    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Target is very amenable with your personal life, and they are willing to work with you if you need time off, or if you would like to bring up any relevant issues to your position.

    Cons

    Unless you have some kind of sway with upper management, it will be difficult to get any type of attention for promotion. You also might need to become a brown nose employee, which I would not advise.

    Advice to Management

    Work on interpersonal skills with your employees, many managers must work on this because team members are not cattle, they are human beings that need encouragement and motivation to keep moving forward within their positions.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Downtown Minneapolis
    People are good hearted and want the company to succeed
    Lots of advertising dollars spent on employees to showcase cool things the company does (give back, volunteer, new technology).

    Cons

    This company is process heavy. There is always a process to do anything and it will take a long time. This is of course cumbersome for small projects that must follow these rules. Target is also personal network heavy. You will not get anything done if you ask a person to do and its their job. Instead you must have coffee's and build relationships and then when you ask a person to do their job, they may do your need ahead of the process.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making huge investment mistakes so Target can go back to being highly profitable.
