    Pros

    Good people, learn sales tactics, room to grow if you want, DISCOUNT

    Cons

    Micro-manage depending on your dept manager. Not a lot of growth if you don't want to go into management.

    Pros

    Nordstrom is determined to be a leader in the industry. They already have customer service and full price sales figured out. They're working hard to improve the rest. The tech team has struggles, but they're working through it- not just driving hard down the wrong path. I feel good working for Nordstrom.

    Cons

    The technology has a long way to go. The systems are old and homegrown. Tech leadership is in flux and always seems to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving. We're not there yet, but I'm optimistic!
