Truthfully there weren't too many cons

"Sales Associate"Apr 21, 2015

I worked at John Lewis & Partners

Pros

The care shown to employees, business model and over all working environment are great. You can really thrive with the company if you're able to deal with the hours and work hard.

Cons

The team around you really make or break your experience. Which is great if you have a good team and manager. If not it can be a little rough.
