    Current Employee - Business Analyst in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Nordstrom

    Pros

    Incredible growth in the technology areas. Expectation to work smart & dedicated to work/life balance (not just lip service). Flexible schedule & most really enjoy coming to work. Consistent recognition for contributors. Focused on growing internal people, but smart enough to know when to go outside for expertise.

    Cons

    Most benefits are good (love the discount), but personal time off is really lagging. I’m guessing it’s because they come from a retail background. To retain top IT talent, they’ll need to look at this policy.

    Pros

    Much room for career advancement if you're willing to stick it out, HR dept if there are any issues, employee discount is not too bad

    Cons

    Commission environment is difficult considering Nordstrom return policy, returns hit the employee for up to a year. Sometimes and often you cannot control the costumers abuse of the return policy
