Pros

The people! All levels of management are open to new ideas, it is a very flat structure.

Cons

Can be a little unfocused. I feel that people jump a little too quickly to what Charles says.
Long hours. 40 hour week is the contracted hours and often it is much longer.

Advice to Management

Look at your Operational capabilities. It is quite poor. We are always chasing the next good idea (essential of course), but always at the complete expense of how we are currently dealing with the issues we already have.

    I worked at Carphone Warehouse as a contractor

    Pros

    Fun, creative, great management and leadership, dynamic. They really care about their employees and customers, and they truly believe in great customer service.

    Cons

    It can be chaotic and things change very fast so you need to be prepared to change with it. And sometimes there are conflicting priorities but that's life, it's not enough of a downside not to work for this great organisation.


  2. "Good for part time work"

    I worked at Carphone Warehouse part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty good wage and decent training, the best part of being in my store was the camaraderie with my colleagues. Good experience working with the newest gadgets but this is limited.

    Cons

    Company is quite demanding of your time, sales targets were very unrealistic for my store, lots of upper management decisions made with little interaction with the people on the ground. There are lots of things asked from you for being low wage earners. Essentially the company expects a lot from their workers but treats them like potential criminals or children at times.
