I have been working at Dixons Retail full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Heritage of the brand
Some great senior people
Rapidly changing industry
Household name
Technology sector is cutting edge

Cons

Public perception is that Dixons still make 40% margin on high tech, so the brand isn't loved.
Everything is about operations or product pricing. Limited opportunity to build rapport with suppliers and/or an engaging customer experience.

Advice to Management

Keep going with the transformation. Work on brand image and ensuring there are good career opportunities for the workforce.
