    Pros

    Depending on your relationships with your colleagues Tesco is a great place to work. The benefits are great and the pension is one of the best i've seen.

    Cons

    If your management are not of a good standard and don't stick to company policy it can be a bit of nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    Teams need supporting and coaching and not everyone learns at the same speed. Excellent coaching will produce excellent staff and happy well bonded team. Making people feel small and stupid infront of customers does not produce a happy motivated team and reflects badly on the business.

    Invest in longer-term solutions, not just this year's bottom line.
    Look more closely at the way you incentivise, promote talent and build your culture.
