    Pros

    Good Health Benefits Some Nice Co-workers Depending on multiple factors - ability to corporate Climb

    Cons

    Nepotism, Favoritism Aimless Upper Management Expectations to work 8-hour days and complete 24-hour timelines for 3-4 people's worth of work Pay scales different for jobs that are equivalent - but no willingness to discuss it.

    Advice to Management

    I wasted over 7 years believing that QVC's culture was just corporate culture and that it was the "best of the worst" - thankfully it is not. Nepotism, favoritism, and poor upper management led me to work myself sick before leaving the company for a better position elsewhere. I suggest listing to your workers, build from within and stop creating a culture for directors with bonuses only. Your workers are keeping the place alive, not your suits.

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of opportunity for movement within company. Definitely a growing company.

    Cons

    Corporate can be a highly political environment. Bureaucracy drastically slows down processes and change. Very strong culture and values, expect to drink the kool-aid in order to be successful here.

    Pros

    Great training and work enviroment

    Cons

    Timed phone calls seem inconsiderate almost rude to customers how really require a little more assistance with their shopping choices. Many times customers need to fetch a form of payment and the representative is penalized for this.

    Advice to Management

    Customer service is taking time for the customer and servicing their shopping needs, this should not come with a stop watch.

    Pros

    Great facility,great cafeteria, sample sale

    Cons

    The office politics are endless. The off-air side is probably the least diverse place in the building. If you want a promotion in this place be white.

    Advice to Management

    Good ideas don't only come from white people.

    Pros

    The opportunities to learn technical skills and areas is unlimited. QVC offers fantastic opportunities for advancement and changing areas. I have some if the best employees in the business.

    Cons

    Average work week for an IT Manager is 50-60 hours per week. Plus we have to be available and checking email 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. It main job is to rein in the chaos coming down from senior leadership, so our people can get their work done.

    Advice to Management

    Managers lack the ability to reward employees other then out of the managers own pocket.

    Pros

    Reasonable hours and good compensation. I never felt that I was overworked. Also, I never felt under compensated.

    Cons

    There is a lot of involvement by HR and it sometimes feels like your hands are tied when it comes to accountability, hiring, and terminations. Any process involving HR seemed to move at a slow pace.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the culture. I made the mistake of trying to apply culture from a past life and it took a while to let it go and become acclimated with the QVC culture.
