Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at next full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

A supportive team, you can always get help when you need it. People are valued and supported in their career progression. Always lots to do, loads of challenges. Flexible working, forward... thinking leadership team.

Cons

Priorities can change quickly meaning you can be working on one project one day then on something completely different the next. Can be a pro and a con as does mean lots of variety.
