    I have been working at H&M

    Pros

    Values
    Flexibility
    Learning
    Strong internal methods and systems
    Ethical
    Employee friendly policies and exposure to an international work culture.
    Flexible timing options

    Cons

    Non-transparent management.
    Manipulative and incompetent HR staff. Sometimes the HR is so unprofessional that you start wondering if this is even a company to start with!
    Absence of a clear development plan for employees.
    Salary discussions are usually a monologue.
    Inconsistent reviews and no clear expectations to employees.
    Blame game and politics. Growth is based on everything else but performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire sensible HR managers who don't try to manipulate employees with their unprofessional talks. Bring a "people strategy" to the organisation and try to retain the good employees. Create a trust-based atmosphere by following company values -(these are totally absent from the company at the time this review is written) Make salary discussions a logical dialogue, rather than a dogma. Managers should start caring a little more about all this.
