    Pros

    Colleagues are dedicated and sincere. The human resources department is staffed with employees that really care. Management has been increasingly sensitive to the diverse make-up of their employees. Macy's is an exciting part of American culture. It's iconic special events like Passport, Flower Show, Fireworks and Thanksgiving Day Parade contributes to the community while positively reflecting Macy's brand image.

    Cons

    Main focus is profit. Although there is some philanthropy there should be significantly more. So many employees it's sometimes hard to be seen as an important individual.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more creativity. Empower individuals to suggest and implement change.

    Pros

    It all comes down to respect and integrity. They realized the key to having a productive work environment means you must hire not only talented, excellent, pleasant, team players they have to also provide all the resources
    required and keep the work force organized and happy. Clear realistic goals and decent pay. This is how they get the high quality results they must have to sell their product! Macy's West (Star point Studios) understood that when the work force and their environment are healthy happy and well maintained the product will be excellent! healthy and hap When the work place is chaotic or or the employees can't get along in a healthy way or aren't
    At Macy's West / Star Point Studios they provided an excellent work environment
    complete with state of the art equipment (enough for everyone) a great staff that kept things organized and running as smoothly as allowed by changing markets and events .They also appreciated their workers weather we were freelance or staff
    we were told regularly how well we were doing and offered every assistance as we required to complete our tasks well. Pay was correct as well.

    Cons

    Macy's West/Starpoint Studios is no longer opened. Macy's moved operations back east! The head offices didn't get the benifit of our studio! If they had worked directly with us they would have kept the doors open I'm sure.

    Advice to Management

    See above! Oh well too late..talk to the former head of Starpoint Studios about how to make a great work environment and how to build a great team!

    Pros

    Work/life balance is a focus here, so people are not regularly working long hours or to the point of exhaustion. The company strives to take on all kinds of new challenges, which ensures that things do not get boring. And management is eager to build people's careers through new opportunities and promotions

    Cons

    Benefits lag behind other companies in the area due to the fact that the .com side is still a part of the overall retail company
