    Pros

    Great people and there's an opportunity to grow or move around.

    Cons

    Few working managers, very silo'ed and restricted within the job description, will not be empowered to go beyond titles.

    Advice to Management

    Empower and give the power to your management to make decisions.

    Pros

    For such a big corporation it manages efficiently for the most part. Meet and work with different people was not as bad as I thought it would be.

    Cons

    Though the majority of workers are great, like any place there's always a Napolean who thinks they rule Target world.

    Advice to Management

    Yes, reminders or updates on the store goals are okay, but don't lecture everyday on how we need to do our job to keep cost low.

    Pros

    I worked at Target's corporate office for 3 years. I have a lot of positive things to say but they're hard to put on 'paper'. The culture of inclusivity and networking resonated with me. For the most part, I felt empowered to drive the business forward and take risks where appropriate.

    Cons

    As with a lot of big companies, often times Target does something because 'that's the way we've always done it', which is frustrating and unhelpful. Hopefully recent layoffs and restructuring will help drive innovation.

    Sometimes managers are assigned management roles because they need experience in that area, not because they want it. This caused a lot of trouble for me early in my career. I had a manager who didn't want to be one and it was obvious.

    Internal promotions are easy and often, however, if you want to jump pyramids then you may as well leave. Getting supported to move to a different area within the company is harder than getting a new job elsewhere. You have to get manager approval, then network, then mock interview, then wait for a position to be open and maybe, if you're lucky, interview and get it. In my experience, the process takes months.

    From a digital perspective, the technology is lightyears behind. Ever heard someone say they hate Target.com? That's why.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving digital! Managers who are failing to adjust should get the boot. It's not enough for leadership to drive the bus, everyone has to be onboard or the message is disjointed.
