    I worked at Macy's as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Recruitment office is amazing! Pay is about average for San Francisco at $30/hr + $1500 bonus for housing. Overtime eligible. Great new office. The people were knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Went to company outings frequently.

    Cons

    Onboarding can be confusing and shortage of MacBook Pros contributes to poor planning for onboarding. Also feedback as far as team placement wasn't really considered.

    Advice to Management

    Have more 1 on 1 with TECH EDPS and interns!

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a kind, happy, positive place to work. The atmosphere is friendly and inclusive. As a developer, I have been able to work on a wide variety of projects and learn new technologies. There is always opportunity to grow and take on responsibility if that is what you want.

    Cons

    It's a big company, so tech changes slowly. Some people get stuck in the same stacks with similar work for a long time. Some people like that, but it can also limit growth. They under-invest in technology infrastructure and focus more on delivering products/features, over long-term stability.

    Advice to Management

    Actually invest in technology - improve infrastructure, tooling, growth.

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

    Pros

    A mostly friendly staff with a pleasant atmosphere. A good job if you need a side job for seasonal work, although be prepared for some stress if it's in the winter time.

    Cons

    I had a major problem with one co-worker. Worst thing is that the coupons don't work on many, many popular items. It's kind-of a joke, really.

    Advice to Management

    Try to respect employees' time and schedules.

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

    Pros

    Company doing well on account of the product line they carried.
    Standard bonus given every year.

    Cons

    Majority of the work done offshore
    Vendor leads on site, who know the code base as they worked on it offshore.
    Poor code quality, jenkins builds broken in the mornings on account of offshore checkin.
    Offshore leads more concerned about job safety as they are on H1 visa.
    The environment depends on the manager.

    Advice to Management

    Try to have core knowledge within the teams here. Employees should be the go to for architectural issues not offshore vendor.
