    I have been working at Lidl full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you are seeking a career, then Lidl is the place for you. Yes you will be challenged and have to work hard but with that comes success. The company is very clear that it wants to grow and the message in the company is that every single employee is part of that growth. Clear communications from Top Level management downwards. #Wearelidl - is very much part of the company culture and everyone works towards helping and support each other. I have seen this take place in our operations and support departments.

    Cons

    Some of the IT is a little outdated but that is being addressed with investment from the company.
