    I have been working at J. Crew

    Pros

    Really takes care of "their people" with "free"clothes (crew clothes) after training is complete, great perks and benefits packages.

    It's a company that cares about fashion and their customer

    Cons

    Recently took away commission for sales associates stating that "commission is not helping drive sales"; however, sales have not been the best over the past 2 years not because of sales associates but because of labor and quality of textile decisions that the company has made.

The crews depicted in the polished catalogs of the J. Crew Group are far from motley.
