I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Generally good corporate environment, mostly good colleagues, decent benefits, average salary range. Work-life balance mostly good except during high volume holiday sales season. Vacation time based on career experience rather than seniority limitations. Some leadership was good, some not so much.

Cons

Most problems were directly related to poor old school management attitudes. Despite 'new blood' executives, many decisions were uninformed and detrimental to productivity and morale. Communication and transparency were superficial at best. Training and genuine recognition was mostly limited to favored senior personnel.

Advice to Management

They've lost a lot of top notch talent in the past couple of years. Blaming the economy only explains so much, and justifies very little. The executives may be the 'brains', but the employee's are the body, and a brain without a body isn't going to live very long.
