    I worked at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Vacation, personal days that don't count against sick time

    Cons

    There are middle managers everywhere that really don't know or care what you do, they just keep peacocking trying to climb the ladder. Be prepared for meetings galore. Your real purpose is to make the boss look good.
    Upward mobility has been limited since they put fresh MBA's on a management
    track without any prior management experience
    I was always having to document my process so 'anyone' can do it, ie send it to India.

    Advice to Management

    Stop force feeding politically correct messages on employee's.
    Value each individuals ability's, not their ability to drink the cool aid and tote the company line.
