I have been working at Sears as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

People are friendly. You get free soda at the downtown IT location. We worked with an Agile platform with predictable meetings and expectations.

Cons

I can't say anything bad about my time there. There were great people and it didn't feel stressful.

Advice to Management

Continue to be friendly and upfront about deadlines.

    I worked at Sears full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you have the right boss, work is tolerable. The online business unit is still hot. Recent work on new company culture has the potential for meaningful change.

    Cons

    If you are not in the online business unit, you can forget any bonus. There is a huge disparity between the few that are trying to change the company and the "old guard". Multiple semiautonomous business units creates tension, and not always the good kind. Frustrating place to work for all because of this.
