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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Very reasonable work life balance. Strong effort in making it a better place to work - Summer Fridays (half days), additional PTO days, Work-From-Home options.

    Cons

    Senior Management is severely uneducated when it comes to the technical aspects of Macys.com. Internal battle of the company lies between being a Tech company or being a Retail company. Competitors have ample opportunity to surpass Macys. Stocks/Sales have shown this being the case.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to learn and educate. Retail is changing more than ever before and relying on past experience is not good enough.
