IT Guy's Review: It's A Pretty Good Company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Polo Ralph Lauren

ProsFor the most part, I have enjoyed working for this company. The atmosphere is challenging and rewarding, compensation is decent, and it really says something about a company that so many of their employees have tenures ranging from 5-25 years. This company is stable, fiscally conservative, and as of this writing is expanding its operation nationally and internationally.

ConsThis is a somewhat top heavy organization that lacks a satisfactory number of support personnel in critical IT support areas. They have been slow to react to increasing support requirements, as the user base continues to expand but compensation and support personnel remain understaffed and over-worked. Arbitrary and counter-productive policies come from all directions, with managers at various levels providing contradicting information, increasing individual workload but failing to account for these problems come review time.

Personnel conflicts and complaints are not handled well, or even in a timely manner, by HR. The tenure mentioned in the 'Pros' section of this review can be a liability as much as a positive thing. Individuals who have very long tenures with the company (especially manager level and above) are not held to the same oversight or even corrective action plans as other employees, creating a fairness disparity between position levels.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork to recognize where the weak spots in your IT personnel support structure are, and hire additional employees to shore up these areas instead of increasing responsibilities and expectations on support groups that are already strained beyond their limits. Develop flexibility and speed in dealing with these issues.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
