    Brilliant place to work with great leaders

    Pros

    Good culture- most people don't take themselves too seriously but at the same time are very passionate about what they do. The work is interesting and always changing

    Cons

    Occasionally they aren't any available opportunities internally when employees are ready to progress but from my experience management do all they can to retain people.

    Great pay, fun annual events.

    Pros

    The company is cool, innovative, risky, inspirational and forward thinking. The sales floor I work in has a wonderful team and it's great atmosphere to work in.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to progress up through the company, due to issues with headcount, a lack of movement and new job opportunities at senior level.

    Falls short in places

    Jan 4, 2021 - Manager in London, England
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Excellent company vision communicated well by upper management - Transparency from an exec level, the best I've ever seen - Cares about it's employees - Exciting place to work, good office facilities, great perks - Company is moving in the right direction and staying with the times - Young, female CEO paving the way

    Cons

    - Individuals within the business aren't aligned with the companies stance on innovation and change, holding up our ability to make progress - Being such a big company, departments will take some years before we work together properly - Despite the digital product department being the lead department for technological change, it's caught up in a lot of red tape and procedure that prevent it from really running at full steam - Mid-level managers are more protective of their own reputation than the wellbeing and development of their team - No opportunities to grow or progress within the business. Your job is your job.
