Really good company...just not a really good company to be employed with.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Menomonee Falls, WI

ProsREALLY good health benefits, 401(k) matching program and shares of stock. Good work/life balance and friendly people. Care a lot about the community and giving back.

ConsExtremely political, communication between departments is terrible, managers do nothing to develop their people (or support career advancement) unless you are a Merchant Analyst or Assistant Buyer - any other position (upper or lower) and they could care less. Culture is extremely political. Company does not appreciate new ideas and thinking outside of the box. There is a hierarchy and it is strictly followed - do not speak up unless you are directly asked. There is a HUGE lack of diversity and segmenting throughout the company, and 90% of middle- to upper-management are male.

Advice to Senior ManagementHR needs to spend more time talking to the employees at all levels instead of just upper management. A real plan to develop and promote internal moves is really needed instead of a band-aid program to satisfy horrible results in employee reviews.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall a good experience but very mundane

    Store Manager (Former Employee)

    I worked at Kohl's as an intern for less than a year


    Pros: Positive team environment Opportunities to network with top senior management Very clear corporate… Cons: Poor senior leadership People ahead of you in the corporate structure being fearful of you surpassing them and trying to hold you back Terrible… Advice to Senior Management: Your interns are an asset, not your competition No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
