    Pros

    Location of Corporate Offices allow for an "reverse commute" if you live in Boston.
    Good work / life balance.

    Cons

    The company will often hire external candidate to fill buyer positions instead of leveraging the training program that they have developed. The work environment can be very competitive as advancement along the career path is slow. Management is inexperienced and primarily consists of employees that are also in the buyer career path and may only be focused on reaching a buyer position instead of developing their team. Analyst have little to no say concerning their subject matter. If you accept this position because you have dreams of becoming an apparel do not be surprised if you are placed in HomeGoods planning teapots. Work spaces consist of two walls of a cube adjacent to several other work spaces giving very little privacy and the impression that you are always being watched. Nepotism is common and relatives/children of current management are given preference/accelerated through the career path.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your middle management and the employees you hire into this program. It's not a secret that the program is set up with the expectation that there will be large scale attrition otherwise the company would not hire multiple PASE classes a year consisting of 20+ employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Past: If you worked hard, you were rewarded and you could look forward to having a future with this company of which you have given any and all spare time to (nights, weekends, holidays, vacations)

    Cons

    Now: Outsources IT positions with a company that is apparently not an EOE. You will get notified of being laid off but expected to train your outsourcing replacement before you leave. There is no sense of loyalty from upper management to those in the IT trenches working day in/day out to ensure that all devices are functioning normally and all data is accurate. They only care about the stock price and the shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Currently, both the President and former Massachusetts Governor Romney are running part of their campaigns on how to stop outsourcing and bring jobs back here to Americans who need and deserve them. Take heed - STOP OUTSOURCING NOW
