    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to make impacting decisions even as an entry level employee
    If you take it upon yourself, and organize meetings with the right people, you can get plenty of insight on the retail industry from experienced management
    Great compensation for entry level job
    Work-Life balance is good

    Cons

    Unprofessional climate: cursing, nagging about projects, very resistant to change
    Terrible interaction with vendors: racial slurs, cursing, homophobic language- overall ignorant diction
    Extreme lack of diversity and any care for developing diversity initatives
    No employee bonding opportunities office environment is hostile, awkward, and uncomfortable

    Advice to Management

    Emphasize to leadership in your company (buyers, managers, VPs, and DMMs) to respond to change and training new employees with enthusiasm. As a new hire I've found it extremely difficult to maintain optimism in my work space as some of the buyers only complain about the work they have to do and that makes it hard for someone to actually want to thrive ina buying career. As I have read in previous critiques here on Glassdoor, it is true that a lot of the buyers in this company are not trained adequately on how to train a new employee.

    Retaining your employees overall should be a major focus on HR's part...since they seem to emphasize their recruiting efforts so much...retaining those new hires is just as important or your hiring efforts go to nothing.
