    I have been working at QVC UK full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Very supportive of your personal development however; you need to own and push your personal development goals - don't expect to have everything served to you. - Fantastic team members most with long tenures. - Non hierarchical org structure. - Global company structure provides great development opportunities

    Cons

    - Technology without a doubt.

    Advice to Management

    - Data is key. We are swamped by data but lacking in the tools to fully exploit it. - Invest in Digital. It is the future.

    Cons

    Management inability and reluctance to deal with bad apples in the business Promote feedback within teams- which actually creates a tell tail and back stabbing environment

    I have been working at QVC UK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some lovely team members, decent discount (if no P&P!), lovely location. Nice overall culture, likely stemming from the American-ness of it all. Also the CEO is very approachable, very kind.

    Cons

    Favouritism, little chance for personal development, P&P.

    Advice to Management

    More for senior management: although they mean well, some middle management really needs training on how to deal with individuals. As managers it's their role to adapt, not their employees.

    I worked at QVC UK full-time

    Pros

    -Great culture overall. People are friendly. -Exciting to see TV behind the scenes mixed with a sales/retail business. -CEO regularly seen about the business like everyone else. -Nice location and offices.

    Cons

    -Managers promoted as a next step in career without any guidance or management skills. -Not a good environment for someone with a health condition - seems to be no understanding of the Equality Act and there is a serious lack of support/awareness. Very disappointing (and shocking) for such a big, global company. -'Every man for himself' culture in some teams. This is very unpleasant to work in. -Poor benefits compared...

    Advice to Management

    'Management' training is essential - especially to those at senior/'Head of' level. A proper Occupational Health procedure needs to be implemented to support both managers and employees - and, most importantly, to help ensure legal responsibilities to employees are being met. Some very inappropriate and uneducated comments were made by my manager during my time at QVC - most surprising because of his very senior position.

    Pros

    You can get some great experience here in your chosen field. Employers are impressed with having QVC on your resume.

    Cons

    It has the potential to be a fantastic place to work. The training in place at QVC can only be adopted at QVC, you cannot realistically apply these skills to any other role. Inexperienced and toxic management in place. Bullying is commonplace here - management will want nothing to do with it. Large staff turnover. People are hired and fired constantly, you will be made to feel completely disposable. You want a promotion?...

    Advice to Management

    Employ managers who are experienced. Some managers are extremely vocal, but I rarely see them actually doing any work.

    Pros

    Friendly, supportive and inclusive environment Great work life balance, flexible hours and working from home An environment where you are not micro managed and you are trusted to do your role. Your views and ideas are listened to

    Cons

    The staff shop discounts can be rather dangerous! The holiday entitlement isn't the highest in the market, but you can buy days if required!

    I worked at QVC UK full-time

    Pros

    Great dynamic company, in a rapidly changing environment. If you like a challenge, it will provide you with that on many levels.

    Cons

    Global business, so less autonomy than if just a local, so decisions are slow and heavily influenced by parent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovating.
