    A shame

    Pros

    Colleagues are amazing, as the same struggle is felt by everyone.

    Cons

    Constant micromanagement, you are treated as if you were a machine, with targets (not just KPI’s) in all areas and constant performance reviews as a reminder that you should over-perform at all times. No human side of work, always something that employees do wrong, even when management sees they are good at their work they will still push and find something you could do better and it makes employees lose their self- confidence. So if you want to feel like you are making a difference, this place is definitely not for you and will drive you through an anxious and depressed mood even before you start work at 8. Constant reviews are given but nothing changes.

    Redundancies on endless repeat

    5 Feb 2020 - Customer Service Representative in London, England, England

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    My colleagues in customer service were actually all very bright and clever people. HR tries to offer little perks, there were cinema nights and Friday beers and decent socials.

    Cons

    The company struggled a few times, in my time there there were 2 waves of redundancies, the last one cut 50% of the workforce. Another before my time. This cycle seems to be on endless repeat and means a lot of stress and insecurity for everyone. Not a climate for ideas and change to flourish. In general there is not much room for innovation and there are no opportunities to learn or grow or climb the ladder. Communication top down is bad and managers generally don't seem to trust the staff. Departments don't talk to each other. Marketing planned promos on their own it seemed, purchasing knew nothing of and did not get extra stock in. CS were the ones calling all the disappointed customers. Things finally seemed to change in 2018 with a new CEO Jeremy S., but he left and it went downhill again.

    AVOID!

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Nice shared kitchen/communal area. Good distance from a couple of food markets.

    Cons

    - Huge staff turnover (including CEO and other C level staff). - Continuous failure to reach profitability. - Zero career progression. Persistent false promises that lead you to stagnate in a company going absolutely nowhere. - No job security; regular mass redundancies to reduce costs of a business never far from trouble. - Cross departmental communication non existent. JUST NEVER WORK THERE!
