    Pros

    Great co-workers, clean atmosphere, opportunity to grow

    Cons

    Low salary. For all the work that is put in the salary should match.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking because you have a title it gives you the right to condemn, belittle, and speak harshly to others. Being a leader and not a boss can gain you more respect.

    I worked at Macy's Systems & Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are good people working hard to get things done, despite senior leadership.

    Cons

    Process is used to slow delivery and creativity. Not every group works as part of one organization, rather the work to protect their knowledge area.

    Salaries are low
    Benefits are not competitive
    There is a glass ceiling for technical people.

    Advice to Management

    Work out how you can build morale and provide an innovative environment. The stick and carrot will only work for so long.

    Prompted technical staff don't necessarily make the best management.

    Pros

    Nice people and some fun parties.

    Cons

    Management is in a tail spin. They are stuck in spreadsheets and old technology and will welcome no new ideas. Very sad to see this group bring down an American icon.

    Advice to Management

    Leave and see what other companies do in the world. 20 to 30 years at the same job is hurting you and Macy's.

    Work from home is about it

    Cons

    Buzz word centric management with zero leadership skills. No ability to take Executive management (New York) direction and create actionable plans that are well thought out and make sense. Leadesrhip by chaos

    Advice to Management

    Find talented people that with accomplishment from outstide Macy's. The time is now to find best and brightest and shed the burden of the attrition based leadership. They lack vision, expertise, and experience
