    I have been working at The Very Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunities to work with great, global brands including Disney, Nike, Adidas, Apple. Great office environment with access to internal office gym, where employees are encouraged to focus on work / life / heath & wellbeing balance. Pension and benefits outshine many other competitors in the North West as a total working package.

    Cons

    Internal opportunities don't often become available.

    Advice to Management

    Flexible working needs to become more of SD culture. Maternity pay is still an area that the business needs to improve.
