Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Positive competitive environment
Wonderful talented co-workers

Cons

The company has been making a lot of changes that don't align with the sentiments it prides itself on.

Advice to Management

Great sellers aren't necessarily good managers. More manager training, as it seems a trend across the company that management doesn't know how to motivate positively.

    Pros

    Professional Culture
    Looks good on a resume for beginners.
    Employee Discounts are nice, especially during Anniversary Sale.

    Cons

    Earning decent money takes time and clientele relationships.
    Management was shoddy, since most managers were hired based on looks, not necessarily experience or know-how.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more experienced managers. Don't always go for the the most attractive or youngest: superficial choices make bad results.
