    Pros

    Staff discount is very generous, good online training program, the Gardening Club often contains excellent offers, especially when combined with staff discount

    Cons

    Considering the profit the company makes, paying staff minimum wage is unacceptable. Experienced Head office and management staff replaced by generic yes men who don't understand garden retail, resulting in a loss of identity, a cheapening of the whole shop floor experience and a fall in profits. Head office frequently disorganized often resulting in conflicting and bizarre instructions coming down to store level. Far too many senior area managers with high opinions of themselves, unwilling to mix with the regular shop floor staff and unable to contribute anything meaningful aside from weak cliches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less area managers, especially those that contribute absolutely nothing meaningful. Show your staff they are valued by paying them what they are worth - to be regularly making the profit you make and to claim that employee happiness and development is so important to you when you cannot even be bothered to pay the living wage is a complete contradiction.
