    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Loved the employee discount and the majority of people who work there!

    Cons

    Lots of spend in ridiculous areas - very antiquated IT systems that caused a loss of productivity. Very little on-going maintenance support for a bunch of their stuff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to EVERYONE. Just because you hire an "expert" doesn't mean they know everything! People down the chain should have a voice, be informed and...be heard. Don't just sweep the bad employee reviews under the rug. Also, implement career pathing. Some groups did it very well others, not so much.

    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very structured organized internship program offered, lots of activities offered that I would actually go to (Mets baseball game, Free admission to see Punk Chaos at The Met, etc), the design branch is a block from Central Park which is great for lunch, get to see all the inter workings of how a large corporation works

    Cons

    Since I've graduated and am job searching, they have not been very helpful or shown interest in me working there.
