I have been working at Target full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good pay. Lots of opportunity since there are many low hanging fruit. You dont need to be a genius to make a real difference

Cons

Some of the most insecure people Ive worked with. Many are blundering incompetents especially at the Director level and above. Teams are constantly under delivering on commitments but leaders change the key success factors and declare victory. Culture is staggeringly inefficient and overly collaborative to the point of ineffectiveness. Too many meetings. Calendar stalking is normal. Forced fun is required for leaders....ie you need to do "fun" things with your team even though you may hate them. HR is always in your business, talking to your team and "getting feedback" which they may or may not use against you.
