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

    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!

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 8 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 for their respective areas

    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    - There are a lot of old-school managers still left within the company that have outdated ideas on how teams perform and get work done , how much micromanagement teams need, and how much control of where teams do their work.
    - In pockets of the business there are still outdated org hierarchies and traditions in terms of who gets to have a say and stake in decision-making.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 a level 6 individual contributor role. Historically you moved from there to management (which often times wasn't ideal), but now you're just sort of stuck.

    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 (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance, lots of cross functional org opportunities for lateral and vertical move. Plenty of respect, reward and recognition for individual and team performance. Great focus on diversity and inclusion. Overall work culture is the best I have experienced in my 16 years of my professional life.

    Cons

    Mixed direction from leadership makes it hard for a consistent motivating culture.

    I worked at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My co-workers were friendly and helped me several times. My supervisors regularly listened to me and offered support. The campus itself is expansive, including a food court, gym, lounge, health center, and park.

    Cons

    Only get this job if you really love customer support. Otherwise, it's boring and tedious.
