    I have been working at QVC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good, Credit union on site. QVC Difference experience. Keeps up with the latest technologies. Great Development team (IT). Job stability

    Cons

    No room for growth. Came here with the expectations that QVC is big on career growth and promoting within - NOT TRUE! You don't get promoted unless you are favored - it doesn't matter how hard you work it goes unnoticed because you are not a fav. Only the favs get perks like working from home and promotions. A lot of favoritism.
    Pay is low compared to most IT Positions at other companies. No structure in IT. No appreciation to their teams and no trust. Managers don't know how to manage some do not even have IT backgrounds! I felt misled when I took this position. They rather invest in hiring contractors than to promote within and give the money to its current employees.
    Not recognition to employees for the hard work and hours put in. They expect you to do the next level's work or job but won't give you the promotion/title or the pay for the work your doing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers & supervisors should have to take the QVC difference at least once a year. Grow the company within rather than thinking hiring an outsider or an contractor is the solution. Make your employees feel valued and appreciated. STOP FORCE RANKING! Hire managers and supervisors that care about their teams. Promote from within! Pay attention to the Q perspectives and show us change!

    Pros

    The immediate people you interact with day to day are the best. The discount and the health benefits are great. Your going to need the health benefits once QVC get's done burning you out and discarding you.

    Cons

    Supervisors only care about making their bonus' and hitting their goals. They don't care about their people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All employees should get stock in the company not just certain levels. We all work extremely hard to make billions of dollars for the stockholders.

    Pros

    Salary. Benefits used to be great but, now are just OK.

    Cons

    Unrealistic senior management. No bad news is allowed to be given, even if rtue. It all has to be sugar coated so nothing gets done about problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat empolyees with years of business knowledge respectfully. Stop pushing them out of the company.

    I have been working at QVC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In terms of work/life balance, QVC is a great place to work. All 4 bosses I've had thus far are always accomodating in terms of time of off, working from home, etc. The culture is great and the people are for the most part easy to work with.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best, but I believe the work/life balance makes up for that. If you're looking for a place where you can work hard and really get ahead, this is probably not it. There's a great amount of red tape and resistance to change which is sometimes hard to deal with.

    I worked at QVC

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Company store and many benefits.

    Cons

    Was told very little, all senior advisors were of little to no help. Everyone I talked to was nice to my face but did very little to help me. Did not tell me my employment was terminated, even though they claim to

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Call your employees! Actually do your job.

    Pros

    You'll meet some very knowledgeable people.

    Cons

    Passive aggressive managers, poor pay, understaffed because managers get a bonus based on being under budget, Absolute loyalty is expected but not returned. Many bosses are moved into departments of which they know nothing. Promotions are more about sociability rather than competence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to go back to the raise schedule before the recession. There is no incentive to shoot for an outstanding on your review when the best possible raise you can get is 3.5%. Newsflash, inflation is higher than that! Quit promoting idiots just because you like hanging out with them.
