    I worked at Fenwick full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lovely people to work with.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership. Big restructure created lots of redundancies and now they do not seem to know what they are doing. No room for progression.

    Advice to Management

    Support the teams better, lots of people have been loyal to the brand and you have given them nothing in return. Morale is the lowest it’s ever been
