I have been working at Sears full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good salaries. Okay autonomy and recognition. Bonuses are paid out.

Cons

Not sure of future company viability. I hear a lot of good internal pep talks, but it isn't making its way to the public. Consistent bad press hurts moral.

    I have been working at Sears full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many smart people (but it differs wildly based on the department) and it's a great place to get retail experience for all sorts of products. They physical location is a nice place to work.

    Cons

    A lot of fire drills, and very aggressive deadlines lead to less-than-ideal project rollouts. There are many IT issues that regularly impact ability to get work done. Overlapping functions across departments create political battles. Compensation OK but benefits are really horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline. The company is too complex. Fix the execution first so that customers and members get a better experience. And fix the benefits so that good people actually want to stay.

    Pros

    It's a paycheck, but there is better.

    Cons

    They try their best to own you--even as an hourly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to being a retail company--not a hedge fund.
