Rumors are surfacing again about more cuts before the end of this month. Is there and truth to them?
Topics regarding layoffs at L Brands
Yes, the company was in bad shape and needed to restructure due to the pandemic and poor performance for years by VS. However, they found a lot of extra cash to give bonuses to the people they kept after the layoffs.
Is this going to be an interesting year as it relates to L Brands Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
It took me this long since July to get back on my feet - but I did it. I found a job with a starter company and it’s nothing like LB. I can honestly say getting cut was a blessing in disguise. How is everyone that was impacted holding up? I hope... — read more

Got a call from Leehecht Harrison. My career advisor’s name is Lakshmi and he’s from Bangalore India. They are paying him no less than 100 Indian rupees/hour to help me find a new job.
I’m tired of these meetings (the one with Nada A. and others) saying how sad they are for those of us laid off but also enthusiastic about the new team members? Wtf. This is so messed up
Has anyone had success negotiating an L Brands severance package - e.g. increasing the number of weeks paid or maybe a retention bonus for a later separation date?
Have a choice if I want 2 1/2 jobless java candles or 15% off coupon.
Disclaimer: I work for a competitor who just had massive layoffs.
Does anyone know which areas of the business/teams and/or locations are most significantly impacted?
Do you know how does the actual act of communicating that you've been laid off happen? What do they tell you? How long does it take?
What are your thoughts?
1) Severance (type, source, amount of payments) 2) Mass layoff/Buyout ID# 3) Your employer FED ID# (not as simple as just "Lbrands") 4) your start date mm/dd/yy (even a day off can cause denied unemployment app) 5) Specific reason for separation... — read more

Individual vs group meetings?

Okay, what the freaking hell is this c-ap? This timeline is horrible and if they actually follow this plan it will be an embarrassment to L Brands and the reputation impact will last for decades. Last week of July!? It's literally July 22nd!! Have... — read more
