    Pros

    The company offers an immense amount of on the job training, which is in a lot of cases a baptism by fire. An employee who is easily adaptable to many unexpected and sometimes very complex issues will excel.

    Cons

    Company organization is forever changing. Growth is typically promoted from within and senior management rarely promotes or initiates employee training outside of "Tesco University" This leaves many upper management not formally trained for their positions which lacks the ability to apply newer or more efficient processes. Each and every organizational restructure would however initiate change to process which taxes the administration staff beyond what is achievable which generally leads towards a top heavy organization.

    Advice to Management

    Start with a business plan and develop from there. Investigate and utilize sustainable systems that allow employees to strengthen and build skills for the future without the threat of new system introductions. Promote employee development beyond what is available through internal training resources. Create champions not slaves. One of Tesco's cultural views is open discourse, Senior management needs to pass down company vision better and promote a strong positive direction which would lead to higher employee morale.
