    Pros

    It's a great place to work. Management is empowered to be creative and make change to benefit the company. Staff is empowered to grow their career if they are able to demonstrate their abilities. There is a unique support approach where lower staff can escalate up to Management to get support. Management does what it can to support the front line and ensure teams have what they need to be succesful.
    Work/life balance is a motto around here. Management is relaxed. Work hard play hard mentality
    Career paths are drawn out with success criteria outlined to get there. Advancements tend to be metrics driven so it's not a political game to get promoted.

    Cons

    Entitlement - there are some staff that currently or previously have worked here that want to be handed things that others have worked for. It's a unique situation to watch team members tear others down because of their successes. Overall, this is a positive environment to work in. Most of the negativity I have seen has come from staff that feels they are owed something.

    Advice to Management

    Continue using metrics to drive change and reward staff.

    Pros

    Management fully supports employee ideas even if they can't all be implemented quickly. Teams and leaders are committed to developing careers but are up front with the commitment level it takes to excel your career.
    Employees are given opportunities and those who are driven and do what is asked excel.

    Cons

    Benefits package are below average as it appears health packages are declining
    Pay is consistently a topic that most employees feel can be improved
    There can be some toxicity with those who behave entitled or complain of opportunities instead of doing the work and providing the effort needed to progress thier careers.

    Advice to Management

    More mentoring opportunities
    More incentives for employees to stay longer like bonuses or spot raises

    Pros

    It has a bit of startup feel, with the backing of a large company. (Daddy) being Nordstrom. Tremendous growth in the company. Great teams. IT and Engineering is one the best environment's at Hautelook. You will get the support needed if your are on the right team.

    Cons

    Growing fast and trying to keep up with growth. Working with Nordstrom corporate feels like things are moving at snails pace. Too many meetings when dealing with corporate. However, internal team is agile and mobile and can pivot quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Shipping and keeping cost down should be more important to sell. If customer don't get the right products then they will go someone else. Fortunately for us customer service is top notch and customers are treated well.

    I've worked at a lot of places and finally I found one where I would like to stay and set down my roots. I'm really inspired by those around me to be a better person, professionally. I'm also given the freedom to do just that.

    I can't think of any.

    Keep doing what you're doing!
