    Current Employee - Store Manager in London, England (UK)

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great atmosphere as well as great people. Good working environment, OK staff discounts. Working in London makes it quite a social hub too.

    Cons

    Some bad management at times, not enough staff discount, can't really say much more, there's no more negatives that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff more. Communication within the group should be a hell of a lot more transport, we should also have more head office meetings.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Working with such a fun & exciting product, you would think makes an exciting environment to work right? Well, no. Not when its His masters voice. Only HMV could turn the stocking of CD's, DVD's & Games into such a laborious mire of tedium.

    Cons

    The demands placed on you will burn you out. HMV has a corporate environment that frankly makes the third reich seem relaxed. Recent years have not been kind, with most savvy employees heading toward the exit door. All that are left are a bunch of clueless, overpromoted, beaurocratic, soulless individuals more interested in their own careers than the company. An interest in music, film & games is paid occasional lip service, but to be honest, it feels hollow & contrivied. Besides, you'll spend most of your day blindly ticking boxes anyway.
