I worked at The Gap part-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Associates are some of the best people I have worked with. Some of the best friends that i will remember work for this company. I will miss them greatly!

Cons

Gap, Old Navy and Banana cards have very high interest. The Interest is somewhere between 26% and ridiculous. They demand that their employees sell these cards as a reward for shopping at the stores. The quality of the clothing has also declined over the years. This is why the company is doing so poorly. Managers are not being trained properly. Neither are the new employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a new CEO! Glenn Murphy entered the company without any fashion experience. I saw a report on the internet that criticized him extensively for his lack of knowledge regarding fashion. If you notice, Gap comes out with the same styles every year. The don't change up!

    I have been working at The Gap full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Gap has great work/life balance. The work attire is casual with a motto of "You be You" which makes it great to work. The company also has a great flex work program called "R.O.W.E" which allows you to work when you are most productive and allows you to work from home. This is a great program!

    Cons

    The pay at Gap Inc. is not the best. Also, making decisions at Gap take forever, and as analyst you find yourself doing rework.
