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

    Pros

    Great culture and fun and challenging place to work that looks after you, gives lots of opportunities to develop yourself, if you take them, and promotes from within. Loads of opportunities to get involved in voluntary or other initiatives out side of your normal day job.

    Rapidly expanding business so any team you join is likely to keep on growing giving you loads of potential to grow.

    Rapidly improving tech stack , that gives lots of you a chances to work on the latest technologies.

    Great parties, for summer and Xmas, and reduced hours on Fridays in the summer so you can leave at 3pm!

    Cons

    At the moment there is quite a bit of building works on the office to cater for the expanding workforce, so it maybe noisy at times.

    I worked at ASOS full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, one of the best I've received. Birthday day off, 40% discount from the store, 20% from the boutique. Generous bonus available. Fantastic and diverse canteen. Great work/life balance

    Cons

    Although there were many talented people working there, however there was a drinking culture; some were promoted because based on hanging out at the pub with their manager regularly.
    I was in the IT department, a large macho culture was present too.

    Advice to Management

    Do not let the great talent go! Remove the contractors, there were far too many.

    I worked at ASOS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great location and facilities, very laid back social environment with a heavy focus on achieving your own targets.

    Cons

    No real job security until you’ve reached the permanant position (after 3 months)

    Advice to Management

    More facilitation for Team Leaders to be able to not process suspicious orders. Fraud Team need to be made to do more.

    Pros

    ASOS is by far the most creative and empowering organisation I've worked for. The business is growing rapidly and there are plenty of career opportunities if one is prepared to invest their energy and commitment. Great people and fun environment.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work hard, not a negative, but important to be aware...We play hard too :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the great work and continue looking after the culture.
