    I worked at Gildan Activewear full-time

    Pros

    Company is having good growth opportunities in it's many acquisitions.

    Cons

    The IT infrastructure is so fragmented. Too many systems. Corp needs to integrate these extra IT systems more expeditiously. Reporting is poor. Rely too much in excel in analyzing or developing Mgt. reports.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your IT systems!!! So that these fragmented systems from the past company's acquired can be integrated into one reporting system. Invest in better reporting software, i.e. Crystal or Business Objects then using Hyperion excel.
