    I worked at Macy's Technology full-time

    Pros

    My fellow technical staff members were fantastic to work with. There was always knowledge sharing and excellent teamwork

    Cons

    There is absolutely no work/life balance. Some managers are allowed to be very abusive to people on their team, (giving negative feedback with no data and no improvement plan) with little or no feedback from their managers or HR.

    people, culture, competitive salaries, technology, methodology

    Pros

    Co workers. Had a great team of people to work with. The industry is fun but not without its current challenges

    Cons

    Lots of changes and focus is not on employees but on bottom line. Been 3 waves of layoffs in recent past. Unstable and uncertain future.

    Advice to Management

    Need to better evaluate talent. Promotions and management changes all seem to be good ole boy network and not evaluation of abilities or qualifications. No bonuses and benefits are weak lagging behind I industry and tech competition around town. Start leading and not reacting to everything Amazon does or doesn't do.

    I have been working at Macy's Technology full-time

    Pros

    Technical staff all work well together
    Lots of good ideas
    Work/Life Balance is important to the company
    Current CEO is awesome

    Cons

    With installment of CTO - concentration on west coast is his priority
    Innovation is being killed due to land grabs technology areas
    To many VPs and Business trying to do development
    To many politics

    Advice to Management

    All the right buzz words, innovate, be bold, but innovation is dying very quickly and good people leaving. Telling people to innovate then having business berate the innovation needs to stop. Promoting all the people from west coast is one sided.

    I have been working at Macy's Technology full-time

    Pros

    Life balance is great. 401K matching, a plus. Fully paid 8-week Maternity/Paternity leave is awesome new addition. Chill group of guys in IT dept that's more than willing to help but limited as "budget is low". I wish I could say more upsides but it has gone downhill just as much as its stocks has.

    Cons

    - Low salary
    - Expensive health care
    - Limited career growth
    - Getting equipment needed to do the job here is like "pulling teeth"
    - Low budget
    - Politics worse than the 2017 elections, etc.

    Pros

    Culture is conducive to growth. Folks are helpful when called upon.

    Cons

    Silos. Some folks do not know how to reach across the aisle to ask for help. A soft skill that takes time to learn. Just because someone is good at technology, does not mean they know how to work with people.

    Advice to Management

    Work with lower management to address the issue of closing the gap with miscommunication. To many things fall through gaps. This can be attained when leadership become experts in communicating.

    Pros

    Values all levels of the organization. Believes in diversification. Contributes to society through several give back campaigns. Focused efforts on internal promotions with a good mix of hiring new outside talent. Drive to get to newer technologies even with the 150 years of retail history.

    Cons

    The benefits package is not competitive in technology more reflective or a retail organization. Many technology offices offer stock options, better health benefits packages, more flexible remote working practices. Hierarchical organization is in place.
