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

    Pros

    Great group of associates that are like family

    Cons

    RJ is downsizing to the point that all of the good experienced associates are gone. Not only do they have bitter feelings, but they will be vocal to their friends, relatives and those customers they have built relationships with. So the 4-6 customers JCP loses times the number of "layoffs', the company is losing millions of dollars. And RJ doesn't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    RJ needs to do his homework before he embarks in his 'transformation". JCP is not a startup but a once respected institution that he is tearing apart one step at a time. While change was needed, he has not analyzed the impact of his decisions and it will doom the company.
