    Pros

    Target provides employees with opportunities to advance themselves and receive training. They also have an employee hotline that can be used if employees feel uncomfortable speaking to management. Their processes from appraisals to "best practices" help drive organization and cohesion.

    Cons

    Work / life balance is difficult as an exec at Target. They expect a lot and sometimes with limited payroll and resources. This leads execs to take the burden on their own back and work extra long hours to over compensate. Target has a performance based culture which at times is borderline too aggressive. Turnover among execs is high. In addition to this, the pressure placed on Store Team Leads and District Team Leads is high. Sometimes this pressure leads management to make poor decisions about personnel movement and retention. Politics also need to be regulated at the district level.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the integrity and confidentiality of the Employee Hotline. Assess the tools you give management teams before driving results hard. Is
