Pros

Target is a great company to work for. They offer great benefits and are extremely flexible with scheduling. You can learn a lot from working at Target and they have training programs that are affective whem implemented properly.

Cons

It is very political at every level. It can be hard to move up within the company if you do not fit the stereotypical mold of an Executive. The pay for leaders who promoted from within the company is much lower than the people who are hired in as leaders from outside of the company.

Advice to Management

Honor your senior employees more and make sure that you are proactive about any hiring needs. Also slow down on promoting current Executives so quickly. Some are so focused on moving to the next level that they are not working in the present and helping to develop their subordinates that would like the opportunity and knowledge to promote as well.
