    I have been working at Ralph Lauren full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An amazing organization that is constantly adapting to grow and find new and innovative ways to not only support the business, but continue to support employees as well.

    For example, employees wanted more vacation, better benefits, new programs, etc. The company delivered increased PTO, better benefits, and an entire career development program. Upper management really listens to feedback on employee surveys and spends a lot of time, money, and effort analyzing the data and trying to make RL even better.

    Great ways to get involved in community service.

    A truly great company that makes you feel you are part of a family.

    Cons

    Some of the office spaces are beautiful, and others could use some revamping

    Advice to Management

    Great job of continuing to listen and adapt to employee feedback. You're on the right track!
