      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at The Body Shop full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      The business is viewed upon as an ethical brand which does its best to support small communities around the world, it has also played some importance in banning animal testing. The Body Shop has an internal policy for all which allows flexible ways of working.

      Cons

      The Body Shop has a very outward approach, internally people are treated unfairly and bullying is recognised as being ok. There is very little support from managers, processes are flawed and workload is unmanageable. There is not a lot of scope for career progression and generally the office environment is unpleasant (toxic as someone has mentioned already). There is a lot of product and material wastage, a huge amount,...

        I worked at The Body Shop full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        A beautiful brand with a meaning, that fights for loyal causes such as animal rights, female empowerment and fair trade around the world. Unfortunately these amazing projects do not echo the toxic atmosphere happening inside.

        Cons

        Toxic work atmosphere. Terrible work ethics from many managers. Bullying is permitted, if not encouraged by managers. Workloads are incredibly uneven and whoever screams the loudest gets appraisal. I wWould not recommend working there to any of my friend.

        Advice to Management

        Stop bullying when it's flagged or you will lose all your best elements.
