I worked at Marks & Spencer full-time

Pros

Great staff discount. The people who work there are lovely and friendly. The company has a great ethos and holds its firm to its principles.

Cons

I felt very stuck in terms of progression as, despite asking repeatedly, I was never able to discuss a career plan with my line manager. Also, the work-life balance can be bad during busy periods.
