I worked at Tesco

Pros

Depending on your relationships with your colleagues Tesco is a great place to work. The benefits are great and the pension is one of the best i've seen.

Cons

If your management are not of a good standard and don't stick to company policy it can be a bit of nightmare.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Teams need supporting and coaching and not everyone learns at the same speed. Excellent coaching will produce excellent staff and happy well bonded team. Making people feel small and stupid infront of customers does not produce a happy motivated team and reflects badly on the business.

    I worked at Tesco

    Pros

    Great people
    Global opportunities
    Speed to react to market

    Cons

    Aggressive and directive management culture
    Favors action and current day operations over longer-term needs
    Inconsistent management
    IT and process issues
    Head office location - not central or easy to get to

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in longer-term solutions, not just this year's bottom line.
    Look more closely at the way you incentivise, promote talent and build your culture.

    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Welwyn Garden City, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Welwyn Garden City, England (UK)

    I worked at Tesco

    Pros

    Reasonable salary for industry
    Opportunity to get on if you're willing to play the game and give up your evenings in the week...
    Nice people in the majority

    Cons

    Work-life balance not encouraged.
    Offices and systems are not fit for purpose.
    People in management positions are not necessarily the right people to be managing others and this is not recognised.
    Quite a lot of favouritism going on, no chance of being recognised unless you work late every night and never challenge anything, no matter how good you are at your job.
    Too much expected of people on lower grades (not including myself here), but certain managers didn't seem to recognise that their admin teams weren't on the same pay scale as them and so shouldn't be subjected to the same pressures and expectation to do long hours.
    Very much a feeling that employees are expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in the people you have as people managers - make sure they are suited to this role and will support their teams. Don't gloss over the issues or you will continue to lose good people!
