Pros

You get to leave to a better position elsewhere!

Cons

As a previous individual stated "Be careful about taking a job in the corp. office! The position I took paid well, but the management and culture were horrific!! Management treats their people very poorly and turnover is high in many departments. If you look on their website there are always TONS of jobs available. Wondering why? Because Bed Bath does not value their people....Just like anything, if you think something is too good to be true, it probably is....It was easy to get hired at a good salary, putting up with the bosses and culture you have to work in...not so easy." To add, the management are clueless, you have one that during an interview, will rudely interrupt you without reason. I have no idea how this person got the position, oh wait, he worked at the same company as the greasy man above him! Cronyism is alive and well here. You have people slogging through the wrong technology attempting to do something that is relatively simple and they are adamant about it. There is a high attrition rate, and I have no doubt why. The culture is atrocious and you are peppered with ridiculous rules and management does NOT value your skills, they like to act like blowhards and pompous buffoons. I suppose this is the part in which they excel. If you have extensive experience, they will trounce you in order to make themselves feel better. They also poorly use SCRUM methodologies. I never seen groups that speak about parts of projects that have nothing to do with one another. I can attest, that the negatives that others state are only the tip of the iceberg. Your position would be in flux, you might as well call yourself a CEO since your title and position would not reflect properly what you do. I hold the CEO accountable, because the culture reflects upon him. If I were him, I would purge management and start over. A very dissatisfying company! Go elsewhere, there are many companies out there and particularly within IT that are a thousand times better. You have been warned.

    Pros

    Excellent in-store training, with monthly product knowledge classes for everyone. Advanced technology. Company isists that asociates always gives excellent customer service.

    Cons

    Less than professional behavior from regional staff when visiting stores. The turnover is horrendous but seems to be getting better, most likely due to the economy. The company has a lot to offer, if they would just treat their management better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Send upper management to HR classes. They have to learn to be professional.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    It was a good experience, but when promoted from within, I got really screwed with the raises.

    Pros

    They follow a Pass the Buck mentality with Open Door philosophy, makes it easy to ask questions and communicate with upper management.

    Cons

    Management usually acts as coverage on the floor, so there is very little "managing" and more "doing" involved.
