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

    Pros

    Both Team and Individual-based. Start early, end early.

    Cons

    Have to start early, not as creative as it could be. Everything is pretty much written out to what you need to have. It's very physical.

    Advice to Management

    Have more one on one time with new employees. Don't rely on just the people who work below you.

    I worked at Macy's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company with good benefits, generous amount of vacation days. Visible dedication to diversity. Commitment to learning & development.

    Cons

    Sometimes excruciatingly long hours around holidays. Lots of internal promotion hype and, while absolutely true at store-level, it becomes infinitely more difficult to progress past that. Although learning & development opportunities abound, there hasn't really been an effective mentorship program for those looking to join district teams or beyond.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate programs are wonderful for setting a standard model of behavior, however stores thrive when allowed to weigh paperwork, coaching, and training needs for their particular market and shift them accordingly. Sometimes it is abundantly clear that a particular company-wide program is simply not working, but stores must lumber on, bearing the burden of that program while unable to make the necessary edits that could effect real change. Exercise caution in the pursuit of company-wide uniformity; it is this result that often extinguishes the charm and singularity of each store.
