    I have been working at Lyst full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ive been working at Lyst for 4 years and consider myself incredibly lucky to have done so.

    Lyst have a great culture of internal promotion. Looking at the senior management team (including c-suite) it is amazing how many have been promoted into those positions. Lyst look for the potential in employees and will recognise it when they find it.

    Lyst is quick to adapt to what's in front of it. I know some people have struggled with this as there are frequent changes in direction, but when you are fighting to grow as quickly as possible this is part of the process. What is does mean is that as soon as an opportunity presents itself, Lyst is face to react and has often been a first adopter.

    Cons

    City centre location isn't for everyone and is a difference experience to locations such as Shoreditch.
