    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Genuine passion of co-workers to try and provide a "magical" experience for customers. Most employees have the right balance of being focused on driving profitability while knowing they are ultimately not 'saving lives'. Good discount.

    Cons

    Pay is low in the retail industry, period. In the salaried executive roles, there seems to be constant change and restructures.

    I worked at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    The manager role has a great deal of autonomy that requires you to really use and sharpen your creativity and problem solving skills. The quality of customer interaction is high. The company is fun and flexible, the colleagues are team oriented, the tasks are challenging, the work force is diverse, and the managers are sharp and supportive.

    Cons

    Some long hours are required, staffing issues are a challenge, and rigid corporate structure sometimes slows down decision making processes.
