I worked at The Rank Group full-time for less than a year
Pros – Great, friendly people. The employees make the company.
Cons – Management does not care about employees. Very secretive culture. Not much dialogue. Senior management makes decisions and filters down. Even though the company claims to follow certain values it does not show. There are differences between the digital and retail sides of the business. Senior management very inconsistent.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at The Rank Group as a contractor for less than a year
Pros – Strong Retail Presence. People are nice .
Cons – I was there as a external consultant for few months, worked with all levels of management - CEO to Junior level Assistants. People are just clueless broadly speaking , they are doing things without any clear direction or strategy . Most of the employees are poorly skilled for their roles and i suspect are low paid, they are good at complaining about things however no one is willing to take charge and fix issues. If someone tries to resolve business issues it makes permanent employees nervous as they are well aware once issues are fixed they will have to work and they are just not fit for purpose. Middle/ Senior level mgmt. People ask for things without being able to explain benefits of investment.
Advice to Senior Management – Hire high calibre experinced people from good companies and pay them well . adapt best practices from various industry sectors and upskill or remove non-performers - top to bottom . Enculcate business vision across all area's of buisness just not write it in annual reports for the city. Company needs a major buisness transformation just not quick fixes if it is to compete in tough market.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at The Rank Group full-time for more than a year
Pros – Free Private Healthcare
Cons – Management - Need to learn some respect and not talk down to staff
Advice to Senior Management – This is the worst company I have EVER worked for. I was employed as a Sales Manager and my life was hell. They are fine when you are hitting your sales targets but otherwise they are forceful and quite simply awful to work for. They harrass you constantly regardless of whether you are performing or not. Also be prepared to work all of the hours under the sun and get no thanks what so ever!
