    Pros

    the annual salary is usually pretty good

    Cons

    -no stability in in the organization
    -all business units are competing against each other rather than working together for a common goal.
    -no 401K match, no pension, minimal insurance assistance, no education assistance, no anual raises...

    I worked at Sears full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Huge Business! Exposure to lots of the 80s and 90s business thinking. The compensation is good, but use it like all "outside" people do. As a stepping stone. Get the title and move on. The leadership fluxes so much that it's no wonder nothing gets done. The inventory is so crazy it's hysterical. The leadership does a lot of PR work, but not a lot of actual work.

    Cons

    No longer relevant business, leadership is too worried about how it "looks" than what it does. Directors and above CYA and doing what they've always done. They promote from within, the problem is that most of the "within" is uneducated and there's no teaching done. So you have leaders that don't know anything but how to run a store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP! You're not the worlds best retailer. In fact you're the worst start acting like it. You've got some great people and some really poor leaders. Do successful succession planning and stop hiring people who show a good game but really can't back it up.
