    I have been working at Wiggle full-time

    Pros

    There are some great, hard working people in Wiggle but very few of them get the recognition they deserve
    Its a very stressful environment but on occasion with get together as a team. ATM we are celebrating Tour De France
    I am a biking enthusiast so I do working in the industry

    Cons

    HR and payroll are borderline contemptuous of staff - I have heard them mocking members of staff several times now. Aren't they supposed to be the height of professionalism? I have thought about raising it with Senior Management but who would they go to? It jars with my values to do nothing but what can be done. I am deeply disappointed that the team that are meant to represent us behave in this way unchecked
    Corporate culture but zero benefits
    Can't work from home - not at all flexible for staff with families
    Constant redundancies that we never talk about

    Advice to Management

    If HR want to say inappropriate and personal things maybe don't do it in an open plan office

    Pros

    The work is quite simple

    Most of the employees are friendly

    Some of the TLs recognise hardworkers and help them to achieve better results

    Cons

    The shifts patterns arent very good. Working 6 days a week is too tiresome and we were promised 2 weekends off per month which has now been changed to 1

    People constantly moaning about the job, which isn't that bad

    Temp staff being given contracts only to not hit targets on both wiggle and crc once they are given this and still pass probation which is unfair for people who really want work for the company

    Managers don't listen to team leaders and other employees then get proven wrong

    Advice to Management

    Managers should hear everyone out
    Shift patterns need to reassessed

    I worked at Wiggle full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people are really nice. They are trying their best in a difficult environment. There are attempts to up morale but, it is frowned upon to be having fun so it can be tricky

    Cons

    Management! They make bad decisions and, the proverbial roles down hill. A lot of pressure on everyone and very little support.

    There is no understanding of the need for a work/life balance (working from home is frowned upon).

    The culture is one where it is expected you work extra hours with very little/nothing in return.

    Management are in the habit of passing other people's work off as their own but, are not opposed to throwing someone under the bus if there is a problem.

    If you're not friends with the right people you will be over-looked for promotion, under supported day to day and, generally taken for-granted (irrespective of how hard you work).

    Exceptionally poor and out-dated benefits.

    Avoid at all costs.

    Pros

    There are genuinely passionate and talented people in all areas of the business
    Monthly ride outs for the team to get together and get out of the office on our bikes
    Good facilities
    Informal environment
    Surrounded by great product
    A lot of reviews are negative about hr but the rep I have worked with (Laura) has always been helpful even if I don't agree with all hr policies

    Cons

    communication from execs is non existent. We used to have regular updates but now they don't communicate with the business at all.
    Very corporate policies - HR can be very black and white

    Advice to Management

    Good news or bad execs should always communicate with their staff. We are supposed to be a team
