    I have been working at Kingfisher full-time

    Pros

    The digital hub is a creative and exciting place to work. Full of supportive and relaxed people, both at my level and above. The culture has a start up feel, and design is taken seriously.

    Cons

    This contrasts the rest of the business, there is an archaic feel to many of the more traditional departments which makes collaboration slow and difficult.
    Growing at such a fast pace has left the digital hub with little career progression structure in place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on working to build structure for KF employees in the digital hub. Disrupt the archaic views of the rest of the business.
