I worked at Ross Stores full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Fast paced environment, solid growth and expansion for a retail company, ambitious store growth over next ten years, okay discount benefit

Cons

Little employee development, managers are encouraged to operate very politically with lots of secrets and poor communication; plenty of project analysis but little change to long standing procedures. Lots of employees seem unhappy, but stuck there due to poor job market.

Advice to Management

Managers should learn to thank their employees frequently for the work they do. Unless systems and procedures are updated the current company model will not work in 10 years.
