    Exciting, Fast Paced and innovative

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    Pros-Brand that needs no introduction at all
    -opportunity to influence the commerce platform upgrade and e-business strategy

    Cons-I worked at the headoffice in London and the lack of communication between departments was frustrating.
    -A lot of investment into IT, eCommerce and Marketing could be saved if there was more unity and team work

    Advice to Senior Management-Open your eyes and review your IT team and its infrastructure you could save on your bills by hiring professionals and not outsourcing to someone who knows nothing.
