Buyer Training Career Path

Allocation Analyst (Former Employee) Framingham, MA

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

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementInvest 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
