    I have been working at Banana Republic part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Generous discount on full-priced merchandise
    Flexible scheduling
    Bonuses available
    No commission on sales emphasizes teamwork rather than competition
    Company is very LGBT-friendly
    Company emphasizes community service

    Cons

    Stingy with discounts on sale merchandise
    Can't really afford to shop here on my salary
    Pointless meetings outside of work that waste my (and everyone else's) time
    Too many expectations for a low-paying job
    Difficult to get bonuses
    Lots of shifts scheduled to maximize work time and avoid giving adequate breaks

    Advice to Management

    Increase the discount on sale merchandise.
    Increase hourly wages overall (perhaps you can take a couple million dollars in pay from the CEO to fund it) or stop expecting us to memorize the composition, features and care instructions for everything in the store.
    Stop with the pointless meetings. There is nothing learned at these meetings that I couldn't read on a piece of paper on my own time.

  2. The company has a great work environment but its hard to grow within the company for higher positions.

    There is like an invisible glass ceiling to reach higher management positions , pay is relatively low and rarely pay increases.

    Have better pay incentives for employees.
