    I have been working at Sports Direct full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good standard bonus scheme - but it can be taken away for silly errors and it happens frequently Paid worked days off

    Cons

    Bad basics pay Working hours are 55pw minimum, closely monitored, publically discussed and frowned upon if not higher (despite contract being 45pw). No direction from senior management (all quite clueless and inexperienced in managing large business) No decision making power - all decided by 1 person (for the entire business) No recognition programme Bonus share scheme is bogus - to keep people in bad workplace, only qualifies after 3 years of service and must wait 2 years for payout. No respect, swearing is common and accepted on high management level

    Advice to Management

    None - they are very intelligent people but prefer squeezing everything out of people for sporadic reward
