Good experience overall. Culture was very different from that of a typical Silicon Valley company.

I have been working at Target as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Enjoyed being part of a large, multi-year project. I got exposure to several different vendors as well as a more structured approach that comes from a formal PMO.

Cons

Commuting to Minneapolis every week for 14 months was a bit of a wear. Missed my family.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My only real concern was that due to the large percentage of outsourcing (myself included) I didn't feel the passion of ownership that comes from a team comprised mostly of FTE staff. I would reduce the amount of contractors.

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Alot of great and smart people, very flexible schedule, good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Alot of work to be done, emphasis on sales so much as this could be the reason you have job or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to give more credit to their project managers, they do alot of work and most of the time go un-noticed.

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Fantastic company culture
    -Great structure for building leadership skills and providing feedback
    -Willingness to explore/try new ideas

    Cons

    Historically slow/bureaucratic since Target is a well-oiled machine that does physical retail really, really well. However, with changes to the retail landscape in the digital space,Target is starting to move faster and experiment more, which is great!
