      White liberal feminist utopia

      Pros

      Nordstrom was a very positive work environment.

      Cons

      The company culture is to portray everything in a positive light, problems and issues do not exist, only opportunities for improvement. Choosing to only frame situations in positive terms is a disservice to everyone involved. It crippled my ability to share input and feedback when presented with something were the 'opportunities for improvement' vastly outnumbered its potential for success. The number of my co-workers that felt the need to code-switch, is remarkable considering the level of performative inclusivity displayed by the company. As a white guy, working for Nordstrom was a vivid illustration of the difference between white liberal feminism and more inclusive types of feminism, my sistas have been telling me about. Sure women represented a majority of management roles, however, there is still a culture that excludes those who do not conform.

      good experience overall

      Pros

      - The team is very inclusive and friendly - If you thrive in a fast-paced work environment, this is it - The work culture is very welcoming to all different kinds of people - HR is responsive to needs - Mgmt. was at one point great, but recently has declined a bit

      Cons

      - Repetitive, almost mind-numbing but you must keep a smile on your face - Very long hours and you will always be on your feet - If you happen to not fit in, it's very obvious
