    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know what you are managing. I was a web designer on placement and now working part time as a junior web designer. I'm not allowed on the same rate as the other one, my bosses are paid even more - all sounds normal. But it is me who manages our teams work load, me who trains the 'senior' designer. I mange the printing side of things as well and if there are any problems it comes back on me and my head. - Plus the head of department doesn't have a clue about the department they are managing.

    I worked at Littlewoods full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    NONE WHATSOEVER AFTER THE MOORES SOLD IT! The Moores were a family company going back to 1923 when they founded Littlewoods pools, then later mail order.

    Cons

    The ruthless Barclay Bros themselves are literally con men! They closed down all the stores up and down this country, then departments one by one, then even the call centres themselves!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Without all the staff beneath you, you wouldn't have a job, so stop being pig headed & obnoxious!
