I worked at Dixons Retail full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Open door hiring policy. Multicultural mix of staff and management.

Cons

all load is shifted downwards, even when it is quite easily manageable at middle level, with minimum resource information.

Advice to Management

Must get dynamic and up to date being a tech. company in soft measure and procedures. Must keep stable outlook and presence on premises to gain customer confidence. There are other ways to make net margin without pressurized selling of insurance.

    Pros

    Great supplier base with exciting technologies in some categories
    Nice people in pockets

    Cons

    Low pay
    Unclear pathway for progression
    Unprofessional buying practices
    Low morale
    No social element - rarely a staff party
    Drab working environment and uninspiring location
    Very bureaucratic

    Advice to Management

    Change your location, reward talent not sycophancy and look to great employers in your sector like John lewis and sainsburys as an example - otherwise you will continue to struggle to attract or keep the type of intelligent people who will keep your organisation afloat.

    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.
