I worked at Macy's full-time for more than a year

Pros

Prestige and convenience of commute

Cons

After a restructuring in 2009-2010 there was a distinct culture clash between the Systems group based in GA & any IT folks in NYC. The approach to projects and dealing with business users was different and it didn't seem like GA cared to adapt or adopt any of the methods in place in NYC.

    Pros

    The Visual manager is excellent and extremely helpful. She cares about her team and is genuinely interested in their futures and current situations.

    Cons

    None of the other departments really communicate with the Visual team. It seams like the visual team operates independently from the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication between all departments.
