    Pros

    Macys, as a culture, is a great American Icon. I was proud of it's history and it's work with charities. I loved working with the customers and developing my team. The sales team are a great group of people and have so much talent to offer.

    Cons

    It doesn't matter how amazing you were on a particular day or event, there was always something more that you missed. As managers, we are taught "engagement" but very little of it comes from senior management. The stress to hit numbers is incredibly high without the compensation to back it up.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the walk. You teach your managers to celebrate the employees, but managers are not celebrated. You emphasize teamwork, but give no opportunity for sales managers to get together with others from the district to talk about best practices. There is too much filter from the district team through the VPSM to the managers. DMs should be more present in every store, not just the high volume stores.


  2. Long hours
