I have been working at The Body Shop full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Benefits and long service awards are excellent. Training and development at a store level is also very good.

Cons

Some upper management expect too much. Communication can sometime leave a little to be desired. Lone trading becoming much more common.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be aware that your employees do have a life outside of work.

    Current Employee - Middle Operations Manager

    I have been working at The Body Shop full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Values driven. Genuinely involved in helping the less fortunate.

    Cons

    Top management doesn't understand the ground. Top heavy structure with over stretched bottom operations people. Poor processes without clear accountabilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop adding layers to the senior management and start investing in your people. Admit current processes are useless and move on.

    Pros

    - Awesome staff discount
    - Fun promotions
    - Day to day working atmosphere is great
    - Love the products
    - The company does stand for some really good core values

    Cons

    - Expected to work many hours/days of over time with no compensation or days off
    - No consideration for work/life balance of managers
    - Support from Head Office is very little and upper management has a lot of churn and disorganization
    - Over the top sales targets and daily pressure to meet unrealistic goals without having the payroll hours and time to train employees properly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want good people, treat them better and allow for time to train new employees properly.
