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 Management

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

    Pros

    Team-oriented, team and individual accomplishments celebrated, good discounts, first to see clearance markdowns, special employee extra % off plus discount events, opportunity to participate in charity work

    Cons

    pressure to sign customers up for JCP credit card, not always enough staffing during holiday peaks

    Advice to Management

    go back to the old jcpenney, give employees commission back for old commissioned departments, remember to appreciate and thank associates across all levels from cashiers to store managers to district and corporate level

    Pros

    Aggressively searches for new talent. Career advancement opportunities are available.

    Cons

    If upper management hasn't recognized your abilities you can get lost and forgotten when opportunities come.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor upper management and incentive them to mentor employee's.
