    I have been working at Boots full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay, friendly colleagues, prizes and incentives for doing good work (e.g. prizes for most ad card sign ups), overall really enjoy working for the company.

    Cons

    The management can be a bit hit and miss, often short staffed so extra pressure loaded on to others to pick up the slack. At my particular branch there are often mistakes on the rotas which leads to problems. Seems difficult to express interest in training or management opportunities/career progression
