    I have been working at A.S. Watson Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay & benefits, career progression, good work/life balance promoted, inspirational people, diversity embraced, "work hard play hard" mentality.

    Cons

    Can be a little corporate, not necessarily a "cool" brand to work for (and often unknown in Europe).

    Advice to Management

    Increase brand awareness of ASW (not just their brands). Become more flexible for younger generation.

    I have been working at A.S. Watson Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team and environment in the London office, very open and honest culture. Senior managers/directors are very busy but approachable. Work-life balance is ok.

    Cons

    Very small teams means less space for growth, there's no place to step away from your desk to have lunch, flexible working could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Rearranging/relocating the office should be considered - it's difficult to focus being stuck at your desk all day, there isn't always time to go out for lunch.

    I have been working at A.S. Watson Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Huge global presence, if you work in a group function you get to interact with all the global business units. Retail is normally fast and ASW is no exception decisions get made rapidly and you can see your work implemented very quickly. Lots and lots of examples of people starting in junior roles and working their way to the top. Some great career opportunities.

    Cons

    Can be a cultural minefield but that's normal for any global organization. Due to the need to turn things around quickly some weeks will be very busy with some long hours required.

    Advice to Management

    Spend as much time as possible in the stores
