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

    Pros

    Usually nice culture, it all depends on each department
    Reasonable pay, annual increase in salary

    Cons

    Very small chance or no chance at all to get promoted unless you are German or English, or you are already in the company for over 10 years (and you know both German and English as mother tongue). Usually promotions are happening because the employees are chasing the management for a promotions - the management is not quite proactive in this aspect.
    Activities are not that exciting and it is rare that it helps you develop. People need to do a lot of repetitive work because the systems are not very smart, work that could be easily done by a more developed system.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in diversity, equality of chances and recognise talent and look also to people who are part of a minority (women, black, immigrant, etc.)
    Make people do tasks that will matter also in 5 years time
