    I have been working at Target full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Target Headquarters hosts popular artists to perform during work hours, that headquarter employees get to attend for free. We have seen the Black-eyed Peas, Nora Jones, Shakira and there are rumors that Adel is coming soon.

    Cons

    There is a rough work-life balance that is truly unsustainable. As a Business Analyst one must work until the job gets done. I usually worked from 7am to 9pm and often until 1am. The manager and buyers on the team can make this balance better or worse, depending on their sense of urgency and if they micromanage. Target Headquarters hires around 400 Business Analysts a year for less than 300 positions. 4 BAs out of 4 quit within a 4 month time period. This shows that they are burning through BAs quickly, and know it. This also speaks to why the culture is so young at headquarters. Additionally, the benefits and pay do no merit the long work hours put into the job. I would rate the health benefits at a D and pay at a B. It is true what they say, Expect more, Pay less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the job market improves, Target will continue to lose valuable employees who want a better work life balance. Get rid of tedious processes that do not move the needle in the business and shift workload to Target India. Additionally, get rid of middle management (MP Managers) who do not know how to drive the business or effectively manage a team. You see slower turn by doing so.

    Pros

    They always are looking for ways to help progress the team members to the next level. They always are willing to help you out in any way.,

    Cons

    Never enough staff to really cover the floor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I live in the oil boom and it is hard to get anybody to work for the pay that we offer. It may be competitive in the eastern part of the U.S.
