Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

- Smart IT people
- Savvy business users who get e-commerce
- Your work will be seen by millions of people

Cons

- Senior IT management acts interested in suggestions, but real change is rare
- Super political atmosphere at the management level, no matter what they tell you during the interview
- Task estimates are ignored in favor of arbitrary deadlines, resulting in rushed delivery and mediocre quality

Advice to Management

Listen to the experts you hire. They're there to help you build a great product. Your fear of trying new things and lack of real responses to criticisms have stifled innovation and made A&F a pretty uncomfortable place for IT people to work.
