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

Pros

-Great multi-brand discount
-Emphasis on "you be you" and showing unique personality
-Fantastic benefits and incentives for management
-Generous meals and breaks
-Focus on making work culture fun

Cons

-Corporate ideas and policies that are good in theory often are not as good in practice and difficult to execute
-Recent upper management restructuring has left the advancement path unclear after the level of store manager

Overall, this company really cares about it's employees and takes very good care of them. I have worked for 3 other major retail companies and this one is BY FAR the best.

Advice to Management

Corporate needs more interaction with store level. There have been many new ideas come down the pipeline that all of us at the store level knew wouldn't work the way corporate planned and they didn't. More communication with store level could save the company time and money. Your ideas are always great, but real world execution doesn't work the same as a test store.
