Inconsistent Approach to Colleagues

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Nottingham, England (UK)

I worked at Boots for more than 10 years

ProsGreat company values
Customer focused
Regular pay days
Good discounts

ConsCompany values are constantly discussed - these values are not always delivered from the top of the organisation
Low pay compared to other similar roles with other companies - hard to gain worklife balance, it's the norm to work all hours to constantly deliver
It takes more than company discount to retain employees

Advice to Senior ManagementConsistency is a challenge for your focus - particularly performance rating within teams.
The new Boots approach has changed the way people feel about working for you.
People feel undervalued.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
