Pros

One of the most successful retailers period
Senior leadership is very accessible
People are great to work with
Compensation and benefits are very competitive

Cons

Lots of politics
Promotions can take a long time and there doesn't seem to be too much of a rhyme or reason as to who gets them and when
The organization is very functionally siloed

Advice to Management

Create leaders that have a breadth of experience, not just in one area of the business

    Advice to Management

    When hiring someone for a senior leadership position, give them a trial period or only sign them for one year. That way you can get rid of a BIG problem QUICKLY.
