    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you compare it to other brands is less competitive, and the salarie is also higher.

    Cons

    You don't get big discounts or any economical help from the company to purchase their clothes to at least upgrade your closet with the new colections.

    Advice to Management

    Marketing approach needs to evolve to be able to keep on track with the big companies .

    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture is amazing. The people are great and it feels like everyone knows each other and actually want to get to know you. The benefits and time off are also great. The events/happy hours/etc. that they hold throughout the year are a great bonus as well.

    Cons

    The work life balance needs some adjusting. Not all departments are equal but most arrive at 8am and stay until 6pm or later on a daily basis. You can work independently with your manager/team if you need time off or need to come in late/leave early but the expectation to work 8-6 is brutal sometimes. The pay is okay but also seems low based on what other information is out there. Make sure and negotiate before you accept!

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Make sure you negotiate good in the beginning.
    The culture here is what makes this place a great place to work. People are extremely great to get a long with, and there is fantastic room for growth. The company is certainly headed in the right direction. Do your work, leave the drama to yourself and you will be incredibly successful

    Cons

    Sometimes the random lay off of someone can start a cause for concern, which is valid. I would say let the employees who have no clue why such things happened, to let those who are concerned feel comfortable.

    Advice to Management

    When the new hire begins, provide more detailed training. I find it helpful to explain roles and responsibilities in the beginning which makes the employee a lot more effective.
