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

    Pros

    Worked at Gap HQ in NYC for over 8 years. Amazing place to work. Great benefits, people, brand pride. Like all companies in retail, there are some crazy times- but it's all manageable and worth it. Very proud to be a Gap veteran.

    Cons

    A lot of organizational changes make it hard to keep your rhythm. But this is common in the ever changing retail environment.

    Pros

    Brand value and Work life balance

    Cons

    Gap Inc is in the process of establishing this IT wing in India. Initial hick-ups are common everywhere. But this company is definitely struggling badly because of inexperienced management and incapable HR team.

    • Horrible HR policies and incapable HR team.
    • HR team changes the policies very frequently and making the working environment miserable.
    • Role structure and recruitment process are aberrant.
    • A guy in the HR team is extremely unprofessional and unethical because of his attitude.
    • Senior Management play lot of politics and they behave like monarchs.

    Advice to Management

    This organization definitely need experienced senior management(Director and above) and of course you need to revamp the complete HR team.

    Advice to HR and senior management : Don't play politics with your incapable skills and dont spoil Gap's brand name.

    I have been working at Gap Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cool Atmosphere, Open culture, Its good to work for an American MNC, good perks, benefits and sales are the good reason to be associated.

    Cons

    Office politics, unreal goals, no holistic development. The top managerial level and the director level were actually the culprit unnecessary pressure.
    May be its specifically for my Team(MST). They are now firing on role employees to hire more contractual employees at low wages

    Advice to Management

    Stop Divide and rule policies.
