I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good benefits, stability, some great people to work with.

Cons

Unfulfilling creatively (but that could have been limited to my department), a few superiors that were fantastic, and a few that did nothing, took credit for others' work, and got promotions for it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better oversight of management.

    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ralph Lauren is an solid and growing Consumer Goods/Luxury company and during my 8 years working at the corporate level (Senior Director of I.T._M&A_HR_L&D) I experienced growth, advancement and worked with (and in some cases) for some of the smartest and creative people I know. ...and don't even get me started on the Polo Perks! Amazing!

    Cons

    Like many companies, some Division run better then others, however Ralph Lauren Divisions (i.e., Menswear vs. Womenswear vs. I.T. vs. Finance vs. HR vs. Sourcing, etc.) tend to run is silos...very independent from each other. Call it the product of being 40+ old, having the "we have always done it this way" attitude, change and the conflict that comes with change is RL Corps biggest challenge. Again, you could have a division (i.e., I.T) that runds amazingly well, but then have a division (i.e., HR) that has broken processes, almost non-existent follow up and follow-through and at the end of the day you are only as strong as your weakest link.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix your HR division, put more time and thought into a PMO (Project Management Office).
