    I have been working at Burberry full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Free lunch - Sample Sales - Nice Office building - Good wages (if you negotiate)

    Cons

    - Dis-organised - Lack of clarity and strength from LT - Lack of defined processes or procedures. A lot of out of date and archaic systems - No fair performance measurement across the entire business

    Advice to Management

    I would stop promoting people based on their hot shot chat and consultancy speak. A lot of the senior management/director level are not experts in their area. Reduce the reliance on consultants and contractors and try to retain the knowledge in the business.

    Pros

    Fruit Sample sales Free monthly lunches Lovely roof

    Cons

    No progression opportunities, very difficult to have conversations about salary or development (both of which are abysmal). Workload is distributed very unevenly within teams, clear favouritism allowing some employees to spend their time on whatever projects they want and their colleagues needing to pick up the work.
