    Advice to Management

    If you want to work for a retailer then M&S is up there in the top two. If I ever leave the company it will be for a different role, not for a different retailer.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Marks & Spencer full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good environment, fair people policies, trusted brand, reasonable benefits

    Cons

    Lack of direction and strategy means things change constantly, but with lack of positive results. Money wasted on ideas that are not scaleable and don’t drive sales.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the customer and store colleagues more. Women’s fashion has had the same problems for years and it needs to be led by someone who understand and and loves product.
