Pros

Gap is an amazing company to work for. I have worked at Gap for 12 years and have had the opportunity to advance quickly. I have been able to relocate to other cities that I wanted to live in and I have worked with some of the smartest most highly skilled leaders in the retail business.

Cons

The expectations are very high and as a leader at Gap you must keep pace and find good balance in you leadership. You must drive solid results and lead and develop a strong team. This is difficult at times when business is tough.

Advice to Management

Keep the expectations high, those with the highest standards and want to work for Gap bad enough will rise up and deliver.

    Pros

    * Fun culture
    * Products are accessbile - just go to the mall
    * Lots of vacation - 4 weeks to start (although now there is required PTO during the year)
    * Good work life balance in some areas
    * Big company, so lots of jobs posted at HQ

    * Bonuses even in bad years

    Cons

    * No money for training, conferences, etc.
    * New hires making much more than loyal employees
    * Sometimes required to take PTO to help make numbers
    * No longer the home of the brightest and the best
    * Not results oriented, little accountability

    Advice to Management

    Too much redundancy at HQ - get leaner so that you can hire better people with the money you are saving. Stop thinking of everyone below the director level as disposable.
