    Pros

    Great working environments
    Great management
    Creative and innovative retail
    Good employee discounts
    Coherence in most of the stores in New York City

    Cons

    No cons. Devote yourself in this job and don't complain. Just like Nigel tells Andrea to quit when she keeps whining about Miranda, if you only deign to work, then you need to find another job and you'll probably still complain everything by posting some negative reviews here.

    Pros

    Fantastic environment to work in. Managers are all very passionate about the shop.

    Cons

    The only thing I can think of is the weekend hours, but that is obviously industry standard across most retail.

    I worked at J. Crew full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Transparent leadership and involvement throughout company, takes action quickly and reasonably, pays higher than competitor's average, great benefits on day one, ample opportunities for bonuses; both financially and through free clothes; etc.

    Cons

    The only con I have is that it is a retailer and it is no secret that the industry is changing, therefore companies must change with it. That said, J. Crew has done a good job with staying on top of what they can control: namely employee morale, competitive sales, and outreach.

    Advice to Management

    I was pleased with my experience at J. Crew; I only left due to having to relocate.
