I worked at Macy's full-time

Pros

-Room for career advancement for ambitious, successful managers
-Compensation and benefits are fair and raises/bonuses are performance based
-Autonomous work environment allows you to develop your personal management style
-Friendly, diverse and open work environment

Cons

-Work life balance in retail management is tough and doesn't get better when looking for career advancement
-Little follow through and feedback from upper management on the practices that are supposed to grow the company
-"Drama" and "gossip"
-pushed to open credit accounts with many customers who probably can't afford it and shouldn't be using credit

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Spend more time teaching and following up on company directives that are designed to grow the business and the quality of managers/employees
-Upgrade the database system so that Sales Managers can easily find the information needed to affect their business
-drop the "cheesy" slogans and give associates honest and direct feedback
