    I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great work life balance, and able to prioritize work and home when needed. Interesting work, with an innovative and strategic focus.

    Cons

    The benefits (pay, medical, 401K) aren't the best, but for the industry are pretty good.

      I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Some talented and nice people there. Decent work/life balance.

      Cons

      Middle management inertia makes every project disconnected or start and stop. Intense politics and hierarchy at every level. People leaders either micromanage or leave you hanging on your own. Either way you are not enabled nor empowered to deliver projects at a reasonable speed or make any positive impact.

      Advice to Management

      Have 360º performance review vs only top down. Understand your people leaders are what's blocking the company to move forward.
