Current CEO: Lori Greeley
Due to an embarrassing encounter in trying to purchase lingerie for his spouse, Roy Raymond decided to start his own company. Aimed at providing a comfortable environment for men to browse various undergarments, the first Victoria’s Secret was opened in San Francisco, California, in 1977. After finding success, Mr. Raymond sold his interest in the company to The Limited in 1982. The store continued to expand and become more popular, ultimately becoming the largest American retailer that specializes in lingerie. Today, there are over 1000 outlets throughout the United States and the store continues to earn profit for the parent organization.
With such a widespread operation, there is an obvious need for employees to help the company achieve goals. Victoria’s Secret careers not only focus on helping the company earn profits but also allow interested individuals to express their creative instincts in their daily job responsibilities. One of the key components of the organizations success is the ability to design and showcase desired fashion for the marketplace. With fine tailoring of clothing and cutting edge marketing efforts, working at Victoria’s Secret allows individuals to continually challenge themselves. Such success allows people to grow in their careers and truly make a difference for the consumer.
Victoria’s Secret culture embraces an ethos of social responsibility. The management of the corporation operates in a high moral standard that is not only good for the company but also the communities in which they operate. They strive to be stewards of their community and leaders within their environment. This type of attitude is infectious and results in more positive business standards throughout the organization. Maintaining this philosophy allows every employee to improve upon their strengths and provide greater value for both the company and themselves.
As with any career, finding compensation packages that provide for the well-being of the individual is important. With this understanding, Victoria’s Secret benefits are designed to offer health and welfare components that offer improvement in one’s life. Flexible insurance and savings plans help employees gain the security they need while planning for the future. A number of lifestyle benefits help each individual obtain a healthy balance of work with the demands of their life. With tuition reimbursement, time off with pay and various discounts on merchandise, employees gain value from their effort toward their position. These additional compensation packages motivate each individual to be the best at what they do.
