Does next have a pension plan?

Pros

Next are waking up to the market and improving their already great perks: 25% staff discount on Next branded items, share save scheme, bonus and pension and soon, depending on tech level, BUPA and share options!

Cons

Base salary below industry average; you'll get paid more elsewhere but won't get a lot of the perks you do at Next.

Advice to Management

Make the base salary more competitive: the bonus isn't guaranteed and has been low for quite a few years and has been zero for one and Share options rely on share price, they don't always give returns after 3 years. Need more opportunities for people to gain project management skills/people management skills; it's quite a leap from lead developer to development project management causing many leads to leave.
