    I worked at Tesco Corporation part-time

    Pros

    During my time at Tesco I enjoyed my coworker's presence. The atmosphere is extremely friendly and if you need help anyone in any department is wiling to help you out.

    Cons

    Sometimes communication is a bit fuzzy between departments and it takes awhile to get some things done unless a lot of upper management gets on people to do something.

    Advice to Management

    Work on strengthening communication and emphasizing main goals

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Flexibility and pay are very good for most people in the Corporate office.

    Cons

    Vacation is discouraged and there is a serious lack of leadership and accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Hold managers accountable and show them how to hold their subordinates accountable. There is no such thing as "too much" communication.

    I worked at Tesco Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for development and learning. Upper management makes themselves accessible and approachable. Travel (local/international) lets you meet coworkers away from your base location. Overall I enjoyed my time at Tesco very much.

    Cons

    Make sure you document all your emails because you might get thrown under the bus a time or two. You will need the proof. Likewise, make sure you are very clear what you and your team will be held responsible for. The lack of communication causes conflict across departments and the blame game begins.

    Advice to Management

    Hire (and continue to hire) HR personnel that is passionate about bettering the company, enjoys their jobs and cares about employees.
