Great Career Opportunities for Young Professional, but VERY Political

Manager (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

ProsAdvancement
Fun culture...work hard and play hard
Good company to have on the resume
Great tools and capabilities
Best in class training and development
Great support and people
Fun downtown location
Great facilities and fringe benefits at HQ
401k match

ConsVERY Political, creates very noticeable differences in preferential treatment and opportunities for select few
Strong experience, superior skills, and true talent not rewarded as much as those with MBA, come from big name school, or those who are just good at networking with the "right" people
Ceiling to advance beyond certain levels if you don't have an MBA
Work/life balance in core business areas
Expensive to work downtown with parking costs
Extremely young demographic due to up or out mentality

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote fairly from within. Agree that an MBA is worth more and does open doors, but the value they place on this is obsessive that puts people in roles that they can't handle due to lack of experience and the pay differential is excessive. Have known many very talent people exit Target due to frustration over this. Business-wise, they are doing a lot of the right things...keep up with the constant innovation.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
