    Approves of CEO

    I worked at The Body Shop full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Lots of nice friendly people to work with. Nice location for people wanting to start a family and/or be in a relatively rural setting. Good background of ethics.

    Cons

    Lots of old or poorly managed processes and a lot of waste. Quite low salaries and poor progression for staff in Littlehampton office. Lots of internal strife between departments holding back real progress in some areas. Quite low standards and several jobs done poorly with little evident performance management.
