    I worked at Burberry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay with good discount and sample sales for employees only. Excitement of a new creative director.

    Cons

    Poor and under qualified management teams creating a challenging and unproductive work environment. Junior employees were told to manage up to their managers if there was room for improvement. Overwhelming sexist attitude in the regional office and senior management. Zero opportunity for career development.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the opportunity for career growth. Programs to better equip managers who are inescapable of managing anything outside of their basic job responsibilities.

    Pros

    When Angela and CB were around and Asia was bringing money, everything went nice and bright. Great time to be there. Lots of innovation and positive feelings.

    Cons

    Last 3 years became toxic, with some dinosaur employees parasiting and doing nothing but politics, sales and products simply ridiculous. Unhealthy environment and it is still like this or even worse.

    Advice to Management

    Please all of you. Just fire yourselves and sell the company
