    I have been working at The Very Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good people, friendly environment, benefits and payed holidays are the best ever I've seen.

    Cons

    Very slow pace, very slow to make any change. Data infrastructure is quite old.

    Thanks for sharing your feedback. There's definitely more left to work on, including (as you say) the continued upgrade of our data infrastructure. We hope to continue making progress on this, so we can release changes ever faster in the near future.

    I have been working at The Very Group part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The variety of projects is what keeps things interesting and is one of the reasons that I have been at Shop Direct for so long. There is always opportunity to get involved in different projects, there is a huge assortment of challenges to get stuck into. The people is the other reason I enjoy working at Shop Direct so much. There is a real team sprint and everyone is willing to collaborate on projects and offer up their experience and advice. You always feel support is there when required. Our data asset is also one of our crown jewels at Shop Direct. We are so lucky to have such a realm of data available at our fingertips to analyse and model. We also have an array of tools to tackle the problem with including SQL, SAS, R and Python to name a few. There is great training material available at Shop Direct which really helps to develop your skills in lots of different areas.

    Cons

    Maternity Pay is currently way below the industry standard (but i believe this is being looked into)
