Pros

Company values employees' opinions and suggestions
Family-like atmosphere
No competitiveness between associates

Cons

Wish the employee discount was 50% off for regular prices shoes, not just 30% off.
Employees can't be a part of DSW Rewards.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It'd be cool if the store management could provide more food options for the employees.

    Pros

    Pay is OK, absollutley no upword movingment in IT ... you have to be in the 'old boys' network

    Cons

    I could write a book about all of the cons. No training, a lack of professionalism, HR is also a joke, the CIO ... give me a break, he couldn't cut his teeth at any other place. I head he failed at the last three of four places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at DSW full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    DSW's customers are exceptional--they are passionate about shoes and fashion. As a result, DSW's customers become passionate about DSW. DSW engages its customers really well in stores, online, in social media and spreads the "shoe love." I love talking to new people and dropping that I work for DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse--the reactions are delightful.

    Cons

    DSW is still growing up: It went public in 2005 and replaced/add mast all of its senior management at that time. Now, management is really hitting its stride. However, like other organizations, DSW struggles with bringing about change and improvements in business practices. Also, internal professional development is good, but still a work-in-progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay strong on reinforcing DSW's company values--lead by example. Be willing to keep investing in growing and training new and developing managers.
