    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Summer fridays
    Good work from home policy but very team specific

    Cons

    You will work with analysts who have been at macys for 30 years. No desire to improve or innovate. Lots of opportunity for movement within the company but you will be underpaid. Management doesn’t delegate well. Spend most of my time sitting around doing nothing. A very boring place to work in a dying industry. If you are young and motivated and want to have a career in finance, do not work at this company. It is soul crushing.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people more or they will continue to leave, like they’ve been doing for years.

    I worked at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Discount, contests, nice co-workers, Starbucks and beautiful store.

    Cons

    Pay is low, even if you have a degree and years of retail experience. Thanksgiving was always ruined by going to work right after dinner. Change managers like underwear.

    Advice to Management

    Pay according to experience, put more people on the floor because customers feel like it’s better to shop online. Stock stores with product. Don’t make the customer wait for merch to be delivered, or they might as well go to online shopping only.
    Support the staff and treat them like humans.
