Big box retail is a tough sector since Amazon changed the game

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Hemel Hempstead, England (UK)

ProsHeritage of the brand
Some great senior people
Rapidly changing industry
Household name
Technology sector is cutting edge

ConsPublic perception is that Dixons still make 40% margin on high tech, so the brand isn't loved.
Everything is about operations or product pricing. Limited opportunity to build rapport with suppliers and/or an engaging customer experience.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep going with the transformation. Work on brand image and ensuring there are good career opportunities for the workforce.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
