    Gap Inc is starting to drop the ball

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    When I was hired, I was thrilled to be working for a company with values that I believe in. Gap Inc. prides itself in placing people and planet up there with profit, which was exciting to me.

    Cons

    During the pandemic, Gap Inc. has done NOTHING to support its field employees. We are in public every day with no extra compensation or additional time off for quarantining, vaccines, etc. Additionally, Gap just announced that it will be eliminating its Holiday Pay for field employees. When I was hired, I had six paid holidays (very important for me for a work life balance) - but Gap just announced the other day that as of May 1, 2021 that field employees will not receive paid holidays, and are still required to work 5 full days on a holiday week. I find this change disgraceful ESPECIALLY because of when and how it was announced to us. Field employees are the most important employees because without us, you don’t have your stores. Yet we have been treated like trash during this pandemic.

    Pros

    Challenging with growth mindset. the more you put in the more you get out of it. love the work life balance. company culture is a community of open and transparent employees who feel like family.

    Cons

    Work from home, not remote. pay is OKAY, enough to survive but hard to save. Additional hours during holiday season can be stressful but payout is better

    Pros

    Gap offers pretty good Work-Life Balance. (Pre-Covid the average day was 9/10 AM - 4 PM) In general, the company culture, values, and people you work with are great. Passionate and easy to get along with. They also have some good diversity initiatives, you feel like the company values diverse talent. The company is also surprising open to change and new technology, when you get the right key players involved. If you are competent, you can quickly rise up the ranks and get promotions and good annual merit award (bonus).

    Cons

    Lower end of TC (total compensation) because only salary; No stock until director level. There are some legacy systems, very corporate, and slow pace. Very mixed group of technical talent - some people are amazing and some give me the impression they can't code.
