Pros

Culture in office is overall positive; good work/life balance. Benefits standard for large company. People are generally representative of the Nordstrom customer service culture.

Cons

Benefits and salary are below the competition they're trying to compete with locally (not retail). Unclear advancement paths and an unevenly skilled workforce.

Advice to Management

Support your doers. empower them to make decisions and not do everything by consensus. Fight for better benefits, salary and be forward thinking in how teams should manage their business/projects. Be less hierarchical.
