    I have been working at Boots full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The care. I've never worked for a business that genuinely has care at the heart for all colleagues and customers.
    You are listened to by senior leaders, and if you're able to back your thinking with evidence, your voice can go a long way.

    Cons

    Stakeholder sign off , sometimes the simplest thing can take too long due to multiple stakeholder involvement.

    Advice to Management

    You don't need to come up with a different strategy every year, sometimes sticking to the same simple plan but doing it well is all that's needed. Plus you will get the buy in from the wider business when we start hearing the same thing multiple times, nobody expects something new all the time.

    Pros

    Most assistant managers are lovely.
    Good salary.

    Cons

    Some managers can be unfair, especially those that have their "favourite" employees (not because of the work they do). They put a lot of pressure on people.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone the same.
