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

    Pros

    Above Market Salaries, Inclusive Culture, Lead Developer and above are Bonus eligible, Some locations in Atlanta Suburb(Heard they are moving to midtown/downtown Atlanta which will be crazy) not bad for commute. Lot to learn on the technology front and you get to work with wonderful people.

    Cons

    If you know Retail even a little, you should know it all.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Consistent work place. In my experience, what I am scheduled is what I will work. Fair and honest work place. Managers were genuine. PTO, Employee Discount, Benefits for full-time employees. Fun people to work with!

    Cons

    A lot of responsibility for what you are compensated. Hours are not very flexible, be prepared to sacrifice weekends and holidays. This is to be expected in retail. High pressure on daily sales goals, and credit cards. These numbers reflect your review.
