    I worked at Tesco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great experience & opportunities given. If you are uncertain of the direction you want your career to take there is a massive opportunity to move upwards and sideways. These opportunities must be taken/ spotted by you, they are not handed out to those who don't work for it.

    Cons

    Very poor training given and very little ability to develop unless you are committed to ensuring your career is on track. You have to really be able to maneuver in a corporate environment and understand how it works to progress.

    Advice to Management

    Give better training and developmemt opportunities. Unfair to rely on competition and the hope that the cream will rise to the top alone. Give your colleagues the opportunity to advance and show their complete and utter potential.

    I worked at Tesco part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great team, closely interacting with one another to get projects done.
    business casual, hours are 8-4 with paid lunch but occasionally you will need to stay late. The Brittmore location- if you are in the warehouses, all corporate employees have their own office with self-controlled AC. You will always learn something new at Tesco, so be ready to learn.

    Cons

    Brittmore location- means you are in offices inside different warehouses, where the technical workers are training or working on equipment. The noise level can get loud and force you to close your office door. When working with teams it is great to have your doors open, to facilitate interaction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    lack of autonomy; lots of upheaval; lots of promotional levels; poor bonuses; fear based culture

    Advice to Management

    making us pay for hot water for tea was indicative of the low awareness for how management decisions impacted culture negatively
