    Great place to work for personal growth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFun culture lots of opportunities. Strong focus on individual and team development.

    ConsOrganisation struggles with understanding when there is a need to change. The past is not always the best indicator!

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook outside the organisation for good ideas as well as in the mirror.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I worked as a merchandiser over the summer, I enjoyed my time there and was treated well.

    Merchandiser (Former Employee)
    Auckland (New Zealand)

    ProsYou work until the job is done, not to set hours, so if there is less work you finish early but you don't mind staying later if things get busy.

    ConsLong hours, my job required working a number of days in a row which became tedious.

    Very strong people culture, very generous with training and respect of well being

    Claims Executive (Former Employee)

    One of the best places to work for

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Sydney (Australia)

    Pros- the culture!!
    - the people are awesome. everyone is generally willing to help out
    - structured development opportunities and training courses to develop your skills are abundant
    - relatively flat structure allows almost anybody in the organisation to contribute to its success
    - opportunities to move around within your function as well as across functions for the right people help develop breadth of experience and skills
    - strong emphasis on sociability aided by the in-house bars
    - great work life balance with the onsite gym and in-house personal trainer

    Cons- the culture! whilst it may sound counter intuitive because i've also said this is a pro, people need to understand that there is a very strong and distinct culture at lion. internally people sometimes even refer to it as a cult and this may be quite an experience for people if they've grown accustomed to different cultures at other companies. give it time though and you'll soon find yourself getting more comfortable and ultimately embracing it
    - the flat structure might mean several rotations on the same level. this in itself isn't a problem because there will always be new things to learn and skills to develop however it might be frustrating for someone who measures their career progression by the title in front of their name

    Advice to Senior Managementkeep up the good work. never lose sight of the fact that your employees are assets and ambassadors of your brands

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
