    I worked at Macy's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I would be there early to see new deliveries arrive and notice some of the companies I knew going to different areas with deliveries and at last I was able to complete my diploma and start thinking about more options for future employment so I would like to start a freelance job near my home and am no longer working at the Long Island Macy's location.

    Cons

    Standing long hours, having to be able to travel to stores in some instances.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring qualified people who need experience in order to enter amanagement program.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -A decent amount of autonomy when it comes to running and owning your business
    -Ability to try different functions (buying, planning, product development, etc)
    -The people - for the most part people compete with the market and not each other
    -Diverse and inclusive culture
    -Flex-time ability to work from home
    -"Dress for your day" can dress more casual on days with no formal meetings
    -Macy's employee discount

    Cons

    -Benefits including health and dental insurance are the bare minimum when compared to the market
    -Don't observe all national holidays - Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President's Day, etc.
    -Employees are encouraged to "drive your development" you have to know what you want to do next and network to get the position through company portal

    Advice to Management

    "Driving your development" works to an extent, however, when you are open to new roles and functions it would be helpful to have SOME guidance from HR to understand what is available instead of just networking from role to role.
