      Toxic

      Pros

      Free soft drinks Work parties SAYE scheme - you have to stay a min of 3 years to cash in shares which is rare because of staff turnover Bonus

      Cons

      Expected to work crazy hours with no overtime pay - you get told upfront that your working hours are 9-5 but working late is required. No lunch break either Pay is shocking compared to other competitor companies Management make it clear to you that you are replaceable on a daily basis Only people who suck up to the people management like get promoted no matter whether they are good at their job or not People get fired over small things which is illegal but they get away with it Males get paid more than females for the same job/level which is again illegal but when someone highlights it you get told that you aren’t allowed to speak about salaries. People are just too scared to say anything as they know they will get fired The staff turnover is really high, people don’t really last long. Lost count of the amount of people that have left or got fired in my 2 years here Management seem to like to cull staff every now and again and will just get rid of a group of employees, probably to keep people on their toes Just the most toxic place to work, has really affected my mental health

      Merchandising - Do not recommend

      Pros

      Sociable environment pre-covid, casual dress

      Cons

      Extremely unrealistic workload, very low pay, long hours (expected to work well into the evening sometimes 9/10pm daily in order to get bare minimum work done), when salary and hours are compared it's well below minimum wage for people lower down in the teams but company doesn't care, constant IT issues meaning work cannot be completed, can be cliquey depending on who you are on the wrong side of.
