    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Sears full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Due to recent struggles, SHC is very open to new ideas an innovations that could be potential moneymakers. This allows it to operate in some ways like a start-up company, and make it an attractive place for people who want to try new things.

    Cons

    It's still Sears, and it hasn't quite overcome the negative view people have of shopping at Sears or Kmart. Due to its size and age, too often SHC office politics interfere and cause the company to be pursuing the goal of becoming profitable in 20 different directions, which leads to much inefficiency at a time when SHC needs to hum to get back on track.

    Advice to Management

    See cons. Fix them.
