    Pros

    Processes laid out for everything OK work life balance Extensive training

    Cons

    Few ways for performance-driven workers to get ahead. One problem identified by many employees on company surveys is Ross' focus on visibility of work rather than quality of work. For example, you are asked to make your Outlook calendar public as a standard across Ross. Managers will base the performance of the worker on how much of your time is filled. If you work here, be prepared for twice as much meetings than at a normal company to "prove" you are working. Shockingly little adoption of technology, particularly in data. Daily reports are all painstakingly made by hand like an old German sports car, and are about as reliable. Promotions are based solely on years of experience. For example, there are no managers under or near 30yrs old, all directors are all older than the managers under them, VPs are all older than the directors under them, and so on all the way to the CEO who is very old. The biggest issue at Ross is the bloated management team, which makes up about 40% of each department. I have never worked at a company with this bad of a middle-management issue.
