    I worked at Macy's Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In the web office there are some legitimately talented, passionate people. These folks were great to work with and I learned a lot from them.

    Cons

    Upper-mid management level (think Director) was extremely cut-throat and toxic - this funneled down to an extremely poor employment experience, where inter-office politics became the norm, word-smithing was half the job, and the stress was too low for the compensation offered.

    For developers and analysts, there is no good reason for working here, when there are numerous startups in the area with better compensation and more perks.

    Promotions were also relatively rare for in-house people attempting to work up the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Dramatic shift culture that needs to be nurtured from senior VP / group VP down.

    I worked at Macy's Technology full-time

    Pros

    Nice location in downtown San Francisco. Retail/eCommerce specific work. They use modern tech stacks.

    Cons

    Silo-ed team management. No overtime pay or they take it away after you join. Variable team moral, it seems more people leaving than joining.

    Advice to Management

    A more cohesive management structure. Need to pay people competitively.

    I worked at Macy's Technology (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Eastern US location has really solid professionals with good technical expertise. This location has good leadership with integrity. The middle and lower ranks are very technical and good problem solvers. They see the big picture.

    Cons

    Western US location are in a struggle for power and lack best practice experience. More interested in usurping authority and bypassing common sense.

    Advice to Management

    Follow advice of those with common sense objectives and the knowledge to achieve objectives. Do not let those that seek power for power's sake lead the conversation and direction. Let smart people work and give them what they need.

    Pros

    great company culture and very open to allowing you to grow both professionally and personally. lots of opportunities for movement within the company!

    for a 'tech' company, the systems are quite archaic, creating a bit of a learning curve during on boarding.
