    Very Comfortable Atmosphere

    Applications Developer IV (Former Employee)
    West Chester, PA

    ProsHigh pay, able to wear jeans to work, discount on TSV, plenty of breaks, etc. Located in West Chester with ample free parking. Has onsite cafeteria. No real pressure to get things done.

    ConsCan be hard to get to campus due to infrequent public transportation. QVC is largely a cubicle farm and it's sometimes a challenge to relax and listen to music while working. Occasional long hours, but at $100K per year, it's well worth it! Too many project managers trying to run things.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider improving some of amenities such as the rest rooms and provide more private offices and rooms for team members to hang out and collaborate.

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

    Love/hate relationship

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPositive and friendly work environment, great-coworkers, laid back and relatively stress free. Good holiday pay.

    ConsChances are you will absolutely not be able to afford Chester County or anywhere near it with what you're making. Factor in commuting/car costs and you will not be reimbursed. If you are one of the many on-calls don't expect to ever be made full time or be given reliable hours. Factor in very long monotonous shifts with no windows. Factor in no advancement and very little communication about what is actually going on. A lot of changes constantly without being told anything at all. Factor in feeling under appreciated. Factor in everyone around you being equally as frustrated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease read cons.
    Employees need to be treated more like adults and less like children.
    Why does QVC not even give out free coffee to it's employees? Can corporate not afford it ? It's the little things.

    Searching for a way out

    Merchandising (Current Employee)

    ProsEntry level positions available, interesting products, QVC promotes from within.

    ConsYoung management is poorly trained to manage their subordinates. Most are very unprofessional and cannot lead a team. Pay is poor and training is minimal. You typically work 50+ hours a week without overtime compensation. Most departments are severely understaffed. Employee turn-over is extremely high.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter train mid-level management. Better compensate employees.

    Can't get out of their own way

    Executive (Former Employee)
    West Chester, PA

    Prossecurity, safe, no real risks are taken, has had a good run

    Consstagnant, resistent to change, demoralizing, 25 year old business model, 8 minute sells?

    Advice to Senior Managementend the "this is how we do it" culture. actually tell non-customers about you, advertise and grow an audience. Website hasn't changed in 10 years.
