    I worked at Hudson's Bay Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    PTO for executives was changed and is now very good - if you can schedule it.
    Great associates to work with.

    Cons

    No communication, moving all the jobs to India, employees are treated like they are only there to dust the chair - no respect.

    Advice to Management

    Stop purchasing more stores until what you have is solid.
    Do not move our jobs to India.
    Show the associates that they are valued and respected.
    Quit hiring so many upper management executives while terminating the workers. Most of the upper management hired do not know or understand how the business works. High salaries for low return.
