Pros

Training is exceptional, Great company to get your feet wet and develop skills in the loss prevention side. They are great recognition programs for employee level positions (lack in management recognition). Information is available to all on the company website for all departments and tools are given on these websites for use (if you know how to navigate your way through the website).

Cons

Lack of moving up, unfairness with pay. Hit a glass ceiling at middle management, lack of communication between stores and corp offices. Low morale within the stores and departments. There is lack of ownership among store management. Work/life balance is hard, a lot is expected with little or no compensation or appreciation.

Advice to Management

If there are not immediate advancement opportunities for management, I would suggest about every 3-5 years moving or making changes in lateral moves to keep the position or manager from becoming stagnant. This will keep your talented people happy, the fire/energy going which in turns produces better results until opportunities open. This will also retain your talented people to stay on board.

    Pros

    work life balance. Training for the BDP squad is great, otherwise prepare to receive little to no training for your position.

    Cons

    Compensation is low. Increases are insulting. macy's is a very "young" company with many inexperienced middle managers. Strong performance has no bearing on advancement. Managers and HR reps develop employee development plans with no regard to the individual's career desires. This is not negotiable.

    Advice to Management

    give your employees the "tools" needed to complete their jobs. Pay for talent and focus on employee retention. make goals and objectives realistic. many are based on sales/measures outside of the employee's control.


  2. Good Luck! Larger Macy's stores seem to have a higher morale and supervisor competence than the smaller ones.

    Pros

    Employee discounts, especially when items are already on sale!

    Cons

    Depending on your luck, the management I had to deal with was non-responsive and underqualified. There is always a push for opening credit cards. As a consumer, I LOVE Macys, but as an employee at the particular store I was at, the comraderie and support was lacking, as well as supervision. People would just leave on breaks for hours and come back to clock out.

    Advice to Management

    If an employee comes to you with concerns, ADDRESS them and don't ignore them. If you're not sure how to address it, at the very least acknowledge the concern and ask for help.
