    I have been working at Banana Republic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I highly recommend working at Banana Republic to anyone who is passionate about versatile, trendy and timeless style. There are lots of opportunities to grow within the Gap family of brands - even relocation abroad - if that strikes your fancy. Certain levels of management will gladly help you get to where you want to be career-wise. And all you literally have to do is ask.

    Cons

    The pay is a little bit on the low end to start, but that is expected for entry level positions. Though it is certainly not the lowest I have ever received from a retailer. Not by a long shot. Employee discount is OK, though most items fall a little high in price even after it's applied. The company should probably consider increasing the discount to offset the markups that have inevitably occurred over the years - and keep things fair for the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! You know what it takes to keep your talent and help them succeed - if that's what they want. Consider giving quarterly bonuses, increased discounts, or other incentives to ALL levels of store management (even your leads).

    Pros

    Wonderful growth opportunities.
    Leadership team is willing to train associates that are eager to learn and grow within their field.

    Cons

    Low pay, management gives lousy pay increases. Reviews are not toward the specific associates job title.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should realize the talent some associates have and give them the raise they deserve. Many associates leave due to lack of recognition and pay.
    HR also needs to learn which candidates to hire-many do not know what to look for when it comes to hiring visual/merchandising candidates.
