    Pros

    Part time positions were rewarded well and the incentives were managable.

    Cons

    People were replaced by machinery and human production was unfairly compared to equipment. Employees lost feeling of value and connectivity. Sadly the work was sent out the area for cheaper wages and less people.

  3. Extensive training program to develop employees abilities.

    Pros

    Seemingly endless overtime during their busy season. Great company to work for.

    Cons

    They took on far too many people compared to the amount of positions they had to offer. They start with part time work only.

    Advice to Management

    Keep more people who are willing to work full-time.

    Pros

    Benefits are wonderful...time off, medical, 401k, employee discount, wellness program and other.

    Cons

    The pace is relentless and generates a lot of stress. I work in an expense function so as the co platforms grow, our dept is not growing. We're expected to provide the same level of coverage of projects but projects are increasing and complex.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just look externally for candidates.Give internal folks a chance to bring their talents from roles and learn new roles in another internal position.

    Pros

    QVC has excellent benefits. Also, there are tons of opportunities for training for advancement purposes. There are so many areas to be employed in, if you are interested in exploring, all it takes is asking the question and most managers would be thrilled to arrange a Walk A Mile. There is also extensive talent recognition with quarterly awards.

    Cons

    Though one of QVC's talking points is work-life balance, that's kind of hard when you are dealing with a live show, 24/7. Also, many of the higher-ups have now been there many years and are almost ready/able to retire early since they got in on the bottom floor. It shows. They are really just biding their time, trying to drink the kook-aid and not rustle any feathers and ruin the good thing they have going. It' disappointing, because these people use to be very creative and open to ideas. Now, they are complacent and just go with the flow.

    Advice to Management

    Remember where you came from! There are lots of employees in the ranks who have great ideas, but they aren't being listened to because everyone is so scared of having an original idea that would put them in the spotlight.

    Pros

    This Company has really great benefits. You can get good coverage for everything from dental to eye exams. You also have a good variety in the types of coverage you can pick. The employees are all either happy people or keep to themselves which is great.

    Cons

    The raises aren't great so your only way to make more money is to go for a different position. It is a bit difficult to get promoted at times. Some jobs remain posted even after the point of consideration.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to work on making it possible to actually be able to earn a decent raise by working hard at your current position.

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice people, cool possibilities.

    Cons

    Slow, outdated, too many layers with upper management in meetings all the time - and mostly coordinators, and junior employees executing. Air-tight silos prevent the cross-functional collaboration necessary to innovate.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to really innovate - for real. Hire a few strong key leaders from the outside.
