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

Pros

Some nice people, and young and fun to be with workforce. Dixons can serve as a springboard to work at on the manufacturing side, which pays a lot more.

Cons

Slave wages - the staff turnover is incredible. Nobody seems very happy at all both in their role and with the culture of the company as a whole. Absolutely miles behind the competition in terms of planning and strategising in middle management. For too much heirarchy, Senior management have no idea on the amount of time it takes to get the most simple things done due to excessive beurocracy.

Advice to Management

Fancy top level cosmetic changes are not the answer to all of your prayers. Look at systems and processes to make progress happen.
