I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

good company in it's glory days. Still great place to work and good environment. Compensation was moderate to average. Nice company perks (discounts).

Cons

lots of change, almost overwhelming. Company is struggling and initiating huge amounts of change. somewhat chaotic due to changes and not everyone being on same page.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change is tough, but is necessary. Vision with passion = success!
