    Pros

    Kohl's really believes in work-life balance. I could not imagine myself anywhere else. From day one, they wanted to make sure I was not living at my desk. They always have new, fun ways to engage and motivate associates. Our benefits are more than fair and we have a free WAC membership. Kohl's really cares, from the top executives to individual supervisors; I've always felt respected and important at Kohl's.

    Cons

    The only con has been pay. Having to be available periodically on nights/weekends is also unfortunate, however, it is retail!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    I learned a lot from some really talented people. Overall everyone works really hard.

    Cons

    There was not a lot of room for growth in my department. Not a lot of opportunity for movement even laterally. Felt like overall environment was a bit "old school."

    Advice to Management

    Look at people for a sum of their talents and potential and not just their job title. If I would have felt more valued or like there was more opportunity, I would probably still be there.

    Pros

    Great company vision that all are striving for (To inspire and empower families to lead fulfilled lives). Not satisfied with just being ok...we want to be the best. Friendly Associate workforce. Wellness Center at Corporate is state of the art. Feel like I have autonomy to make decisions that help shape my job.

    Cons

    I feel like the office setting itself could be more exciting with colors, art, etc...

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and be transparent. We all appreciate it.

  6. Fast paced and challenging environment, will test your skills and ability to navigate the political landscape.

    Pros

    Great place to begin a career but most get stuck at the manager level.

    Cons

    Unless you work in Logistics, great work-life balance with plenty of opportunities for time-off.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on development of your people.

    Pros

    Kohl's offers a great work life balance. They are very focused on giving back to the community. This has by far been my favorite job and company to work for.

    Cons

    There are not any cons I can think of. I have truly enjoyed working here and couldn't imagine working anywhere else.

    Pros

    Great career opportunities, friendly & helpful coworkers, managers that care, constantly changing industry, exciting business projects

    Cons

    Corporate politics (hard to avoid in any large corporate settings, though)

    Advice to Management

    Keep inspiring and motivating your employees! Lead by example and continue to generate excitement about company values, mission and goals.

    Pros

    Unbeatable Benefits & Perks. Culture is shifting toward being a much more engaging place to work. Opportunities to work on exciting technology and projects in IT are the best in the area.

    Cons

    Politics. Silos. Management hierarchy is very deep - layer upon layer of management . These things make weeding through the roadblocks on projects to get anything done a challenge. But, again, things are starting to change with that .

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the progress toward making Kohl's teams more functional. The Greatness Agenda is a good start - let's keep the momentum going.

    Pros

    The company rolled out its new "Greatness Agenda" a year ago and it has made a very obvious positive impact at the corporate building. People feel very empowered about their work, happier with their leadership, and dedicated to providing great product to the customer.

    Cons

    Corporate is a bit gossipy. A lot of "he-said-she-said conversations".
