I worked at The Gap as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

- compensation is decent for the industry
- some flexibility in hours, they are usually understanding of personal emergencies
- great people, very friendly culture
- location offers decent transit accessibility and lunch options

Cons

- work is not creatively fulfilling
- sometimes there are periods of unreasonable overtime which may be uncompensated
- can get a bit clique-y (causes disruptive atmosphere)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management needs to get more involved in work of junior employees to understand who is doing good work. This will never happen, but: consider hiring more people to reduce workload to a reasonable level.
