    I worked at The Watches of Switzerland Group full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    The company is well known

    Cons

    The company use any excuse to avoid paying full commission, they love the word penalise. Pay increases are an insult (e.g. £200 annually) Charge staff for wear and tear of straps of display stock Don't offer any premium pay on Christmas or New Years Day Targets are unrealistic Not rewarding Management are not supportive enough

    Advice to Management

    Management need to be more supportive and work with staff to back them up when issues arise. Reward hard working staff
