    I have been working at Missguided full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility, friendly colleagues, nice work space at the HQ!

    Cons

    Communication is extremely poor from the board and the senior management team. Senior management leave and you find out from Drapers before company comms goes out (if any does). As well as finding out if we're getting bonus or not after it should of been paid out!
    I haven't had objectives at Missguided for quite a while but I've been lucky with the work that's come up whilst I've been here and made sure I have planned my own careers path.
    Number of social events has significantly decreased.
    It's very cliquey, if your face fits then you'll do very well.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to all colleagues, we've been promised monthly stand ups but they have never happened! Communicating will reduce the Chinese whispers that go around the office!

    Pros

    50% discount on work clothes
     Being on the tills was nice and easy; time went so fast

    Managers always talking about the staff between themselves and not in a nice way
    Very busy stressful periods some times

    Advice to Management

    Don’t speak about your employees with other employees as they’ll find out and it looks so bad on managers

    Pros

    The original peole were great

    They let XPO take over running of the warehouse and the moral went down hill

    Advice to Management

    Try to break up the management cliques. Team Leader to Ops manager, I wonder if nationality had something to do with it?

    I have been working at Missguided full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The office layout is fun, there is a "selfie tunnel" in the social space, along with a swing room, sleeping pods, a ping pong table and more!

    Missguided get involved in some exciting collaborations and the work is very varied which is brilliant for the team's skills matrix.

    There are many company engagement activities to get involved in which is great for new starters to meet new people!

    Cons

    There are no cons to mention.
