      Great People, Decent Responsibilities, Questionable Compensation

      Pros

      Great seniors on the team, although upper management always seemed disconnected from what was going on in actual production (might be because the studio's so far away from the flagship store in Knightsbridge). The work was often quite repetitive but good team members made up for the hum drum days.

      Cons

      Not much room for upward moves or career development, as in most big companies creative teams it's often the case that the early birds get all the worms. Most of the benefits revolved around discounts and access to Harrods products and offerings, which was slightly in poor taste given the sad state of remuneration at Harrods.
