    Pros

    some pros are you can easily offer your shift , swap shifts or pickup shifts on line .

    Cons

    some of the cons to working at Macy's is the schedule picking. everything is done online if you're temporary or flex.

    Pros

    People here are beyond awesome. Absolute pleasure to work with anyone on the creative team here. Would recommend to anyone.

    Cons

    they don't always give you products you are familiar with. Still, a great company to write copy for.

    Advice to Management

    Work on corporate structure a little more and notify of plans. People have no idea what goes on some times.

    I have been working at Macy's (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, work-life balance, competitive pay, amazing staff, convenient office location, good hours. Ability to move within the organization.

    Cons

    Macys recently merged the dot-com and brick and mortar buying offices. The transition has been rocky to say the least. There has been a lot of recent turnover, and employees are feeling undervalued at all levels.

    Advice to Management

    Management should reorganize the company so that there is a more definitive job structure. The employees want to feel vital to the buying process at all levels.
