Pros

* Opportunity to work across multiple product categories.
* Super fun culture. (work hard, play hard)
* Great general business education and responsibility given for younger executives. (I owned a $500MM P&L at the age of 25)
* I had 9 bosses in 6 years, and 8 out of 9 were solid people to work for. That's impressive.

Cons

* Drink the cool-aid. You've gotta fit in with the culture. if you don't, that will hurt your career potential.
* It's Minnesota, and it's the midwest. You'll encounter passive aggressiveness here & there, and Minneapolis is a relatively homogeneous location. Most people have never left Minnesota/Wisconsin.

Advice to Management

Go outside of the midwest for talent. Target's awful at segmentation, and it's because no one understands a non-midwest market.
