    a little too tied to Tesco, some Tesco staff brought in who are less supportive of the dh culture, some expensive centralisation which hasn't worked that well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest in the markets more

    Pros

    good work-life balance, nice environment, friendly people
    data expertise

    Cons

    The company is nice, but all that matters is who your line manager is. If you can't align with your manager in terms of ways of working, your development goal, then you won't enjoy as much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers need to be open minded and stop under estimating employees, especially for junior levels.
    Gain credibility by the actually contributing to the team work.

    I worked at dunnhumby full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people are amazing lots of talented and charismatic colleagues.
    Very friendly reception and the hierarchy is very flat
    Training opportunities are great and the company is very accommodating regarding family life

    Cons

    The company used to have the feel of a small company but has now become large and the dis-economies of scale are starting to creep in.
    There has historically been a big layer of middle management making career progression slower

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more risks in the marketplace and learn to be quicker to react to competitors

    I have been working at dunnhumby full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    good work life balance. good office culture. time off policies is good. great people to work with.

    Cons

    You will feel saturation after working for six months. not much horizontal growth. only data mining work and no statistical analysis. vertical growth from lead analysis is near to impossible as there is top level saturation. No opportunity for onsite roles as most market roles are shifted to India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to worry about the excessive saturation in work type and growth of G3 in India office. India office is getting reduced to a pure back office where people are not treated at par with market analysts.

    I worked at dunnhumby as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Culture and friendly atmosphere. Employees are made to feel valued - for example permanent employees get choice of laptops and there are lots of social activities. Amazing working environment at Head Office, great offices and very flexible dress policy. Everyone including senior management very open and approachable.

    Cons

    Rather repetitive duties, high volumes of work made it impossible to gain exposure/training in other areas specific to my role.
