    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are great. Very communal workplace. Everyone in the office was very friendly. Everyone was very willing to help me get up to speed when I joined the team.

    Cons

    Doesn't feel like there is a lot of room for upward movement. Compensation was a little low for the position. Other than that, hard to say that there was anything that I was really dissatisfied with.

    I have been working at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Strong brand recognition, casual work environment, great people for the most part, great benefits, ok annual raises (at least we get one), job security -- this brand isn't going anywhere. On site training to further development provided (Microsoft Excel, Powerpoint, Word, Acess Classes, Time Management, Business Writing, Etc.)

    Cons

    Pay is ok, very difficult to move up -- blurry lines on what it takes to move up. Wish there were more corporate offices.

    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working for an internationally recognized brand, opportunities in sales and cash handling as well as basic assistant management, working with a large retail team, very community based.

    Cons

    Terrible hours, outlet mall setting gives way to less desirable consumers, MILLIONS of foreign tourists a year that do not speak ANY english, this is bottom of the totem poll at RL and upward movement takes a considerable amount of time.`
