Approves of CEO

I worked at Macy's full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Prestige and convenience of commute

Cons

After a restructuring in 2009-2010 there was a distinct culture clash between the Systems group based in GA & any IT folks in NYC. The approach to projects and dealing with business users was different and it didn't seem like GA cared to adapt or adopt any of the methods in place in NYC.

    Pros

    The people you worked with formed a great team. Everyone pulled together to get the job done. Work Life balance was very respected.

    Cons

    Always felt that our voice in the corporation was not heard. Company was based in New York and they drove most of the assortment decisions.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    The Visual manager is excellent and extremely helpful. She cares about her team and is genuinely interested in their futures and current situations.

    Cons

    None of the other departments really communicate with the Visual team. It seams like the visual team operates independently from the store.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication between all departments.
