    I have been working at Boots full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good colleagues
    Work is enjoyable
    Targets are normally achievable

    Cons

    Benefits have been cut
    HQ don't actually care about staff - just a number
    Budgets are tight, so not enough staff

    Advice to Management

    Management inshore are fine, but higher up, you need to sort yourselves out. You do not care about staff and especially staff morale. We should be treated fairly.

    Pros

    Fantastic opportunities for development as well as one of the greatest intranets for accessing information about company processes and systems.

    Cons

    Some of the changes that were meant go improve things, made life more difficult because they weren't implemented correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Involve staff from every level in projects and new process development.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, which are awesome to make friends with. A great work environment, a pleasant place to work and good facilities for breaks.

    Cons

    Some customers can be rude but rarely. I was based in Boots through agency so not being able to work full time was a con for me.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going as you are, you're doing a great job! Always on track and the store is always tidy. Your staff are happy and content, as was I on my visit.
