    Pros

    The company has REC meeting where everyone cheers really loud and smiles

    Cons

    This company does not look our for its employees. There is very little support for the store associates and the Human Resources department is the worst I have seen. Its interesting to listen to the Share Holder Calls, I always wondered what Nordstrom company they are talking about. The Loss Prevention Program is also a complete joke and the Divisionals and the VP Tony Black have no idea how to manage their program. To summarize it, it pretty much comes down to Lip Service from them. They can not be trusted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train and backup your associates. Don't dump every decision on HR as they are former sales floor managers and have no idea themselves what they are talking about. Stop the lip service and back your LP managers. Replaced Tony Black with someone who has some idea what he is talking about. Get rid of the LP ranking report, it does not reflect your talent.

    Pros

    they will sort of let you "build your own business" to the extent that it fits in with their pre-defined classic corporate structure.

    Cons

    Lack of support of management. Executives have absolutely no idea of the dishonesty, nepotism, and harassment that occurs within the photo and advertising department. Directors are too embedded and protected and they paint a rosy picture for the exec team. It's a mess. This company likes to paint the picture that they're a wonderful company to work for, but if you drill down for honest feedback of those who contribute on a daily production level, you're going to find a disheartened bunch. There is also a general fear to report to HR since HR is typically there to support the director levels and not the middle management or individual contributors. One of the most dishonest experiences of my entire professional career.
