    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good Pay, discounts at Store, Rack, E-Bar and Cafe and thats it. Benefits are good also, generous healthcare. Mostly monetary benefits.

    Cons

    Company culture, cliquey, fake management and sales people. No sense of community or equality. Not professional at all, very social if you know the right people or right look they want. Silent politics and hidden rules.

    Advice to Management

    Need to improve dynamics of company to accept all employees and promote from within.

    I worked at Nordstrom full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Good for a career starting place in fashion/customer service/retail management, Work with a diverse employee and customer base.

    Cons

    Highly political; it's about who you know, not necessarily how hard you work or your job performance. Pay is less than comparable to that of competitors (for management positions). Job positions are not very well defined; your work expectations depend on who you are working for. Environment can be overly social, and lack professionalism. There used to be great training for new sales employees, but in the last 2-5 years, training has shrunk into a shorter amount of time, and this allows for fall out.

    Advice to Management

    Supply 360 reviews, so supervisors can also be reviewed by their teams. Supply more timely feedback; including praise. Make training, expectations, coaching, and information more streamlined, organized, and consistent. Increase training programs to assist with employee retention. Have more contest or bonus incentives for managers.
