I worked at Sears as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Large company, lots of resources, great work/life balance. Once upon a time, this was a nice, stable company to work for, with plenty of routine jobs.

Cons

Too bureaucratic, no direction, low morale, no innovation. Can't compete with the industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get everyone on the same page before they jump ship.

    I have been working at Sears

    Pros

    National Company with good customer base

    Cons

    Too many ivory towers. Too many Chiefs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Separate Kmart and Sears. Get rid of the Presidents of Categories. Let the GMMs run the businesses. Get a CHIEF MERCHANT!
