I worked at O2 full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I worked for O2 for 4 years, started off part time in my home town, then they offered me a position in a store closer to my university and supported me throughout my degree and when I had finished.

They have great employee perks
Fantastic training scheme
Progress is always available is you are always supported
You get support from the manufactures of the devices as well
Very good wage - even better if you can get overtime
Fantastic days out and meetings - they always keep you in the loop!

Cons

I actually do not think I have a bad thing to say about this place!

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing, I enjoyed my time at this company and whilst it didn't offer me my forever job, I'd go back in a heart beat!

    I have been working at O2 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good restaurant, nice office buildings and good work perks. Shuttle service from train station so handy if that’s how you commute

    Cons

    Under industry average for salary
    Toxic team environment
    Senior management give little support
    Very hierarchical
    A floored performance system
    Teams that work against each other

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that work for you, and support them. Review the many layers or management that aren’t needed. Put bodies in at the ‘work-end’ of the structure so things can actually happen
