    I worked at Burberry (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Global scope with some challenging international arrangements
    Decent benefit selection
    Office staff can benefit from flexible time arrangements including working from home
    Generous sick pay policy as well as good company maternity/ paternity/ adoption leave
    Living wage employer

    Cons

    Many incompetent staff especially on mid-management level
    Lack of training for new employees
    Big staff turnover due to stressful working environment and lack of progression
    Performance reviews are a joke and a formality. Managers are discouraged from giving all members of their teams good grades, grades are subjective and often based on the personal opinion of the manager about the employee not the quality of work. Performance review doesn't impact career progression.
    Unless you are on a senior level, forget about salary increases or bonuses.
