Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Tesco full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits and some of the best people

Cons

Values and culture
Lots of promises around progression but hard to get on in reality, with internal moves systematically blocked

Advice to Management

Don't just ask customers and employees what they think of tesco, really listen to it and then actually do something about it with intent to change.

    Good benefits great staff family atmosphere on nights very flexible around outside activities some managers take an interest in you and not just using you to get a promotion that been said see comments below

    Cons

    Can be a bit stressful at times lack of opportunities mangers have there own agenda which can cause problems some seem all to willing to cause problems just because they can't get there own ways

    Advice to Management

    Look at some of your mangers as they are not fit for the job

    I worked at Tesco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly people, have onsite canteens, loads of cool benefits, great offices, work/life balance.
    Main pro is the people who worked there (at least when i was there).

    Cons

    The pyramid structure at Tesco means you are in levels one or two mostly, the salary band is very vast, but was obvious that not all promotions where work based, rather kissing up to your boss... always a no-no.
    They also have a very disturbing graduate scheme in which they tend to only recruit posh folk and attractive girls... the latter not so much an issue for me, but definitely noticeable its not about skill but who you know.
    So main issues are mates in senior positions giving their mates better rates...

    Advice to Management

    The promotional politics need addressing, and graduate scheme needs a review.
