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

Pros

They seek out and hire great people. The culture is laid back and fun. The work is exciting and you get to see the results of your work online on the website. Their central location in the city, San Francisco, offers lots of diversions with easy access from BART.

Cons

There is a lot of potential at macys.com, what gets in the way are the people who feel that the only way to get projects done is to bully everyone into promising completely unrealistic expectations.There is a group of people who should lead but instead like to push their weight around and hold your reputation at bay if you cannot deliver on what they've already promised, however unrealistic. I saw it happen to many a good worker, over and over. My coworkers hesitated taking on projects because of the people they would be exposed to. There is no room to fail and learn because you will pay for any little thing. Unless of course, you can blame it on someone else.

Advice to Management

HR hires some really good people, look at why they all leave. In the time that I was there, we lost some really good key people because of politics. If you really want to be a "tech place to work at" weed out the bad management and pay your tech people more, let them learn from their mistakes instead of allowing your management to just give them the cold shoulder until they leave.

    I have been working at Macy's Technology full-time

    Pros

    nice people, high investment in training, high focus on diversity and inclusion. Nice to see a company acting progressive in this aspect. A lot of longevity in staff....although longevity in staff can also be a negative and cause a company to lose it's creative edge. Job security - a lot of positions open (although this may be because of turnover in 'new' staff)

    Cons

    no flex time, no telecommuting, no 401k for a year, no insurance for 6 mos, no bonus, no stock option, extreme process controls with much duplication in practices leading to inefficiency in managing projects

    Advice to Management

    listen to your new staff for fresh perspectives on business practices. Telecommuting and flex time should be considered to remain competitive. The job market is improving...the newly hired staff will evaluate alternatives.
