    I worked at Nordstrom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, work-life balance, good pay

    Cons

    Good luck going home at a reasonable hour when it's the holidays/Anniversary sale. Management is extremely political. If you're lucky your manager will be an angel - if not, good luck airing your grievances.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so political -- your employees want to feel like you have their backs. You usually don't.

    Perks are great. Discounts on everything including restaurant. Free stuff from time to time. Great clientele. Friendly environment. Good benefits

    Postings for promotion or store or rack openings should be available so staff can decide

    Excellent Brand
    Management treats employees the way they want the employees to treat the customers.
    We don't start Christmas until after Thanksgiving. Family is important.

    Nordstrom is sometimes too nice to customers cause some to take advantage of the policies and sometimes the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your employees. Thank you for changing the return policy.
