I have been working at The Gap full-time

Pros

Ability to work with lots of cool technology on some huge scale, international projects.

Cons

Too many consultants in every part of the tech organization.
Too many manager roles involved in agile projects; they're not agile projects anymore!
Some parts of the organization are resistant to change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve the employee to consultant mix by rewarding employees through more competitive salaries and perks; you've fallen way behind the Bay Area tech companies.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good, and the company cares about you.

    Cons

    Like many companies, they make you do more with less, which can either be looked at as job security, or being overworked or exploited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the management team the same way you treat the associates. Work with them, guide them, and help them get to the next level.
