      Pros

      The people who work at QVC are incredibly talented and the company works hard to foster a positive working environment.

      Cons

      It is challenging to work your way up within the company due to low turnover in the management positions and hiring outside for senior leadership roles.

      Pros

      Decent work environment. It's AC'd. Small raises every few months

      Cons

      The people here are a bit toxic. Find the gems and still only talk to them in passing.

      Stable, Safe & Where Careers Go To Die

      Jun 9, 2020 - Design Development and Global Sourcing Team in West Chester, PA

      Pros

      -Full time employees are eligible for paid PTO, medical insurance, company discounts for all companies under QRG parent company -The company and management uphold a culture of kindness and respect among team members, this is not a toxic work environment like some fashion companies are. Most people are nice or at the least civil. Disrespect is addressed, it's not ignored or supported. -Company donates generously to outside charity and non-profit organizations -Weekly company wide meetings and regular quarterly town halls attempt to keep all employees in company informed and abreast with current business and updates -Employee engagement/wellness such as yoga, a gardening club, walking club, kickball team, choral group and other distractions from your low salary and lack of career growth. -Stable employer that's trying to innovate against stiff competition (Amazon) -Beautiful location

      Cons

      -Below competitive pay and low-ball offers during salary negotiation. -Minimal or non existent growth opportunities. -Understaffed teams and lack of staffing support from upper management. A common saying and practice: "upper management will let you drown before they agree to give you any support, they want you to prove that you need it" -Inefficient software systems and workflow processes. -Despite what HR will tell you the company does not attract top talent from the fashion industry (no one goes to Nowhere, PA to further their career). Plenty of people are coasting until retirement or just making the rounds within the limited Philadelphia companies. -Regular and major cost cutting measures such as eliminating entire teams and departments, scaling back benefits such as reducing vacation, retroacting rescinding benefits. -Despite vocal support of work/life balance, few practice this as it's simply impossible to keep up with workload (see previous points as to why); many people work evenings and/or weekends -Lack of diversity amongst employees -Huge company, you are literally a number -Beautiful BUT secluded location, long commute if you don't live in the area

      Nice place to work

      Pros

      The work environment is great, and pretty laid back. The company attracts a lot of good people to be around and work with. The facilities are nice and they are modernizing more each year. Within my group there's always been a nice ebb and flow of crunchy challenging work and a more eased relaxed pace. Not every development group's experience is the same but that's the general tone of the place.

      Cons

      Some of the tech platforms are older and not upgrading anytime soon. There's a mix of modern solutions and legacy platforms that aren't retired yet. As a large company where most actions can impact day to day sales there's a lot of caution towards trying new things or doing anything that could impact the live site. The company appreciates passion but ultimately at the developer level you won't have much pull to make impactful changes to processes or technologies.
