Fun but disconnected

Sales Associate (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsDiscount, working with a team, fun environment, upbeat

ConsNew management, disconnect with employees and mgmt.,

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen the new management came in it seemed like they had some great ideas but no way of expressing them: this led to the disconnect of sales associates and the rest of the team. The new manager that came in while I was there did not know how to communicate with their employees and, although I know they were only trying to help, communicated with us in a rude way that did not promote positive work in some people.

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

    Mostly incredible, but it is full of politics, bureaucracy, and a fear of new big ideas.

    I worked at The Gap full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Great people, strong ideas, great community investment, management likes to leveraging dynamic… Cons: Big, big, big egos, often a lack of team spirit, very hierarchical, often pay lip service to new ideas and… Advice to Senior Management: Level the business. Too much middle management creating bureaucracy, far too much hierarchy,… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
