    I worked at Homebase Limited full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly staff and a fun working atmosphere.

    Cons

    Although there are training programs available they are rarely followed through on. Internal progression is not happening at more senior levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop recruiting external managers that don't tend to last rather than promote from within.
