    I worked at Macy's

    Pros

    Merchendise discount of 20% as employee discount is the only positive .

    Cons

    1. No Medical and No 401 k .HR will mis guide you . 2. IFS devision Never allow any one to take sick and they insist on many answers for one hour doctor appointments also. 3. Only six general holidays 4. Work hours are not flexible and they expect you to work at least 12-16 hours a day without any extra pay or time off .

    Advice to Management

    Specially to IFS management - Please recruit proffessionals who does not have any family or children , so that they will meet your requirements. Please do tell people before joining about your medical benifits.

    I have been working at Macy's

    Pros

    20% discount at macys stores is the best benifit i can think off. Huge Sign on Bonus is one more benifit , Which they give to subside no medical and almost no 401k . They let you work from home, But after working your specified time at work. They maintain the balance of diversity

    Cons

    Technology and business are growing at the rate of 40% and employees are treated very badly in IFS . HR will give all false promises but you will know after joining that you have the worst medical plans and worst 401k plans and no benifits , You will be shocked . Even for taking one day sick you have to call several people. It is one the worst technical companies to work with.

    Advice to Management

    No Advice.

    I worked at Macy's

    Pros

    20% employee discount in macys

    Cons

    They really abuse make you work 16 hours specially in IFS devision.(macys.com and bloomingdales.com) . Think 100 times before you join. Horrible only for Techies. No documentation , For doctor appointment also you have to schedule and take approvals from many people. If you call sick for one day they will probe . Though you are elligible for 10 sick as they say but in reality it is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on personal life in IFS specially , other wise you are heading for a serious brain drain soon. You might out source and still get the job done. But if you want employees here , you got to change.
