    I have been working at Shop Direct part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The variety of projects is what keeps things interesting and is one of the reasons that I have been at Shop Direct for so long. There is always opportunity to get involved in different projects, there is a huge assortment of challenges to get stuck into.
    The people is the other reason I enjoy working at Shop Direct so much. There is a real team sprint and everyone is willing to collaborate on projects and offer up their experience and advice. You always feel support is there when required.
    Our data asset is also one of our crown jewels at Shop Direct. We are so lucky to have such a realm of data available at our fingertips to analyse and model. We also have an array of tools to tackle the problem with including SQL, SAS, R and Python to name a few.
    There is great training material available at Shop Direct which really helps to develop your skills in lots of different areas.

    Cons

    Maternity Pay is currently way below the industry standard (but i believe this is being looked into)
