    I worked at Shop Direct as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice buildings, gym, coffee shops, wellbeing of its staff and the general vibe of the company sum up my experience at Shop Direct.

    Cons

    Location isn't great, if you're a contractor you cannot park on-site, they are slow to renew/extend contracts and assume you will hang on until the last moment. It's also very clichy and if you're face doesn't fit you'll be pushed out from what I've seen.

    Clearly some long term employees do not like contract staff and have made this known on several occasions, I've also witness bullying by senior management unfortunately to permanent, contract staff and staff within their outsource partners.

    Technology is old (other than the eCommerce side of the business), old computers out of date software and systems it's not as shiny and new as they portray.

    Advice to Management

    Take heed of your shout reviews and to thrive you need to remove the old guard that tainted my experience.

    I have been working at Shop Direct full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Allows me the freedom to be creative, express myself, and add value on a daily basis. They are moving to a more agile way of working and this brings opportunities and openings. The values are very strong in Shop Direct and not just on a wall for show, we really do live and breathe them

    Cons

    Some old ways of working, but at least they recognise this and are trying to move to new ways of working

    Advice to Management

    become coaches rather than managers
