I worked at John Lewis full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Really good benefits, friendly people, helpful HR, comfortable work environment

Cons

HR had no idea that they don't sponsor people so my job was cut short as a surprise. Promotion is slow but they really take care of you at JL, so people are mostly happy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Could work a lot more on innovation and employee growth to catch up to the times.

    Pros

    Fantastic bonus every year. Partners are paid a percentage of their yearly wage as a bonus every march. 10-15% is usual but it has been as high as 20%

    Cons

    If your face doesn't fit.... Not the friendliest place to work. Your pay is dependant on which 'band' you fall into, but you managers pay depends on how much wages they save so getting a pay rise is like blood from a stone.

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    They look after their people
    Good perks
    Very social
    Nice corporate culture

    Cons

    The only disadvantage of John Lewis that I can think of is that they offer pay that is below the market rate. There is a bonus but this doesn't make up for this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay to attract talent
