    Pros

    The company has a great entry-level training program and is a good place to start a career. Strong college recruiting program provides smooth transition from college to buying offices for new hires. Structured opportunities for advancement for merchants. Nice emphasis on work/life balance.

    Cons

    Corporate downsizing and challenging retail environment. Would be a great place to work if sales were strong and layoffs were not likely. Unfortunately, costs must be cut when sales goals are not met. The company experienced a difficult integration of May Co and has not rebounded since. In future, buying offices may consolidate and centralize in order to push overhead costs down to remain competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the communications between Senior Management and employees.

    Pros

    Good if you relocate frequently. Their is plenty of teaching events from the main office that keep you up-to-date on new trends and managing skills.

    Cons

    A lot of red tape, Senior management can act harshly towards subordinates. There is a big gap between different levels of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to ideas, get away from the norm. Try to understand your employees better instead of treating subordinates like robots. And hire some more men!
