    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - There are a lot of great people that work at Macy's. I have many close friends that still work there and love it - All 3 of my bosses were fantastic to work for - It's the place to be if you are deadset on the fashion industry

    Cons

    - C suite leadership is poor. Lacking direction and communication to the rest of the company - Due to said lack of direction, there are massive restructures multiple times per year and you just have to hope your job isn't cut - A significant amount of people in management positions have incredible fashion/retail brains, but have next to zero management capability - Technology is incredibly outdated. Some systems looks and feel like they are from the 90s.

    I worked at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    People were greatand I learned a lot. Employee discount.

    Cons

    It's Macy's. Felt no real upside for long term opportunity. Retail is a dying breed. Maybe longer term on the digital side of things. But with Amazon who knows.
