I worked at Target full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I worked at Target

    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.
