Pros: merchandise discount
Cons: low pay, benefits are mediocre at best, the 401k plan gets a c-, no holiday party, no company 401k contributions
Everyday the workforce turn off their alarms and sigh - we have to return to work in technology at Nordstrom. We march in to another day of sadness, anger and despair. We are cast adrift in a sea of constant uncertainty. We can never accomplish anything due to ever-changing teams due to leadership re-organization - and a lack of support from our "servant – more... leadership". We are meant to be agile - instead we are stuck in the mire of waterfall+scrum = scrummerfall.
Leadership appears to be constantly battling each other - do their bonuses depend on how many people quit? Because if so, they are racking up the bonus dollars! It almost feels like getting people to quit is the goal.
Best part of the job? Immediate co-workers - Misery loves company.
Many of the positive reviews of this company are salespeople - don't take their experience as the experience in the technology organization. We are fighting against old ways and old technology - I would not recommend this company - this has been a miserable job with little hope for improvement. – less
