Pros

Macy's is an amazing company to work for. You are part of a sheltered team as an "EDP," which means as long as you keep in communication with the necessary people, the company will help you advance to where you want to be. HR and management cares a lot about your growth, whether it is beneficial or detrimental to the store you're at. If you are currently placed in X store as a sales manager but find yourself more interested in operations, visual, or even .com, there will be someone helping you plan your next move.

In terms of the work environment, it differs from store to store. The bigger the store, the more resources you get. The top execs, are usually the most polite, professional, and helpful people, which may be because they've gone through years of dealing with customers as associates and sales managers to get to where they are now. It is also a great place to network. Many top HRs of other big companies are recruited from Macy's.

Cons

Retail hours. Enough said. It will take some getting used to. Only bright side to it is that you have the rest of the management team to suffer with.

Advice to Management

Have a rotational program.

    I worked at macys.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They seek out and hire great people. The culture is laid back and fun. The work is exciting and you get to see the results of your work online on the website. Their central location in the city, San Francisco, offers lots of diversions with easy access from BART.

    Cons

    There is a lot of potential at macys.com, what gets in the way are the people who feel that the only way to get projects done is to bully everyone into promising completely unrealistic expectations.There is a group of people who should lead but instead like to push their weight around and hold your reputation at bay if you cannot deliver on what they've already promised, however unrealistic. I saw it happen to many a good worker, over and over. My coworkers hesitated taking on projects because of the people they would be exposed to. There is no room to fail and learn because you will pay for any little thing. Unless of course, you can blame it on someone else.

    Advice to Management

    HR hires some really good people, look at why they all leave. In the time that I was there, we lost some really good key people because of politics. If you really want to be a "tech place to work at" weed out the bad management and pay your tech people more, let them learn from their mistakes instead of allowing your management to just give them the cold shoulder until they leave.

    Pros

    They will respect your work/life balance. Having already established retail giant Macy's.Inc gives you an edge when it comes to E-commerce business. They Acknowledge outstanding work done by individuals or teams and gives out recognitions.

    Cons

    Having newly hired managers who do not pick up their level of work is frustrating.
    The long line of development process can be seen as dysfunctional especially when QA fails to find bugs/errors that should have been detected by developer level.
    You might be expected to do work that requires programming knowledge but not the programming itself.

    Advice to Management

    Due to their fast growth they tend to bring people from outside.
