    I have been working at Target full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's laid back and there aren't many work pressures.
    There's free coffee and food
    Fuseball, tt, and many people to play with.

    Cons

    Since there is nothing much to do, and lots of coffee to drink when not doing it, there's a lot of time on people's hands to create politics at every level. In my team, which is a technical team, they change the leader every quarter on some pretext or the other, much of the time it is clear that the leader in Minneapolis needs some local Lackey and keeps changing their mind on whom. There is no roadmap as much though there are many meetings around it, because there's 5 managers for every engineer or analyst or working employee. These managers keep 1/1s that are recurring , they also keep 3-4 on 1s and then many on many meetings. Every two quarters, they start a re architecture road map, no one knows what's the difference between re-arching ring, refactoring, and just coding. The SVP says things like we are number 1 in selling swimwear, thanks to you all your efforts, to the engineering teams that have no idea why their efforts led to selling swim wear. She started many efforts that failed I hear, so she's been rewarded with running digital which is code for internet commerce. We are all in one happy mess, but there's TT, free food, access to compute, and coffee. So we are here trying to make the best of those.

    Advice to Management

    I think there is too much management who are
    h trying to survive each other. It's best not to have any in the first place when it comes to Target. Sometimes we workers get caught in their politics and it isn't the best value for money and time for us. In the tiny few lakhs they pay us, we are happy not to get dragged into politics.
    Also, stop putting fake reviews every week on Glassdoor. Glassdoor needs some basic detection software for companies posting fake reviews. Hinte : their ratings jump from 3-4 within a week and back.
