      I worked at Target full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Great Benefits, Great WFH ethic, Great co-workers. Everyone took their job serious and personal. It was great being in such an environment. Good activities for emplooyees outside of work.

      Cons

      work life balance is emphasized but not practiced when it comes to work load. Leadership is so not diverse, mostly white males.

      Advice to Management

      Having manager who are supportive and understanding of an overwhelming work load will help you retain your employees!

    • Good company that's headed in the right direction, but be make sure you like your manager.

      I have been working at Target full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      - Incredible talent and drive from that talent - Recent restructure of incentives puts more focus on One-Team company approach vs individual performance (only) - Target really tries to do the right thing for guests, employees, and communities - A good manager (and there are many) can make the experience amazing for you at the company. - Good management gives teams a lot of latitude to make decisions and set direction...

      Cons

      - There are a lot of old-school managers still left within the company that have outdated ideas on how teams perform and get work done , how much micromanagement teams need, and how much control of where teams do their work. - In pockets of the business there are still outdated org hierarchies and traditions in terms of who gets to have a say and stake in decision-making. - There is a bit of a ceiling once you reach...

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your teams that are doing the work. They know their areas of expertise best and are likely the most effective at being able to inform larger strategic decisions that need to be made.

      I have been working at Target full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      - Work life balance: you get to work from home when ever the weather is bad. As long as you get your work done, WFH is not a problem

      Cons

      This is specific to EDABI - BI & Analytics: - No career profession: Leaders recognize that you need to be promoted but do not promote you. I've heard a leader say that until someone from a higher level leaves, they will not promote you. Some cite budget constraints. Many end up being in the same level for more than 6-7 years. - There are many directors who do not really do any meaningful work. - Salary is...

      Advice to Management

      Replace directors who have been in the same place for years. They're the bottle neck. And seriously PROMOTE people!!
