A strong brand that does not fully deliver on its promises

Pros

In general you work with very hard-working and passionate people, with a social conscience.
There are opportunities to develop a career and move around for the right people.
The company works hard (although not always effectively) to bring its values to life and is still doing some great work in the ethical business space.

Cons

Most people come to The Body Shop expecting it to be a certain way because of the brand. It is not like that. I repeat. It is not like that.
At times a stifling hireachy makes it difficult to move forwards on projects and initiatives.
Ongoing integration isses with the L'Oreal Group make it a culturally challenging place to work at times
There is a lot of busyness going on but not always much business. it seems a difficult place to give feedback, make improvements and offer suggestions. People can some times be quite defensive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Control less and trust more, release the grip on your talented employees - this will support an atmosphere where creativity can once again thrive.

    Pros

    The company does a lot of great things for charity.

    Cons

    Only hires part time except for management now making it hard to find loyal staff. Does not allow tattoos or piercings or any other form of individuality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the structure for hiring full time/ part time staff to what it used to be so managers have a chance to have staff that care about their jobs.
