"It was an amazing experience to learn and understand how the industry works; you get to meet so many people while learning how the fashion business works and how to deal with customers from all over the world. Compensation could be better but you’ll have a lot of freedom, flexibility, and gain a lot of knowledge working here. Management in some areas could be better but HR is great, "

"Policies were being introduced to support WLB at the time like working from home though not a ton of widespread adoption. Though junior employees skewed very female the leadership team’s composition did not reflect that."

"Beware of the intense corporate culture. It can turn toxic. The majority of senior management has only worked at this company their entire careers, which restricts fresh perspective and ideas. There is also a lack of diversity in senior level roles. "

" It operates under a culture of fear and gaslighting, I have seen people get stress ulcers from the horrible work environment. I saw 18 people out of 27 people leave within a year. I' honestly feel like this workplace gives you PTSD. I have also seen HR complicit in the abuse in which they will lie or make up things even if you have proof otherwise in order to deny you. HR has also restructured the entire workforce 3 times in one year, and combined 2 jobs into one but not even give you a one cent raise. If you have ever wanted to know what it feels like to be in an abusive and toxic relationship, go work here. They are very racist and just utterly the worst parts of high school mean girls and worst parts of humanity combined. Imagine the type of 50-year old women who refer to high school interns as "skinterns". Imagine the pettiest women in the world and the most two faced women. That;s your coworkers. You get no support, no training and it is a culture where everyone seeks to screw you over. I have worked in so many places and I would honestly rather be stabbed than work here for one more day.Do not trust their two faced personalities. You will literally be constantly abused and back stabbed. STAY FAR FAR FAR AWAY "

"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."

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

"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."
