    I have been working at Macy's


    flex hours, nice people, interesting projects, great team spirit, good training, enthusiastic leadership, good work life balance, caring management, good career path, new office building, good commute options, employee discount


    too many layers of management, hard to find a contact for needed information to complete a project, salary not competitive in the marketplace leading to many openings not filled on a timely basis, need better co-operations from managers/directors competing for the same projects(dollars),

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need better communication and co-operation between MCOM and MST. Need to reward high performers with better raises so we are not losing them in this competitive market. We spent too much time training new people to come up to speed only to lose them and take away all the business knowledge with them.
