    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I loved working with the public. I enjoyed interacting with and helping customers determine their purchase needs.

    Cons

    It was retail, in some instances, interacting with customers was not very pleasurable. In fact, in certain circumstances, it was abusive.

  4. "Very Mixed"

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very flexible. Casual environment. Other than that, I can't think of much else. There are some great managers there. Most are okay. The pay is a bit below average. Even though the company has recovered from the mess of 2008, they seem to still be in a mode to make cutbacks.

    Cons

    Too much specialization. Once you are in a job, you will stay there. Any advancement will happen based on experience. Since they don't really offer you the chance to learn new jobs, that often means that there are other accounting jobs that you will be locked out of. Moving up is also difficult because so many managers there are happy where they are and have no intention of ever moving anywhere else (mainly due to the fact that they have families and like the flexibility). That can make it difficult if you are a Senior Accountant trying to move up. And I feel very sorry for the hourly workers who were promised great experience on track to moving up, only to find out that after 4 years, they can't move anywhere because they have not gained enough experience. Within my group, that is a topic of constant conversation. It is a bit of a double edged sword, some people are happy sitting put, but if you are at the bottom of the barrel, you will be there for a very long time. If you are just looking for a steady job, then you may be much happier than me.
