Pros

Great people who want to do great work. A collaborative environment. The Fast Fun and Friendly culture at HQ is genuine. The work itself can be very fun and rewarding.

Cons

Sometimes promotion criteria is a mystery and an exceedingly political process. Due to strategic missteps, our transformation to being a truly multichannel retailer is not moving fast enough. Layers of bureaucracy makes getting things done difficult, especially new initiatives lacking a standard playbook. It is hard for individuals to move across "pyramids" which drives many people to leave the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work harder to get the unfiltered truth from team members. Stop focusing on just the headlines, since this causes the painful truth to be filtered out in order to "tell a better story". Worry less about process and more about making the right business decision. Empower your people to deliver great results. Ultimately, create an environment where the best decision for the business and the best decision for one's career are the same thing.

    Pros

    Pay is very good, treated with respect, development is a priority, management team seeks feedback and promotes upward feedback, management trusts team members

    Cons

    Work success is not valued as much as development success. You can have multiple accomplishments that would be highly praised at other companies but if you can't tell the story of the accomplishment using the terminology buzzwords, you will be stuck in your position. No or very, very limited growth opportunities.
