    I worked at QVC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, every day is different, it's never boring. Always lots of events going on: celebrity meet and greets, sample sales, new product launches. There is always something going on. There is a lot of room for growth here bad opportunities to move around. Employees are encouraged to move around within the company and learn about new businesses. I felt like I was making a direct impact towards the goals of the company.

    Cons

    Can be really stressful, Merchandising requires a lot of extra hours depending on who you work for. Sometimes it's easy to get burned out. Work life balance can be a real challenge. Planning does a better job with work life balance initiatives than Merchandising does.

    I have been working at QVC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Best reasons to work here include:
    1. Supportive leadership: Managers recognize your work and effort, allow your own creativity and work autonomy. They also strongly support your career development.
    2. Supportive colleagues: Coworkers are more than willing to support each other. There is no sense of a cut-throat competitive environment.
    3. Transparent environment: QVC has a healthy work environment in which employees have the freedom to voice their opinions and challenges they face at work.

    Cons

    In some circumstances, new employees do not have access to full training because of the urgency to keep up with the team's workload.

    I have been working at QVC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Employee discounts and pretty building

    Cons

    The best thing most employees will say about this company are the discounts. That in itself is disturbing. Management at QVC spends a majority of it's time self promoting. If you are talented, confident, and assertive you will quickly be labeled cocky or too aggressive in this organization and your efforts will be sabotaged. Upper management has found a clever way to self promote, it's called "reorganization". This is a chronic occurrence that always produces promotions out of the managers that initiate it. The hard working professionals and SMEs are never promoted. It's mind boggling to witness. It's also common to have managers in areas they know nothing about. I don't understand how the company is financially successful based upon it's internal business practices.

    If you chose to work at this company take heed to the reviews. Particularly those of the Studio Park and Founders Park locations. Save yourself much aggravation and frustration of looking for a new job a year later. This is not am empowering environment for an up and coming talent. They dishonestly claim to appreciate your abilities while sabotaging your growth with resentful labeling. The environment is like one big high school looking to haze the new kid.

    The worker bees that have been with the company for a while are scared to speak up about the atrocities that upper management poses on them and others. I've seen and heard racial comments, watched people be denied the opportunity to interview for promotions, people have their direct reports and authority stripped because another manager desired that opportunity, and employees not allowed to speak or participate in meetings. The HR team is nothing more than a prop that is completely out of touch offering no support or solutions to employees.

    I can't stress enough to do your research before working here. Those that claim to love working for the company are likely in the click.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give it an overhaul. The culture here is a fools paradise.

    QVC is a dynamic place to work and very interesting people work there.

    Cons

    Working for Larry Hayes. Some would say he has too many balls in the air. Some would say he has none.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What happens when a manager consistently looses talented people? In a well run company, something.
