It's pretty good. Old-school place, but good maternity leave and PTO after a year.

Work hard and speak up if you feel that your work is not being acknowledged. It's a tough retail landscape so yearly raises are not reflective of your contributions.

    Think this varies by team, but recently the company instituted a work from home policy and other flexible work arrangements due to low morale and high turnover

Good employer. Almost all women. Only downside is getting on managements bad side. Promotions are often based on who they like vs merit.

    Bloomingdales recently enacted a flex work policy in the corporate office. You can shift your hours to fit your needs (8-5 or come in late/leave early during the weeks) and have the option to work from home up to 2 days per week.

This is a great place while young and unencumbered by familial obligations.

    Maybe. If you have children, then any retailer is not family friendly. You'll work all hours (executives too) and rewards are little.

Be careful, it may seem great at the start, but men are pronoted faster than women to executive positions

On the digital team, men are routinely paid more than women for the exact same job. I echo what other women have said about the reviews: I was often given feedback about changing my approach that would never have been given to men while bad behavior from men was tolerated and rewarded. The health benefits are terrible. It's a huge company so they provide the same benefits to corporate employees as they do for retail employees and they are not family friendly. They covered exactly $0 of my fertility testing and treatment. To quote a male coworker: "There's something very wrong with a company that has so many female employees but actively discourages parenthood." I believe their maternity leave is 6 weeks at partial pay.

Once you reach a certain level - you are stuck. There's very little time spent nurturing or developing your career at this company. Promotions are basically based on favoritism and nepotism.

Bloomingdale's is a company of women run by a boys' club at the top. There are few female senior executives in the company, even fewer with children. There is also an unfortunate tolerance for unprofessional behavior and misconduct. A tip: For three months following maternity leave, select pyramids (RTW and Men's) allow for working from home on Fridays. This is typically negotiated directly with a manager, and is not communicated as an official policy.

There are many women working within the company; but men are consistently in more powerful, higher paid roles. Also, sexist feedback is often given to females in management roles (Be warmer and friendlier with your team) and not with males.
