I have been working at Sears full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very nice place to work for. Everyone is very nice and fun to be around and is not a very rushed atmosphere.

Cons

Not really much to say here. Just the pay is a little flat but that is with all jobs of this type.

    Pros

    So long as you're not caught in the slipstream of an "Eddie project" (one that has the CEO's personal attention) or working to shore up the always-crumbling edifice of a terribly coded website, this can be a flexible, low-key (sometimes excessively low-key) place to work. There's room for niche work, and in spite of all sorts of unnecessary technical constraints nobody (unless they're in Engineering) will actively keep you from doing the best work you can manage to do.

    Cons

    There is no real Web strategy and no real technical leadership to speak of at Sears. The Web business is structured essentially as an internal agency and is powerless to set its own agenda; as a result we're whipsawed by retail units that don't understand Web work and don't care to learn, and that want things when they want them, quality or maintainability or any other long-range concern be damned. The company is a collection of competing fiefdoms, and everything runs from the top down; Eddie Lambert's arbitrariness and impatience infect all the executive layers below him. The result is organizational ADD.

    Advice to Management

    Give the Web business ownership of the Web business. Allow it to chart a consistent course, and fund it so that it can say no to stupid demands. Stop considering the website as basically just a marketing effort, and stop putting marketing execs in charge of it.
