    Pros

    Paid time off and employee discount

    Cons

    If you are over 40 and have years of experience and have proven yourself there is still no opportunity for advancement. The company will promote and quickly advance young people with no work history or job skills. The younger group under 35 can be poor performers but still get a promotion because of their age.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at performance and experience over youth.

    I have been working at Macy's

    Pros

    Good Employee discount, I work early shift, so I get out early, good if you have kids,

    Cons

    Poor communication, Difficult to move up unless management likes you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with respect, there are many employees that have college degrees and get treated like they have a grade school education.
