    Intense logistic-based retail that lacks creative input from management

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, schedule all make for an enticing career move. The Target brand can serve one's resume well.

    Cons

    Integrity gaps within leadership teams, poor disposition towards subordinate team members, military-style hierarchy that does not foster teambuilding or relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the education glass ceiling for team members that have demonstrated a commitment to the company.
