    Update your older stores and continue to improve. also work on bring back GAP logo items for adults they are big sellers.

    Current Employee - Finance Manager in San Francisco, CA
    Current Employee - Finance Manager in San Francisco, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    ROWE - recently launched HR program that focuses on business results versus facetime in the office - allows flexible working arrangement.
    Exposure to leadership - if you are an individual contributor, you get opportunity to present to upper mgmt which builds your communication skillset
    Vacation - 4 wks of vacation every year!
    Opportunity to spiderweb - flexibility to move into various roles in the organization

    Cons

    Politics - company is very political and there is lots of favoritism. People get promoted who have track record of being horrible mgrs but have kissed assed to upper mgmt.
    Lack of leadership - given lackluster results, lots of leadership spin and lack of guidance. Leadership is so focused on week to week sales which is no longer making the job fun. Sometimes can be a very directive culture versus empowering culture.
    Pay - pay is subpar and once you are in, challenging to increase your pay even if you get promoted (usually 10% increase)
    Not motivating environment - given all the above reason, morale is low and employees are not engaged.

    Advice to Management

    People - Stop playing favorites. Have an objective and fair promotion policy. Focus on development employees and creating strong leaders. Good talent is leaving the company and leadership needs to determine why and address solutions to motive and retain good folks.

    Product wise - need to design exciting product that resonates with customers and bringing traffic back! Know your customers!
