A great start to my career

Department Manager (Former Employee)
Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)

I worked at ASDA full-time for more than 3 years

Pros1) very good development and training for aspiring managers. 2) strong values meaning you get to work with some great people in a friendly and supportive environment. 3) a great sense of accomplishment at the end of each day especially after those long and hard ones. 4) there's no better place to work over Xmas with the vibe and pressures.

Cons1) some dictatorship styled managers around as well as incapable managers. 2) low pay when training and first sign off which makes you jealous of the overpaid externals. 3) lots of politics which is probably true for all large businesses. 4) can be very long days even if your dept is strong you have to wait for the others until you can go home.

Advice to Senior Management1) avoid dictatorship and micro management, give the dept manager real responsibilities and only hold accountable when these are not achieved - not when your in a bad mood. 2) take people surveys more seriously as there are some very poor store and trading managers out there who need their behaviours reviewed.
