    I worked at Harrods full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is something magical about Harrods - everyone has good memories of the store growing up. The store is beautiful and it was always look good on your CV. Discount is very good. Michael Ward is totally ruthless always seemed like a nice guy around the store and HQ.

    Cons

    Some Directors that have been there a long time are bullying, dreadful people that treat their teams like children. No flexibility, long hours, humiliating tellings off in the middle of the office, zero support and pregnancies are deemed inconvenient.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better. Equal pay for both genders. Flexible hours.

    I worked at Harrods full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Don’t remember any, the only could be just name Harrods on CV as everyone thinks it’s “great” place

    Cons

    The worse place for work. I was part of IT back office. You are just a number not person, training zero , Managment awful and bullying, long hours and pay so bad for job you have done. Team work don’t exist everyone looking to push you down.

    Advice to Management

    Look for young manager and fresh ideas, people are not numbers and who care how long you have been there that is not mean you have to be manager ..
