    I worked at The LEGO Group full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Amazing products, good discounts, nice customer interactions

    Cons

    Out of touch senior management, low pay for retail for sales assistants, impossible targets for bonuses and pay rises, trying to sell products with ever increasing prices to people who don't earn much, brand retail doesn't count when it comes to LEGO's values

    Cons

    - Promotions are quite hard to come by - Reduce meeting culture - Make it easier to stop something that isn't working rather than proving it doesn't work - I no longer work there :(

    Advice to Management

    - Promote more from within and create a better learning and development programme for employees
