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

    Pros

    The people are great. Very communal workplace. Everyone in the office was very friendly. Everyone was very willing to help me get up to speed when I joined the team.

    Cons

    Doesn't feel like there is a lot of room for upward movement. Compensation was a little low for the position. Other than that, hard to say that there was anything that I was really dissatisfied with.

    Legendary brand. Great workplace for stoic, die hard fans of poor planning and immediate execution of changes every min

    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren

    Pros

    Competitive salary. Iconic Brand with loyal customer base. Opportunity for growth if willing to travel and move frequently. You make your own way through personal relationships if you make yourself known. Company built on great values, but decisions don't follow them.

    Cons

    Complicated training process for new hires. No recruiting structure to support stores with great candidates. Muddled time and attendance policy. Stores always playing catch up after poor planning and sluggish decision making from the corporate offices. Totally reactive environment that at the same time challenges you to be pro-active. LOL. Video shops are not a tool for anything.
