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 ManagementAdvice

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.

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

    Pros

    People you work with are good. The company provides good benefits for their employees. Use to be a great place you would want to retire at.

    Cons

    New direction of the company and attitude of new executives. New management does not care about its employees. Their decisions and actions are not in line with what they say to the employees in meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about your employees not just of top management and their financial being.

    Former Employee - Marketing Assistant in Plano, TX
    Former Employee - Marketing Assistant in Plano, TX

    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 ManagementAdvice

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