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

    Pros

    Ross is a very successful corporation. Sales have risen steadily in the two years that I have been with the company, which equates to higher bonus and stock price. Salary is very competitive.

    Cons

    There are competing agendas between executives, which results in mixed communication and disagreement on what results should look like. The atmosphere is a bit like walking through a mine field; you're never sure if your next step will lead to an explosion. This makes for a stressful environment.

    Advice to Management

    Put the Service Profit Chain to work at Ross. Put associates first. Establish relationships between profitability, customer loyalty, and employee satisfaction, loyalty, and productivity. Value is created by satisfied, loyal, and productive associates. Associate satisfaction results from support services and policies that enable associates to deliver results to customers. Those customers will keep coming back, and sales will continue to climb as a result.
