    I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The senior executives are smart, diligent, and organized. Nothing is done without immense scrutiny and they genuinely care about those who work hard and achieve results.

    Cons

    In an industry that changes daily, the organization needs to focus less on past successes and look forward in order to remain relevant.

    Advice to Management

    Work on developing your people and everything else will fall into place.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A dynamic group of creative people that are diverse and dynamic.
    Corporate Discount.

    Cons

    When retail is doing bad the company looks for extreme ways of reducing cost

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on web metrics using social media as a way of telling which social media venues are reaching the most millennials.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They give you the ability to sell anything in the store. If the client is exclusively yours, you can shop anywhere for them.

    Cons

    Everyone is commission based. Too many employees out there trying to gain sales for a living. Congested floors. People hanging by registers to ring in the sale. No upkeep, just selling.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone should be commissioned. Makes it really hard for those trying to build clients to actually build clients.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The discount on clothes they give you is pretty good, but since the clothes are so expensive it only brings them down to an affordable price. They have a good number of sample sales where you really fine some brand name stuff for very cheap.

    Cons

    The company is owned by Macy's so most of the direction comes from Macy's. This can be a problem as Macy's and Bloomingdale's have a different target markets and the same strategy doesn't alway work. And since Macy's is struggling Bloomingdale's get the downstream effects.

    Pros

    1. The Bloomingdale's name is iconic.
    2. Still has a few great people in their stores and merchant organization

    1. Senior leadership is aggressive and abusive as business continues to falter.
    2. There is no help in the stores.
    3. There is an aggressive initiative to remove the 50+ yr old OVPexecutives.
    4. Compensation is low for the roles when compared to the competition.
    5. No diversity at the senior leadership level

    Advice to Management

    Management and leadership does not take advice or opinions that differ from their own. This is not Michael Gould's or Marvin Traub's Bloomingdale's

    I have been working at Bloomingdale's as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Other interns are fun and cool

    Cons

    No transparency between management and company, very dry culture - no one talks to one another, nothing cool or exciting happening, pay is horrible, very disorganized HR

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your people. Interns all over New York are being pampered by their employers so they come back, there's no reason for a bloomie's intern to come back because they're treated poorly.

    It is most effective when the managers a trained in being able to help you succeed.
