    I have been working at Ocado Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Ocado genuinely lives the values it talks about and the teams that I have worked within are all incredibly supportive.

    Cons

    Ocado Group is growing massively, however, all its growth is based out of Head Office. There is no real progression outside of moving into the Implementation Team. This is a great place to get hands-on experience of automation that will allow you to apply this knowledge into future roles, potentially outside of Ocado. .

    HR being on site is difficult to manage when dealing with the team, they often miss out the team manager and go to HR for issues.
