    I worked at Gap full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    None whatsoever. It's a job.

    Cons

    I worked at the fulfillment center in Ohio for GID IT. The IT department is headed by a bunch of incompetent people who hire the worst of the worst. The business practices, pay, and everything in between was lousy. In this fulfillment center they treated their IT staff like expendable peons instead of the intelligent solution employees we were. Our team was responsible for overseeing the other centers and offering support. Often times these centers were staffed by IT supervisors who should have never been hired to begin with. The poor techs working under them were forced to work odd shifts, starting very early (even earlier during peak). Little notice was given. No training of any kind. No room for advancement and low pay.

    Stay away from GAP INC DIRECT. It will hurt your career.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone and start over.

    I have been working at Gap full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very stable, great people, nice building, good benefits.

    Cons

    Very little movement, job advances seem to follow life advances, i.e. need a promotion? have a child or get married. Nobody is fired ever, even for gross incompetence. Working there you have no control over whether or not the khakis sell, but your bonus is based on it. Let's just say it's frustrating when you see a bunch of ugly holiday clothes and know you're going to miss bonus no matter how hard you work.

    Advice to Management

    Fire people sometimes. Change the bonus structure to penalize self-indulgent designers not the hard-working people everywhere else.
