      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at John Lewis & Partners full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Friendly people, opportunities for shadowing in the business to learn more, good location, opportunities to take on more responsibility, subsided staff restaurant and bar, dedication to promoting health & well-being, bi-annual trading conferences that are informative and engaging, bonus, staff discount - plus lots of other great benefits, societies, ticket subsidies, discounts, etc

      Cons

      Low paying industry, limited opportunities for progression result in a lot of top-performers leaving the business, too much time spent on reporting for high levels in management rather than being able to get on with your work, need to chase lots of other teams within the business in order to get the job done, bonus doesn't factor in individual performance

      Advice to Management

      Unlock greater rewards for high-performers or they will leave for better-paying jobs
