    I worked at Home Retail full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Home Retail Group are a fair and good employer. They expect a very high standard of work, professionalism and commitment from their staff but recognise and reward excellent performance very well. They support their staff providing good training and always try to promote from within. They offer good opportunities to move between departments and within the group. Senior management effectively communicate all changes in company objectives so all management grades on clear on what has changed and why. A first rate retailer and exceptional employer.

    Cons

    They are sometimes unrealistic in their expectations of what their teams can deliver in tight timescales given. This can frustration within teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give teams more realistic timescales to meet deadlines so the quality and quantity of output is maximised.

    Pros

    It is very chilled out, not much pressure at work. Everyone is very down to earth.

    Cons

    It is an average business to work for however theres not much growth potential within the business. Some of the guys have been stuck in the same role for up to 10 years. Management are not very clued up with technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring some spark in to the workplace. Encourage and Promote rising stars in your teams.
