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

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Summer Fridays
    Retail Discount
    Great coworkers

    Cons

    *Widespread Nepotism
    *Promotions based on favoritism or years suffered at company, not actual merit
    *High turnover due to lack of recognition and internal politics
    *Low performers/incompetent hires are somehow are in the highest positions & fly under the radar & get away with doing zero work.
    *Zero transparency (everything is *hush hush* and secretive)
    *Painful lack of leadership/structure/organization
    *High number of low quality hires that seem to lack real expertise.
    *Low Salary, not competitive at all.
    *Horrible benefits.
    *No room for growth, stagnant career.
    *Everything needs *approval* from east coast. Tedious waterfall process that they try to mask as "Agile & Lean"
    *Meetings take up 90% of your day with 10% left for real work. Half the meetings are utterly useless and repetitive and most of the time you are left wondering why you were even required to be there as it provided no value. Half the people in the meetings are multi-tasking on their cellphones/laptops & paying no attention.
    *Outdated tools
    *No design system
    *Lack of consistency across all channels (mobile, web, desktop)
    *Marketing seems to hold the most power, forcing subpar & ridiculous design decisions without any valid user research.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within for those who have shown merit. Retain your talent with recognition. Stop with the endless meetings. Get rid of the waterfall process where you need *approval* from east coast. Invest in your employees tech stack. Follow industry standards and stop trying to blatantly copy competitors. Be transparent. Have an actual design system.
