    I have been working at next full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Induction was handled very well by a very competent HR team. A forward thinking organisation that is finding success by embracing modern technologies. Lack of red tape which is empowering (if handled with diligence and care).

    Cons

    Not very rich in system documentation. But adequately supported by colleagues with extensive and in-depth knowledge. The location is a bit remote. But adequate public transport connections and easy short commute.

    Advice to Management

    Please implement Work From Home sooner rather than later. This will improve staff throughput and retention.

    I worked at next part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Amazing and fun people to meet Early to the sales so you can grab what you want before everyone else does! Management are nice Ability to progress if you put the effort in Great perks on the side Staff discount

    Cons

    Taking a day off sick made you feel like a target, as if you've caused it on purpose Being called to come in for a day and refusing, same thing as the point above, you felt guilty as if you've done something bad by not being able to work a shift they want you in for out of your normal rota

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really, but just for some managers to not react so bluntly when calling in / refusing an out of rota shift.
