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

    Pros

    Worked with great people, mentors in this company. In my early years when a separate division, enjoyed career immensely. As company merged to one, my opinions have changed.

    Cons

    Work schedule became more challenging, not ideal for work/life balance. As economy has changed, retail environment has been more challenging.

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

    Pros

    During my time there the management were really concerned about maintaining work-life balance, enough so that HR would ask why if you worked daily overtime. Lots of smart people and a generally collegial atmosphere.

    Cons

    The company is spread out, with important management in four cities and some competing fiefdoms between the various locations can make it hard to get important things done.

    Pros

    Great workplace overall and Good culture.

    Cons

    Unfair supervisor .... and the supervisor is able to get by despite unfairness.

    Advice to Management

    Please take action against unfair supervisors ..... AS no sufficient action is taken - it is difficult to stick with a nice company like Macys - because of unfair supervisor. Discrimination of some sort continues often in more subtle ways ....

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, offers competitive pay, room for growth in the company and vendor side, gratis (free product), product training, great discount throughout the whole store

    Cons

    Retail hours, a lot of events on the weekends, not enough employees for coverage, pressure to make credit goals, unnecessary tasks that interrupt business

    Advice to Management

    Understand that there are multiple duties that we have that come from different partners in the business (vendors and retailer). Sometimes it gets hard to balance them simultaneously, along with coaching our associates and meeting our own personal goals too.
