I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

This is in the past: "Some of the reasons that the company had so many long serving associates is because of the fairness in the way it treats the associates and its customers. The change in leadership brought many changes in the organisation, while the promise to transform the company is a step in the right direction, very many experienced management associates were laid off, leaving a lack of management to help carry out this transformation.

Cons

Politics play a big part in your performance. Change in management means all your past contributions count for nothing in consideration for promotions or lay offs.

Advice to Management

Go down and listen to the working class of associates instead of listening to gatekeepers give nice and polished reports which is far from reality.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Lots of changes, newness and excitement - CEO has alot of different ideas that could be great - Pay was good under old management, not sure how it compares now

    Cons

    - With new CEO and changes, layoffs of at least 1200 at the home office alone. - With the changes, lots of uncertainty - Layoffs of people because of old school mentality, if your not open and willing to do what they want, you will be let go - Benefits got worse during my 10 year career, hopefully that changes with new management

    Advice to Management

    Consider your people before just laying them all off, then posting positions that you could have put them in.

    I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive Salary, beautiful building and facilities.

    Cons

    A now very stressful place to work where you are constantly looking over your shoulder.

    Advice to Management

    Changing too many things at once to simplify business. Cutting so many employees and reverting to old practices is overwhelming people at work.
