    Pros

    Lots of social and seasonal events to make you feel inclusive and welcomed. Good work/life balance, cares about their employees wellbeing, great values and always supports them. Opportunity to travel to other offices, staff discount, Friday wine time etc

    Cons

    So many teams and departments involved in one project that the company often lacks efficiency to get a job done.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more responsibility to lower levels

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Farfetch full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Farfetch is fast paced and challenging, but fun. It is diverse both in cultural and social demographics and experience within teams which allows for greater opportunity for knowledge exchange. It is quite social and engaging, with quite a flat heirarchy, allowing for closer contact with senior leadership. You feel valued and rewarded for your contribution.

    Cons

    As in any fast paced environment, it is often difficult to see the wood from the trees. Constantly moving at a million miles an hour comes with its own challenges, but you can thrive if this is your style of working.

    Advice to Management

    Given it is a really high pressure, high stress, fast paced and challenging environment, there should be more done to educate around burnout and how to manage this in your teams. And more focus should be put on team bonding as the high pressure environment can increase likelihood of team relationship breakdowns.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in people and provide career clear paths to retain talent; Promote based on merit (development, skills, business need, etc.) and not just based on time at Farfetch

    Pros

    - Amazing company culture - Flexible working - Visionary leader - Really interesting and varied work

    Cons

    - Don't pay enough - Career progression is unclear - The company is still pretty chaotic and trying to find its footing - some processes are not as seamless as they should be (also org design could be improved) - Some of the current managers shouldn't be in their roles - they're highly mediocre and it would seem they're in their roles because of longevity in the company. Very demotivating for skilled junior staff who...

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your talented people, nurture them and give them opportunity to grow. Longevity does not a good manager make.

    I have been working at Farfetch full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Culture is amazing - really encourages collaboration across teams but equally enables employees to work autonomously and come up with creative solutions for the business. Great mat leave policy (6 months full pay), flexible working / work from home possible, and generous vacation time. People are generally brilliant, really keen and enthusiastic and smart so great to come to work and be surrounded by such high performers;...
