      Pros

      Benefits, work-life balance, range of projects, fast-pace and senior-leadership accessibility. People focused and a growth mindset culture (especially leaders).

      Cons

      Diversity, inconsistent development plans, internal feedback culture, lack of structure in meetings. Feels relatively hierarchical sometimes.

      Pros

      I work in the Online team and it's a great experience. The team is extremely friendly, the leadership team is very approachable and focus a lot on the team happiness, work/life balance and career development

      Cons

      This is not necessarily the case in all the other teams across Tesco, the salary progression is very poor. Make sure you negotiate properly your salary when you come in cause it won't increase easily after that...
