    I worked at Argos full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic IT systems means ease and accuracy of report data available.
    Good at sharing what's happening throughout the business and downloading from Senior Management.
    Highly positive and friendly culture.
    Fair to their staff and suppliers. Will always aim to promote from within before externally.
    Good opportunities to move between departments and within the HRG group to/from Homebase.
    Excellent working environment - beautiful, light, modern offices with great restaurant.

    Cons

    Often expect too much from their staff - hours can be very long (including weekends at certain periods). In Merchandise, all team members have to be in work for 7am to prepare reports for Monday's Trading Meeting.
    Their current lacklustre trading performance is of concern although i feel confident they have the right leadership and strategy in place to turn it around.
    Pension scheme not now offered to new starters

    Lot of restructurings and old legacy systems in some parts of the business create complex problems. Lack of people development at lower levels.
