    I have been working at Ann Taylor part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment, from the people I work with to the structure of the company. Very flexible with my schedule and able to work around any conflict I may have. Not to mention I love the clothes!

    Cons

    It seems to be a temporary job for many, somewhere for people to go while they are looking for full-time work.

    Pros

    Fashion forward; compassionate leadership; excellent benefits; dynamic environment

    Cons

    The biggest challenge working for this company is the lack of tools they give you to meet company guidelines. Deadlines are created and demanded, but product is late to ship or visual elements are shoddily done. However, this is not a deal breaker, and if you're resourceful, you can make it work.
