    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Boots full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Best place to work with ..learnt a lot ..had a great team at both lupset and chimes.

    Cons

    - Didn't get enough salary hike and a package. -in 2010, I was told that company will sponsor me working visa (Tier 2) and because of that I didn't find a new job .. in 2011, I was told that they can't sponsor the visa due to frequent changes in government rules. I would be there by this time if the company had sponsored me the visa or they would have informed me earlier (I could have joined other organisations) and I didn't have to return to my home country after spending lot of money in completing master's.
