I worked at Dixons Retail full-time

Pros

Great supplier base with exciting technologies in some categories
Nice people in pockets

Cons

Low pay
Unclear pathway for progression
Unprofessional buying practices
Low morale
No social element - rarely a staff party
Drab working environment and uninspiring location
Very bureaucratic

Advice to Management

Change your location, reward talent not sycophancy and look to great employers in your sector like John lewis and sainsburys as an example - otherwise you will continue to struggle to attract or keep the type of intelligent people who will keep your organisation afloat.

    Pros

    good benefits, big company, well known company, fast paced, easy access to m1 and m25 and a1m. local to london

    Cons

    limited progression opportunities, difficult culture, just a number not a name. hours are exhaustive and often eat into weekends and evenings

    Advice to Management

    train the managment, support the staff, do more staff/line manager reviews, as there are some really good managers and also some managers that really should not be incharge of anyone, let alone a team
