    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren

    Pros

    The people, the discount, the fun work activities, the travel, the on site cafeteria, employee sales and location.great atmosphere!

    Cons

    Hard to move up. You work hard, but with no promotions. It's a let down to see years spent doing the same thing with no reward...(that's with having exceeds expectations) on every yearly review. Other than that, there is not much to complain about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coaching your best employees to help them move up and advance. Don't hold people back, because they are good employees.

  7.  

    Summer sales associate position was very demanding but a very professional environment.

    I have been working at Polo Ralph Lauren (less than a year)

    Pros

    As a sales associate you get 15 minute breaks that are paid for. Also, the store and other amenities are very clean and well maintained. Very reputable company so you know you are compensated fairly.

    Cons

    On-call work hours are difficult to plan schedule around because you may have to pick up shifts. The store location I worked at was very busy, especially on weekends so we never got those off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to reward, value and promote success of those that are working. When people do something well, let others know that because it makes employees feel valued.

    Pros

    Employee discount is great. Many great co workers to work with. A fun atmosphere to be in.

    Cons

    Job security. The company is now changing and splitting- either luxury or the new Polo. This cuts the market in half when they split the stores.
