always make sure they are available for you when you have questions/concerns. Working at Limited Brands has given me a much better perspective on what work will be like when I graduate and find a full time job. They have given me a chance to work on my own projects and help out on projects that are already underway. The company is very interested in the feedback we give and our insights on the projects we take part in.


Downers

The hardest part, when I started working for the technology department of Limited Brands, was adjusting to the language they used. Everyone seemed to be talking in acronyms and about systems I had never even heard of. It was hard to adjust to for the first few weeks.


Advice to Potential Interns

Never be afraid to ask questions. When there is something you don't understand, write it down and ask your manager while the context of it is still fresh in your mind. They will never push you away because they are too busy or don't want to take the time to explain something. They are there to help you learn, and at first it is a little nerve racking to ask a million questions, especially if it is your first internship, but they understand. Most everyone has been in your position before so they really appreciate when you are curious about the different projects and culture of Limited Brands.

The opportunity to meet other departments, the trip to New York, working in Victoria's Secret Lingerie


Downers

The other interns (coming from the same school became clicky), and made it a bit frustrating to work with.


Advice to Potential Interns

Dont be afraid to be curious and ask questions!!


Advice to Management

Delegate interns from all different schools that way it eliminates cliques but it really is a great work environment otherwise
