    Pros

    The networking is invaluable in itself when you work at Bed Bath. Job growth has no ceiling and they take care of their loyal employees. If you are lucky to have good management they are pro training and will take the time to help you advance. Numerous projects to give you experience within multiple different departments.

    Cons

    Infrastructure is poorly managed and staffed in key crucial areas. If you are up to wearing multiple hats you will succeed. If you just want to be a merchant this isnt the buying job for you. Depending on who your manager is you could fee like you work for the best or the absolute worst company. Company needs to get back to basics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring externally and take a good hard look at who you already have. Listen to your lower positions more about new processes that absolutely ridiculous, they are the ones who use them.
