    Pros

    Employee discount is great. Many great co workers to work with. A fun atmosphere to be in.

    Cons

    Job security. The company is now changing and splitting- either luxury or the new Polo. This cuts the market in half when they split the stores.

    Pros

    beautiful clothing and fantastic discount (65% off)

    Cons

    only veteran employees make a salary worth noting, keeping up with your wardrobe (even with the discount) leaves little left over to pay bills, must stay weight appropriate and pedicured as you are working on a "stage" that shows the world what Ralph Laurens version of life should be.

    Advice to Management

    provide a basic wardrobe like Tory Burch does.

    Pros

    Never boring.
    Amazing Talent in company.
    Very diverse customer base.
    Great clothing + emp discount 30-50%.
    Can transfer for location or promotion.
    High pay bonus opportunity.

    Cons

    Mngrs avg 48hr wks in high volume locations, not compensated.

    Talent 'can be' under appreciated.

    Payroll consistently seems 15-25% less than workload. Does not reflect or support the high expectations.

    Advice to Management

    GM should lead by Example. Must be very 'hands on' to do this. Work a closing shift TWICE a week. Work an extra weekend. Work an overnight. Experience your teams various challenges 1st hand.

    BE approachable, or 'honest' communication shuts down.

    Verbal appreciation & encouragement are not limited like payroll, so 'Spend it'.

    Pros

    Hours, benefits, discounts, vacation time, the creativity, people, the diversity, travel. You work to live at this company, not live to work.

    Cons

    Salary range and raises are not as competitive as other companies. There is a lot of people involved in decision making. It is hard to climb a corporate ladder since all of the higher up execs have been with RL for a long time.

  9. Really fun!

    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren

    Pros

    Great company and people; strong business arm

    Cons

    Compensation does not increase as quickly as comparable companies

  11. I have been working at Polo Ralph Lauren

    Pros

    Pay is above average. The people love the brand that they work for. The customer relationships.

    Cons

    Business processes, efficiency is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    The required age is too low, we shouldn't have 16yo selling something that a mature demographic is buying.
