    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a kind, happy, positive place to work. The atmosphere is friendly and inclusive. As a developer, I have been able to work on a wide variety of projects and learn new technologies. There is always opportunity to grow and take on responsibility if that is what you want.

    Cons

    It's a big company, so tech changes slowly. Some people get stuck in the same stacks with similar work for a long time. Some people like that, but it can also limit growth. They under-invest in technology infrastructure and focus more on delivering products/features, over long-term stability.

    Advice to Management

    Actually invest in technology - improve infrastructure, tooling, growth.

    Fun upbeat place to work, co-workers were fun to work with. Management was great to work with from department to general manager. The best retail job I have ever had sad to see places like this closing due the changing times
