    I have been working at Nordstrom

    Pros

    Everyone on the ladder is accessible. From the first day you start, you have the ability to contact anyone all the way up to Mr. Blake Nordstrom. I have had a few friendly conversations with him myself and he is such a genuinely nice person. It seems most of the upper managers are. Also, they truly value every position. They treat the person folding merchandise to be shipped the same as the person selling $1,000 handbags.

    Cons

    Since they are so fond of advancing careers, some people get automatically promoted with little notice. Usually it is a good thing, but sometime it can leave you with inexperienced management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the idea of "best judgement." Also, with so many policies on the right way things should be done, we should be thoroughly trained. It feels like the main way we learn is only when mistakes are made.
