    I have been working at Kohl's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great for those new to the industry because coworkers are excited to teach
    - Great resources available
    - Promotes work/life balance (although this goes out the window around market week)
    - Opportunity to grow if you're open to hopping around to work on different brands

    Cons

    Used to be an amazing place to work and I think it can get back on track, but the NY office has seen a lot of change over the past 2 years and it feels a bit disoriented. Change in leadership, change in HR representatives, change in depth moving to and from Milwaukee (main corp headquarters)...

    While everyone that works there is generally motivated, creative and very friendly, you don't always see those qualities because of the lack of structure. It feels like we're all waiting for processes to be put into place and diction on strategy from mgmt, but it's currently all a little cloudy. I really hope it turns around. I'm optimistic, however, that it can.

    Advice to Management

    Strategize, Strategize, Strategize. We WANT to execute your wishes, but sometimes we're requested to do too much without answering the "WHY" behind it all so time is wasted on projects that get cut or pushed aside.

    I worked at Kohl's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cross functional partners and co-workers are immensely united in trying to "do the right thing", the physical office environment is very clean, bright and pleasant.

    Cons

    There are no growth opportunities. There is a swath of immature and petty management who lack visioning for the larger picture. There is rampant fear mongering coupled with small minded individuals with too much authority and no substance.
