    I worked at Ross Stores full-time

    Pros

    Certain divisions are very good and in these areas there are opportunities for growth. Work/life balance is trying to be improved. Compensation is competitive.

    Cons

    There is no consistency among divisions. Some areas have great, team focused, healthy, work/life balanced environments and others are the complete opposite. Upper management does well managing numbers but does not excel at managing or growing people. Communication can also be inconsistent overall both between immediate managers and upper management. There is also a significant amount of micromanagement and overall lack of training when transitioning into new areas.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees (assistant buyers and buyers) to give anonymous feedback. Having feedback meetings in which HR and senior management sit in aren't going to produce candid, honest, feedback.


  2. "Successful conservative career"
