      Pros

      Work 3 days a week with a rotating 4th shift. So plenty of personal time with Mrs and family

      Cons

      Communication withing the higher ranks is a joke can't seem to get dates right for people etc, And only selected people may advance within and usually get told they have gotten the job before it's even gone on the board.

      Pros

      People are nice and friendly. Desire to modernise. Some senior leadership with digital mindset.

      Cons

      Archaic culture and systems. Acts more like a traditional retail company than a tech organisation. Defunct tech stacks, underinvested, bad pay. Some leadership who still act like mill owners.

      Pros

      They talk a good game but back it up, the culture is brilliant. Forward thinking and always looking at how to improve customer and colleague journey. Close connection between SMT and colleagues meaning key messages delivered really well. Great benefits and probably the best office spaces in the North West.

      Cons

      No downsides for me, I am only leaving to pursue a passion of mine and was given an opportunity too good to turn down.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I’m pleased to hear you are enjoying a diverse role, hybrid working and supportive colleagues; Belonging, Growth and everyday learning is really important to us. The feedback on progression is helpful too; hopefully this Quarter’s Development Plans focus has been helpful and if you have other ideas or would like to discuss further, do reach out. All the best, Selina Group Planning & Performance Director
