Pros

Working with fun and clever colleagues, good work/ life balance, flexible working, good social life.

Cons

Benefits are quite basic and the salary is definitely below industry standard. There are no clear career development opportunities. Not enough recognition given to colleagues who have performed well. Some senior management don't appear to do very much, all talk and no action. Office is in an awkward location by Battersea Bridge.

Advice to Management

Offer more interesting work, better salary & perks and career development opportunities otherwise you might see many resignations in 2020.

Why do A.S. Watson Group employees quit?

Pros

Discount is 10% on branded and 30% on own brand with Superdrug.

Cons

Very hard work, can be very long hours and asked to work long hours with only a moments notice. Left feeling like just a dispensiple number. However if you fall out with management expect to get minimum hours and bad mouthed behind your back.

Advice to Management

Don't try to turn a team that have worked together for years, against each other, treat everyone as idots. One rule for all not just the favourites.

Left feeling like just a dispensiple number.
