    Pros

    - Lots of genuinely nice people working there
    - Promote from within so good opportunities to progress
    - Move between departments, lots of opportunities to see other sides of the business
    - Lots of emphasis on importance of team meetings and 1-2-1s with managers

    Cons

    - Since the merger with Walgreens the culture has shifted a lot. Senior management seem to be under a lot of pressure and this has filtered down, so that everyone feels under pressure, overworked and under-appreciated.
    Low morale after the merger led to a large number of people who had been with the company a number of years to leave.

    - During my time I came up with a few new ideas which were successful, but I never received any credit or appreciation for my ideas being successful.
    - Blame culture. Whenever anything went wrong, all anyone was interested in doing was finding who was to blame, rather than fixing the problem.
    - In my role I would regularly work through my lunch, as well as an extra 1 1/2 to 2 hours work each day. This was expected and not rewarded in anyway. However other team has significantly less work, would take regular breaks and often leave early because of lack of work, however salary did not reflect different levels of our jobs.
    - Virtually no perks.
    - Low salary

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about what a great place to work Boots is, and instead genuinely take an interest in your staff, appreciate their hard work, celebrate their success and reward them appropriately.
