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

Pros

Gap has maintained the values and culture of Don and Doris Fisher. Great place to work. Fun work enviornment. Good growth internationally.

Cons

Can't stay ahead of the fashion curve. Plays catch up. Has lost some of creativity it used have. Finds it way, then loses it, then finds it....

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too much Bureaucracy. Too much social cohesion. Balance the value of working together, and not dumbing down programs so that everyone has "buy in." Be more bold.

    Pros

    Gap has an awesome sense of social responsibility and that extends not just to their communities but also to their employees. The benefits are great. Furthermore, the company is very well managed.

    Cons

    Expectations are very high and it's great if you love a challenge, but it's awful if you aren't a good fit in your role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for the great work!

    Cons

    nothing much, just that the pay could be better, considering the fact that its a top-notch company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay as we are working at one of the most expensive cities. Upgrade existing systems-they are too slow for such a huge company.
