    Current Employee - Senior in Egypt, AR

    I have been working at Bestseller full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    After five years of work i can say through the up and downs, good and bad times it is not only been fruitfull but one of the most great multi lessons a some one could experiance.

    Cons

    Benifits are not so available how ever they do exist, perks are encourged by managment but not always experienced during the day and promotions takes time and effort and they come at the last moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    based on clear stable guided policies and pre defined task medels, Decenterlization efforts needs to be established even in some of the daily work were it would lighten the burden over the remote managment at the parent entity.

    Former Employee - Senior Accountant in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Bestseller full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The culture is relaxed, the workforce young and creative, and the management structure shallow to allow good exposure.
    The hours are consistent and flexible except for busy periods, which is to be expected.
    With so many centralised functions, there is a lot of on hand support.

    Cons

    Once early responsibilities are fulfilled, the role did not offer much in terms of self-expansion and quickly became repetitive.
    Remuneration is below market rate given its a fashion company.
    Perks outside of some free clothes are non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Explore potential to offer staff more responsibility or training to further progression.

    I have been working at Bestseller full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The working atmosphere is relaxed and working hours are extremely easy. Lots of yummy cakes as reward even if you only perform 10 percent of your actual capability.

    Cons

    It's a good company if you want to have a basic routine job but not if you are ambitious to build a progressive career and want to challenge yourself. Average level of qualification of employees is low so there is not much of a chance to learn from your peers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire truly qualified people and once they have proven their ability give them responsibilities according to their ability and an opportunity to grow
