    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good discount, some nice employees, strong company brand

    Cons

    no accountability for actions; decisions are not based on data and facts; lack of leadership training for managers, many of which do not know how to lead teams

    Advice to Management

    i don't understand why this company doesn't conduct a company-wide employee survey like most big corporations do. because there are no employee surveys...management is not held accountable for its actions and employees do not have a voice. my advice would be to truly listen to your employees and not just say that you care but actually show that you do through conducting surveys and obtaining feedback.

    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, great people, good work/life balance, genuine company that is very large but still strives to feel like a family run business. Nordstrom deserves its ranking as a great place to work.

    Cons

    Nordstrom is, as it should be, solely focused on multi-channel selling. This reality often hinders the company's competitiveness in corporate areas, particularly those functions that Nordstrom does in-house. It's important to keep in mind this is retail, and their competitive landscape, in regard to employment, is measured against other retailers.
