Does Nordstrom offer massages?

Pros

Nordstrom discounts and benefits, good name on resume, free coffee

Cons

-Hostile work environment which was never handled appropriately -Promotions and raises are based on who you're friends with and not merit and as such, road to growth and promotion is extremely frustrating -Leadership is extremely unprofessional in the way they behave and speak with other employees and vendors. Vendors got business if they were friends with the buyer or their spouses regardless of whether the vendor performed well or not - Politics gets too much in the way of what's the right thing for the business - Leadership at Nordstrom is focused on being "nice" so issues just get swept under the rug instead of being dealt with effectively In conclusion, everyone is so frustrated that they're all just aggressive with each other making it painful to work there.

Advice to Management

When you've identified a "bad apple", deal with it head on by correcting bad behavior and implement anti-retaliatory measures so that the employees aren't living in fear. You stand to lose strong talent and only keep these bad apples when you sweep their behavior under the rug. It only emboldens them to do so more and more aggressively. Teach leadership to act like leadership. Take the employee surveys seriously. Also, pay people fairly. The salary "ranges" varied quite wildly for the same job. You risk losing talent and tarnishing your reputation as an employer if these pieces don't get corrected.
