    I worked at Banana Republic part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generous discount, fun co-workers. Now you can wear jeans to work - when I was there you had to pair jeans with a blazer.

    Cons

    Dress code was the hardest when moving the displays, but now they've relaxed it. Customer service is tough during the holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Little treats during the holiday season for employees would go a LONG way. Cookies or gift cards for coffee/lunch spots. Nothing fancy - just know how mean people can be during the "giving season."
