I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I loved the people I worked with. The job was challenging but interesting. With old management company felt like a family. You get to interact with different job types and levels. You get to see the new product before the season. The position will impact the company bottom line because you are the last person to touch the merchandise before it gets to the stores.

Cons

There is a definate difference in levels of management at JCP. Upper levels look down on lower levels as clerical help. New management quick to let people go if you don't see eye to eye with them. Some times the company is very clickish.

    I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Vacation time credit for previous work experience is a nice bonus. Was there 4 months and received credit for my previous employment years that was equal to 5 weeks!

    Cons

    Poor/Inadequate Senior Leadership Team with regards to people Development
    Not enough focus on enhancing Leadership skills
    Too much instability since Ron came in as CEO
    Haven't received a Manager's raise in last 18mos due to Company's poor financial results

    Advice to Management

    Feel that the Executives are trying to change too much without thoroughly assessing the pros/cons through. Also feel that the company is confused- unsure which direction that it is currently
