I worked at Nordstrom full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great competitive culture. It challenged me and helped me grow as a manager There are always opportunities to grow within the company. You have to ask and show initiative but also prove yourself. They offer training to make you a better manager and leader.

Cons

Nordstrom's culture is not for everyone. It is very customer and goal driven with no excuses for falling short. Therefore, it's not for everyone.

Advice to Management

Don't forget to listen and empathize with your team when trying to reach your goals.

    Focus on the real talent versus the people that have worked for company for a life-time and are real manipulators of the system. Look out for the designer department.
