      The Boys Club

      Pros

      Most staff members are amazing to work with including a handful of management members. The Brand Itself Sample sales Company discount

      Cons

      Boys Club Mentality (friends of friends fill high level roles and those under that umbrella are safe from HR cases) A “not what you know but who you know” promotion selection process Objectives are irrelevant, your score is predetermined on likability. Some Managers forced by senior managers to score staff below average without knowing staff members workloads or objectives. Senior managers and some directors can’t get the basics right, poor budgeting, poor management, bullying tactics, blame culture without accountability. If you aren’t a “yes” person, you will soon realise joining a union is a must. Training provided on a face fits selection If you ask for pay rises your pretty much told you should be happy to be working for Burberry and the benefits it adds to your CV. Outdated software has money thrown at it than admit it’s not fit for purpose. Hard work and innovative ideas will be ripped off and passed off as managers work or ideas. Town hall open forum questions are now always filtered and hard questions ignored or not answered. ****IF YOU GET A JOB, JOIN A UNION “GMB”****

      Worst Experience

      9 Jun 2021 - Anonymous Employee in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Summer Fridays are the only pro.

      Cons

      The company is incredibly corporate however entirely disorganised, so nothing ever succeeds and all efforts and work feels pointless most of the time. There is no alignment between departments so if anything is ever a success it's a miracle. There is a strange ego based hirearchy, which comes from a selection of over paid individuals who put more emphasis on their own needs, rather than their teams and business needs. There is a false sense of support that is ushered from the HR department. This in regard to emotional wellbeing, diversity & inclusitivity, which feels insincere. The office is a toxic environment, which comes from the top, through all levels creating an unpleasant environment. Do not work here.

      Pros

      Great community of like-minded individuals who come from diverse backgrounds. Everyone is on the same page about wanting the best for Burberry. A lot of young people.

      Cons

      Can't think of any cons, except that you have to dress your best every day (informal, but a lot of big names to impress).
