    Company going through an extended period of deep change which makes for an unsettled workplace.

    Increase meaningful engagement with employees to ensure they have a clear vision for the company's future direction and most importantly, buy into this change.

    I worked at Burberry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great brand, opens career opportunities. Great working environment (office, location, daily fruit, free lunch)

    Cons

    Theory and practice are two very different things in Burberry. Shiny on the outside, rather unimaginative in the inside. Loosing the best talent. Because of historical reasons succession pipeline is clogged with the way too many directors.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to make decisions together. Start investing in people and leadership development. Middle managers around me were shockingly incompetent.
