    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    beautiful clothing and fantastic discount (65% off)

    Cons

    only veteran employees make a salary worth noting, keeping up with your wardrobe (even with the discount) leaves little left over to pay bills, must stay weight appropriate and pedicured as you are working on a "stage" that shows the world what Ralph Laurens version of life should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide a basic wardrobe like Tory Burch does.

    The discount and the location of the store on madison avenue. Plenty of good shop and eating around there.

    Sometimes it gets very busy and the clients have weird requests but other than that I love working there

    I have been working at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hours, benefits, discounts, vacation time, the creativity, people, the diversity, travel. You work to live at this company, not live to work.

    Cons

    Salary range and raises are not as competitive as other companies. There is a lot of people involved in decision making. It is hard to climb a corporate ladder since all of the higher up execs have been with RL for a long time.

    I have been working at Polo Ralph Lauren

    Pros

    Pay is above average. The people love the brand that they work for. The customer relationships.

    Cons

    Business processes, efficiency is lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The required age is too low, we shouldn't have 16yo selling something that a mature demographic is buying.
