Does Lidl offer massages?

Pros

There is free lunch once a month.

Cons

No work life balance. Directors and executives are known for screaming at employees and Employee Relations does not take any claim seriously. There is no formal training and policies change quickly without any notice or instruction but you are required to still do the job. It is VERY common to see someone crying at their desk because of stress. Managers do not give fair reviews. NOT a safe space for black people and people of color. They treat warehouse employees unfairly and make it so that there are little to no black employees in high positions even though they are qualified. Getting a promotion takes on average 4 years if you are in an entry level position. Admins are forced to do the job of higher roles with no pay bump. The CEO quit because there was no work life balance. They’ve been sued in other countries for inhumane work conditions.

Advice to Management

Make policies work for people and not the other way around. Allow the employees to say no & have boundaries.
