    Pros

    Loyal hardworking staff who love the brand and company

    No vision from senior executives who placed zero value on people so talent left, and paid so badly no talent joined. Penny pinching ruined the website going for a cheap not best option which finally brought the company down.

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager 

    I worked at Laura Ashley full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some really nice people that do actually care about colleagues and customers working there. Holiday allowance Free uniform Good discount, at end of season sales Training Fairly relaxed and can speak to (store) management openly and jokingly Nice products Stores support other stores Payroll team are helpful and friendly

    Cons

    High turnover of staff, mainly due to wages compared to what is expected of you. Staff discount is quite often same or less than customer discount. Unprofessional at times No confidientialty No job guarantee due to new owner and his plans for the future Customers (not all) seem to have a personality transplant when they walk through the door

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Laura Ashley full-time

    Pros

    Some nice people Generous with birthday treats

    Cons

    The head office atmosphere is dead quiet, the building is falling apart and it's freezing cold in the winter and too hot in the summer, bad location with only one shop nearby for food. Too many peoples jobs overlapping aswell and putting investment into the wrong places. No clear direction with all processes very slow. Old systems that are outdated and old computers from the 00s. Overall BAD experience
