    I worked at J. Crew part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The best reason that to work at J.Crew was the cool people you meet. It is such a good work environment that has great benefits and pay.

    Cons

    The overnights that stock had were pretty painful to deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to learn to have a chill button sometimes. They can take their power over board very rarely.

    I worked at J. Crew full-time

    Pros

    Company has very friendly people, especially in the corporate office and they know how to treat their employees. There are great benefits and pretty good salaries for lower-skilled positions.

    Cons

    There is not much room for movement here and many people have been there for many years. Most upper-level management are "traded" from other retailers and putting in your time may only be worth the promotion if you don't mind not learning anything new. J.Crew is classically caught in the retail day-to-day, zero-hindsight issues of planning and reacting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop constantly changing direction with strategy and have good longterm plans.
