    Great place to work with some great people. New strategy won't work.

    I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There used to be extremely smart and experienced retail people that worked there. The new management has gutted the place in the past 8-10 months so this may not be the case now.

    Cons

    Bad managers at all levels - actually gets worse as you go down the management chain
    Too much politics between the managers in different departments in order to get work done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Common sense should prevail in the decision making process
    JCP is not Target and it certainly is not Apple!!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Work hard and fast with no down time. So be able to commit.
