    Pros

    The craic? Honestly, it's the people that make it worthwhile. Also, there is no commission (unusual for sales), but there are incentives and the opportunity to earn vouchers (high street, asda, etc) which can go a long way to suppliment the average wage.

    Cons

    The constant directionless change, and dealing with area and regional managers who have been out of the 'front lines' for so long that they don't actually know what goes on in a store any more, but expect people to be able to maintain the 'same levels as they did' (though presumably without the high levels of fraudulent sales)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a week working in a Cat 3 store in place of the current manager, THEN preach about how to run our day.

    Pros

    Some very talented technical professionals to work with. Lots of different projects to work on and the technology available is leading edge.

    Cons

    Lack of any standards on the technical and human side. No methodology to follow so everyone is just trying hard without knowing what to do to improve. No improvement plan to learn from mistakes or accountability. A very hostile environment where everyone is scared to reach beyond the very minimum at the risk of being chastised. Those in charge fill their needs by avoiding issues or denigrating those below them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone in a position of management is scared of being discovered that they don't know what they are doing. Stop looking over your shoulder and hire the most competent people you can and give them tools to succeed.
