I have been working at Polo Ralph Lauren

Pros

Not a bad place to work if you need a 2nd part-time job, very relaxing work environment and not very stressful. Management is easy-going and willing to work with you if you had any issues or need time off. Great discount for a quality clothing line if you are an employee.

Cons

Not great pay, like any retail store your enjoyment can depend on how you are treated by customers, only get 15-19 hours for part-time. Work usually very repetitious.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut down the staff sizes, hire a few more full-time employees or give more than 20 hours a week to part-time employees who have proven to be reliable and give them in the range of 30-35. You only need to have extra staff readily available on the weekends. So you could give your reliable employees more hours during the week

    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren

    Pros

    This is a very balanced environment between business and personal growth. Opportunities are available for those willing to step up.

    Cons

    A very conservative approach to business change however in the end needed change does take place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the outstanding business model that has made PRL successful and put in place a profit sharing model for all associates.

    I have been working at Polo Ralph Lauren

    Pros

    Mainly the people as its a young workforce in Geneva. Work/Social life is balanced if you wish it. Benefits include discounts on clothes, travel and lunch subsidy.

    Cons

    Management in ALL areas e.g. HR, Supply Chain, IT, etc are incompetant and only look at their bonus. Progress is only provided if you're willing to be obedient to your managers every command and perform a 12 hour day. Performance reviews and appraisals are not worth the Apple ipad they are written on by Directors and there is little or no training. All Directors are equivalent to Team Leaders in other companies and their lack of experience and people management are evident within the first week. As no formal qualifications are required for any roles, Directors are intellectually weak and only stay at the company for the bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look further than your bonus and reward staff who actually do their job between the working hours of 9-6pm. Any one who need 12 hours per day is obviously incompetant. Act more professional and stop employing people through your own family tree who are unqualified to perform the task but on higher wages than people who have been there for 5 years.
