      I have been working at Macy's full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Team environment. Offer in house classes on different topics of business and leadership if you are allowed time to take them. Very charitable organization and big focus on giving back. 20% back of house discount even on sale items.

      Cons

      Lots of politics and red tape to get anything across or anything done. Readily let go of older employees in favor of cheaper inexperienced ones while keeping favored incompetent individuals at the top. Terrible health coverage and non-competitive salary rates.

      Advice to Management

      New CEO is still hung up on slogans with no real plan forward. Develop individuals at all levels to leverage experience across the company.

      Negative Outlook

      I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Team environment, Fun product, Interesting work, will learn a lot

      Cons

      Catty environment, managers are not strong leaders, slow decision making, unnecessary tasks, difficult to get promoted, minimal control on career path- they choose your next steps for you

      Advice to Management

      Actually care about developing your people. They are a reflection of who you are. Always be wanting to be a stronger leader. Don't do everything for your personal benefit and gain, because we can all tell.
