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

    Pros

    As a manager you actually have a lot a freedom to be creative to come up with ways to be successful. You get a lot of training and you get to work with your teams to successful. There are a lot of good benefits and rewards working there.

    Cons

    The company puts more value in hiring young college grads with no experience over seasoned retail veterans. I saw the company go from being focused on brands to focus on discounts. Stores became messy.

    Advice to Management

    Realize your most important asset is your people and stores that are understaffed do not look good or run well.

    I worked at Macy's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Depending on your manager, there is work-life balance. There is freedom to creat and implement programs if you can find the funding.

    Cons

    Tries to do too much. And so is stretched too thin financially and people-wise. Is old fashioned in management style. Too many senior leaders I. Their roles for too long. Needs fresher, newer thinking

    Advice to Management

    Be more competitive with salary, work from home. Be innovative and stop copying ideas from other retailers

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Layed back work, air conditioned facility. Good payed time off after several years of service. The facility is clean and comfortable.

    Cons

    Some managers are racist and trouble makers. The annual reviews are horrible because they will find anything to degrade you no matter how hard you work. But if your one of the favorites you'll be OK.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need more training in every subject.
