Pros

Being a large company Sears offers the opportunity to work in various businesses and the Company is flexible about associates moving between different businesses.

Cons

Large number of associates make up for the dismal state of IT systems in the company. The result is bad quality of work one gets to do. Aggressive cost cutting.

Advice to Management

Fix the failing businesses, systems and atleast attempt to keep the employees satisfied. Building the company for the long term needs work on all the fronts

    Pros

    Apprehensions are fun, a learning experience.

    Cons

    Management doesnt know how to communicate. They talk to associates like they are not people. If they understood that if you treat them right then they will work better for them.
    No advancement opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to people like they are people. Offer raises or some sort of incentives, give people some hope that some sort of advancement is in the close future,

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay, some good managers, many smart coworkers.

    Cons

    Too many to list... Complete lack of brand or cross-brand strategy at any level, ridiculous barriers to making a simple purchase online or in stores, no brand standards, no quality standards, nothing substantive guiding decisions. This company wants to be a dominant ecommerce retailer but they can't even get the basics right on most of their sites -- largely because they don't even know what the basics are (e.g. letting someone complete a purchase). It's an embarrassing company to work for if you have any sense of customer service, quality, or a desire to work on things that improve lives or the world in any way.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves. I honestly don't know if there's any hope beyond that.
