      Pros

      Opportunity to learn different areas of work. Nice, friendly colleagues. Relaxed office environment. Fairly flexible work times. Given full pay when furloughed. Working from home through covid.

      Cons

      No pay reviews. Terrible parking situation. The board are stuck in their old ways. Too slow to make any real changes and a lack of willingness to challenge the higher-ups. A lack of fundamentals throughout the business. Restrictive in anything creative. Repetitive, boring campaigns. Money wasted on vanity projects which could otherwise be used to hire more talent.

      Pros

      They were flexible with the working pattern they offered me.

      Cons

      I was left alone for long periods of time 'training' i.e. making it up as I went along. It wasn't the managers fault because they are overburdened and are constantly needed.

      Pros

      Stable job, pay ok, people you work with

      Cons

      Lifting furniture all the time every week and big changes every 3/4 weeks, long hours outside of your contracted hours, 6 day week for example the first half of the year there are 16 weeks of working 6 days and 1 section we have to work 9 weeks straight doing 6 days a week, 10-10 day events within your 6 day week and which they say do 12-10 thinking its fair to you, Head Office not dealing with the back end of the business and passing back to store to deal with.
