    Not what it appears to be.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA few stand outs among the group, but for the most part not a very hard working team.

    ConsVery political. Lots of favoritism. They hire far too many people than necessary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet to know the staff and workers, not just upper management. You will learn a lot more from them. Make your own opinions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    My experience there was quite stressful due to poor processes established there

    Consulting (Former Employee)
    West Chester, PA

    ProsIf you like monotonous not involving critical thinking work

    ConsIf you want versatility, growth, development and evaluation of your talent - don't ever go there, they do not care about all that there

    Great company to get your career started

    Coordinator (Current Employee)
    West Chester, PA

    Pros- Flexible hours.
    - Fantastic benefits (the benefits used to be better)
    - Friendly Atmosphere
    - Open door policy

    Cons- Regulations vary extremely depending in the department you work
    - Some department supervisors are extremely unqualified
    - The company as a whole does not encourage professional growth within the company. For example, if a QVC employee is promoted they will get paid substantially less than an "outside" hire.
    - Decline in employee benefits, pay, and overall moral.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am not a fan of Micromanaging, however in this case the supervisors and middle management really need to be audited carefully.

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