Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager of Operations

I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Internal promotion; big company that feels small; great Director of Stores; entrepreneurial culture; hard work pays off.

Cons

Lack of consistent vision; no diversity; hard to move through poor talent; Central leaders have bloated egos and rarely deliver what is needed to support the stores; office politics derail from the greater good.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's

    Pros

    Salary, discount, professional, a good place for simple minded people with a true passion for retail

    Cons

    Technology is terrible ( broken and antiquated systems), uninspiring leadership with no clear direction - very flavor of the week. Little room for growth after one or two promotions. Political and haphazard culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the incessant promotions...they're meaningless. Focus energy on a few special occasion sales and making your people feel special, not disposable. It's retail, not rocket science...simplicity works.
