      Fantastic place to learn, grow and contribute as an Engineer

      Pros

      * One of the best environments I have experienced for Engineers to learn from each other, contribute and lead/spearhead technical changes. * One day a month dedicated to self-improvement and learning. * Huge amount of support to get technical qualifications (e.g. - Azure developer certifications + exams) * Subsidised canteen, coffee shop, gym, and wellness and beauty treatments

      Cons

      * Management are often quite late in sharing organisational changes * For the work that LSEs do, they deserve a little more compensation

      Good company to have on your CV

      Pros

      Flexible on work location and hours. Historically, company successes were celebrated with staff in various ways (bonuses, afternoons off in the summer and social events). Lock down and remote working has obviously impacted this however. ASOS is very big on training and development so a great place to develop your career. The pace can be very fast at ASOS, but it's generally enjoyable if the pace doesn't bother you.

      Cons

      As the company has grown so to has the red tape. A lot of process that gets in the way progress. Salaries and pay scales are a closely guarded secret

      Great environment and tech forward

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great environment team-wise, at least in Tech. Leadership is open and reactive to suggestions and change.

      Cons

      Experimentation has become too structure and it's hard to fail fast and gather learnings quickly. Also the salary offerings for intracompany promotions are on the hardly competitive and probably hurts employee retention.

      Pros

      Good discount- used to be more rewards for staff but these have now disappeared.

      Cons

      Don’t care about the staff anymore, all about the profit. No idea how the CEO is still there!!!

      Pros

      Good perks at the time (sample sales, Friday drinks etc). Loved the brand at the time so it was great to work for them.

      Cons

      The team I worked in was gossipy and really negative. led by really immature senior management. You are allowed very little autonomy and responsibility.
