I worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Fantastic training and development program. - Fast paced culture and fun envionrment at HQ

Cons

- Insane "feedback overload" culture. People take it to extremes and it can become all-consuming. - Everyone is also obsessed with "timing" of promotions and is in a constant race to move on to the next position. - Many layers and approvals needed to get anything done

Advice to Management

Be weary of burning people out. There is such a thing as a "strong contributor" and not everyone is either high potential or a poor performer. Find value in those who are contributing consistently and work to reward them as much as the high flying corporate ladder climbers.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, great coworkers, and management was pretty alert and helpful to me.

    Cons

    Can't really complain about working during the peak holiday hours because I was seasonal, but sometimes it got really chaotic. Didn't work Black Friday, but other days (especially weekends) were just as busy. Sometimes breaks weren't handled properly because of it.
