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

    Pros

    The company is always about doing what is right for its people. There is a high level of transparency with leaders and large number of opportunities for talents to move from one brand to another, as well as to corporate level. With a strong culture, there are long-tenured leaders who continues to add value and drive business to success.

    Cons

    The company values collaboration which sometimes, may require a longer timeline to implement some projects. Yet, the outcome is always of high quality and changes are sustainable.

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you are doing as it is awesome!
