Many Senior Business Partners still need to go!!!

Titles and positions given to people with little to no experience to lead anything!!! Most are time and resource wasters! Target is getting rid of good employees but keeping people that NEVER should have been given their current positions! And now they wonder what the hell went wrong with their BIG ... read more

It's not the number of leaders or levels of leaders that is the problem at target....

But the crap leaders that have been put in place. The optimum number of direct reports is around 5-7. That requires a lot of leaders. Guaranteed that all these individual contributors at Target....could not decide what to do, they all have different opinions and half do nothing but bitch. Hire the ... read more

1st time in my long career

I have worked for several companies and Target in several roles. All of them had challenges to overcome, but the current leadership at Target is the most toxic and incompetent I have ever experienced. The shareholders may be short term satisfied bur should not have a long term view. I would sell ... read more

Maybe Target DevOps isn't all it's says it is?

I am looking to join one of the many teams claiming DevOps at TTS. Looking at some recent previous posts, it appears everyone is not impressed with how it's doing. Calling it DevOOps and poking fun of the culture of MacBooks, stickers, and t-shirts. I have met RC and HM at various DevOps ... read more

Who are your real friends at Target?

A lot of women did not buy the FFF, either, like me (the original poster). I really wanted to work, not go outside and play horseshoes as a "team building" activity. I wasn't a crabass about it, I had fun (hey, it was summer and they were paying me), but I didn't respect it much. I still want to ... read more

More than 75% of TTS to be let go?

Coworker was in an all-dotcom mtg yesterday. New CIO showed up and said he ran a much more complicated operation with just 500 people. Doesn't TTS have at least 2000 right now?

Bystanders will not be untouched, as TTS goes, so goes many in HQ

My work depends on the approval and funding of projects that must be supported by TTS . If TTS is cutting headcount, obviously they must be scaling back plans to support projects and initiatives of their clients. If the people in TTS who generally execute the technical work of my pyramid's projects ... read more

Listening to TTS leaders explain how they see new orgs and strategy......

Is like fingernails on a chalkboard. They are clueless and it is painfully obvious.

More TTS VPs gone

Lost two more VPS today :-( (fake sadness). Does anyone in the C-suite know how to evaluate talent? Derodes promoted these clowns to VP after he fired all their predecessors. Now half of those VPS are gone at MM's hands. The other half are crapping their pants. Their incompetence is making me sick!

Recent survey for TTS non technical people

Recently all non technical people in TTS (BA + PM + SPM + DM +SDM) took survey. By looking at the questions, I am not sure whether any of our non technical people will match with the new roles (especially for SPM and SDM and also for BA who moved to the PM role). Also, what is the need for ... read more

They are sure making TNC look very pretty.

Roads are being fixed, new plants are going in, they are turning on the sprinklers around 4 PM every day, lawn games are in the courtyard, fire marshal was out a few weeks ago, they are skimming the pond, and building services have been more present around the building. Hmmm, I wonder what that is ... read more

Everything wrong with Target Operating Principles.

So there is a movement afoot on insidetgt to identify and then vote on practices that are painful to team members and maybe a waste of time. Sad thing is that as usual instead of identifying the process with the most savings associated with cutting or improving the ones being looked at are those ... read more

Devops presenting in meetings

At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points and my god have mercy on your soul.

Post it notes = transformation

I've been unfairly critical of Briann, it seems we've been transforming after all! Based on the clowns I see on inside tgt... Post it notes and zombie stickers are transformation! I'm glad we have such a tangible measurement of transformation! (/sarcasm)
