    Hi there, thank you for leaving a review on your few years of working here, and thanks for sharing your thoughts on your personal development; it's something we've heard come through from our new Voice engagement survey and are putting a number of plans in place to support colleagues to development and progress their career at Shop Direct. Whilst those plans take shape, we'd encourage you to take the opportunity to share your ambitions with your manager who can guide you on relevant resources available to you to develop, whether that be through our free employee LinkedIn learning access, attending relevant events or training courses, or exposure to new projects/initiatives within your area.

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

    Pros

    Open plan office with great atmosphere. Staff lovely and always happy to help or advise. Salary good with additional shine benefits. Gym and corporate beauty on site. Flexible hours with a bit of negotiation.

    Cons

    Cannot speak up as seen as negative. Staff not clear on what they should be doing or achieving. Bullying seems to be the way to reach deadlines. Recent changes were chaotic and not managed well. Interim staff Managing changes but didn’t know what it was changing from. Staff moral low.

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

    Pros

    The opportunity to multi skill and move around departments - I have worked in Marketing, Buying, Customer Experience and People (HR) over the last 11 years building my skill set as I go. Great office and facilities - i love the office, its a beautiful ex aircraft hanger with loads of natural light and collaborative open plan feel. Also our on site conferencing facility, juice bar, gym and a personal favorite - the beauty salon are all an added bonus! We're still working on the environment bit... and i think there's going to be even more good stuff to come. Fair pay, progression and bonus - At Shop Direct you can really own and drive your own progression, if you have the right conversations, attitude and drive! Bonus (dependent on performance) is paid in October - ideal timing before Christmas! We get to have our say - we have annual colleague feedback survey that runs twice a year) . I honestly believe that the feedback is listened to and i also feel comfortable to share and talk about things i'm not happy with. Holidays are very generous! 30 days plus bank hols and you can buy or sell up to 5 a year - ideal for jet setters or families. The people are amazing. Brilliant CEO.

    Cons

    I wish we got free food like Google :( but we do get free fruit on Fridays!
