I worked at Boots (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great company values
Customer focused
Regular pay days
Good discounts

Cons

Company values are constantly discussed - these values are not always delivered from the top of the organisation
Low pay compared to other similar roles with other companies - hard to gain worklife balance, it's the norm to work all hours to constantly deliver
It takes more than company discount to retain employees

Advice to Management

Consistency is a challenge for your focus - particularly performance rating within teams.
The new Boots approach has changed the way people feel about working for you.
People feel undervalued.

Other Employee Reviews for Boots

  1. "Good people but long hours - tough place to be a 'middle manager'"

    Pros

    Head office - lots of good people to work with and a good environment to work in. Decisions usually based on facts rather than hunch.

    Cons

    Lots of senior managers so decisions usually taken at a high level rather than delegated. Lots of work required to support proposals, then often re-worked when next senior stakeholder has a question. To succeed often means working long hours. Lots of meetings so work gets done early morning or in evenings.

    Advice to Management

    Let your teams get on with it!
