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

    Pros

    Work-from-home flexibility, unlimited sick days, good amount of paid vacation (20 days after your first year), Summer Fridays (you’re off work at 1pm on Fridays during Summer)

    Cons

    Hard to move up because of the structure; yearly raises are put on hold or cancelled if business isn’t thriving; very few paid holidays off, compared to many offices; HR is a ticket system and you’re not dealing with actual people most of the time, so it’s difficult to get support; offices are moving from Herald Square to Long Island City 👎🏻; onboarding there can be rough because it’s not mapped out well
