    I have been working at ASDA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great herritage and culture continues
    Passion for developing people and internal promotion.
    If you show passion and energy and deliver you will be noticed and rewarded
    The DNA of the selling culture has returned.

    Cons

    Focus on costs ultimately means the customer suffers standards and service. The majority of colleagues want to maintain a high standard so put themselves under pressure to deliver this

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in colleague wages. Reduce section leader headcount to pay for it.
