    I have been working at Missguided part-time

    Pros

    50% discount on work clothes Being on the tills was nice and easy; time went so fast

    Cons

    Managers always talking about the staff between themselves and not in a nice way Very busy stressful periods some times

    Advice to Management

    Don’t speak about your employees with other employees as they’ll find out and it looks so bad on managers

    Pros

    The original peole were great

    They let XPO take over running of the warehouse and the moral went down hill

    Advice to Management

    Try to break up the management cliques. Team Leader to Ops manager, I wonder if nationality had something to do with it?

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

    Pros

    The office layout is fun, there is a "selfie tunnel" in the social space, along with a swing room, sleeping pods, a ping pong table and more! Missguided get involved in some exciting collaborations and the work is very varied which is brilliant for the team's skills matrix. There are many company engagement activities to get involved in which is great for new starters to meet new people!

    Cons

    There are no cons to mention.

      I have been working at Missguided full-time

      Pros

      - Friendly atmosphere, not frosty or anything everybody is welcoming - Early finishes on Fridays - Great work space and offices - Nice perks e.g. competitions/freebies - Getting more structured slowly but surely - Generally a great place to work

      Cons

      - Quite slow for progression - Hasn't been much structure with changing strategies etc but definitely seeing improvements - Systems are very manual - Staff discount is only 30% and doesn't apply to branded product - Not hugely sociable, definitely could do more here - Location of offices makes it more difficult to socialise I think...would be better if it was more central I think
