    Pros

    You can build retail, marketing, and corporate experiences.

    Cons

    - High politics between co-workers, managers, departments - Combined 3 people jobs into 1 position= working through lunch hour, staying late, over time hours on the weekend, no time to take compensation hours or vacation - At least 3 meetings on one day - Gossip between women. (90% of this company is women) - Managers who does not have power or knowledge of about the job move up to higher positions - Miscommunications, no communication between vendors, different departments and corporate.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great salary and advancement opportunity, excellent benefits

    Cons

    You have to know how to network, wait in line for quite some time for the chance to advance, and the HR liasons are supposed to be there to help you but you never hear from them and they are terrible at follow up.....and if you do figure out the system, you will quite possibly be overlooked for someone coming in from the outside.

    Advice to Management

    Specific career plans, stop bringing in outside people in lieu of promoting from within.
