    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Gap full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pretty Good Benefits, Outstanding Art Collection, Beautiful Headquarters in fine location

    Cons

    Large Bureaucracy, Top Down Management Style (if a business solution does not emanate from the top, then it does not exist). You will cringe at what you see.

    Advice to Management

    Advice is not ever sought nor wanted by Gap leadership, but if it was, my best advice would be to break up Company into at least 3 separate public Companies (Old Navy should be completely separate from all others).

    I worked at Gap full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great discount, health benefits, excellent training

    Cons

    Time management system is extremely stressful for employees. 30 seconds late for a lunch break can cause serious consequences. The pay was pretty low for the level of commitment required.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Gap full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Managers are helpful, but strapped to the policies of the Executive team
    - Discounts on merchandise (if you can afford it with your poor pay)
    - Nice coworkers

    Cons

    - Long hours for little pay
    - Treat employees like they're easily replaceable
    - Disorganized processes for hiring/promotions
    - Was offered something that was then taken away
    - Poor HR communication skills

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.
