    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good amount of vacation, summer fridays (get off early), work-from-home flexibility, unlimited sick days (for corporate office employees at least).

    Cons

    Structural changes blindside people every year with layoffs. HR is a nightmare. Not many paid holidays, even as a corporate office employee. Also, it seems like the restructures always flatten the hierarchy so it's even harder to work your way up.
