    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Target for more than a year

    Pros

    very flexible work hours, ability to work in multiple areas (i.e. you aren't stuck in a cube),

    Cons

    way too many unnecessary meetings, kind of felt like high-school

    Advice to Management

    do more hiring outside of Minnesota

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    Working at corporate HQ was an enlightening experience and I learned a lot about the importance of building good working relationships across the company. When I had managers who valued my contributions and treated me with respect it was very enjoyable to work there. With all the business areas comprising Target Corp., there is a lot of opportunity to explore different functional areas and roles.

    Cons

    Because Target is such a huge company, there is large variation in the quality of management and leadership by pyramid and division. Good managers can be your best advocates while vindictive ones can treat you like there's a bullseye on your forehead. I experienced both the best and worst of leaders in my years at Target. I fear that as long as job seekers continue to perceive Target as a highly desirable place to... work and Target leadership persists in believing that "everyone wants to work for Target," the company will lack much incentive to retain most of its talented employees.

    Advice to Management

    Where to begin? I would say to value employees, acknowledge their worth, and compensate them fairly rather than "churn 'em and burn 'em."
