      Pros

      I’ve been working at Wowcher for nearly 3 years, it’s a great place to start a sales career. Commission is really good, work hard and you get paid well. I’ve met some amazing people who will be life long friends, we have a great office vibe, lots of socials and brilliant twice yearly parties. What’s not to love

      Cons

      Can’t really think of any

      Toxic Environment

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Fun parties Great commission scheme Some great people within company as a whole

      Cons

      No personal or professional development available General toxic environment, some teams being very immature and generally sexist. Lack of organisation as a company as a whole. Lack of appreciation and support for staff and general pressure on sales people to solve every problem. Hardly a sales role by the end, basically glorified compliance and admin due to the amount of added work load onto sales team with new procedures. Lack of understanding from management about time management with all new processes and expectations but no more time to do it in. ALOT OF STRESS AND PRESSURE- passive aggressive emails late at night or early in the morning from management if things weren't going well (I'd prefer a strategic meeting to make a plan rather than a virtual scolding)

      Pros

      Great supportive team & managers Great commission Your voice can be heard from any level, senior management open to trying new ideas Fun place to work, everyone genuinely gets on Not hardcore sales, more relationship building. It feels like you are helping people rather than selling to them

      Cons

      Progression path could be clearer Basic salary is probably lower than average, but commission more that outweighs this and waking up and not dreading work helps!

      A great place to start a career, but most people don't want to stay

      Pros

      Wowcher's biggest asset is its PEOPLE! They have some extremely talented, innovative, hard working and kind staff on their books. The Manchester office was a fun, young and vibrant workplace with some issues (but to be expected with a fast paced sales environment). I do believe lower level management have all the best intentions. It's a great place to start a career- you learn a lot about hospitality, e-commerce, commerciality and business but the pressures are low. It is quite a 'sales-y' environment, without being completely toxic. It can feel like you're self employed at times as you manage your pipeline, your time and your earnings and this doesn't suit everybody as some people need more structure, guidance and drive. If this does suit you and you're willing to put the graft in, the job can be financially very rewarding. There is definitely a 'Wowcher mould' and not everyone fits into it. During the pandemic, Wowcher were good at being flexible with working patterns etc.

      Cons

      Wowcher's biggest downfall is their Silo mentality. There is no/limited cohesion between the head office and regional offices, between the different departments and between senior and lower level staff. It can feel like loads of little start up businesses working for one big multi-million dollar business. It would have been nice to feel part of something bigger than just one very small part of the business. Since the pandemic hit, executive leadership has been poor. Morale between sales staff is extremely low and people are feeling less valued than ever. There is a constant pressure to perform in these difficult times and this is often communicated badly- threatening to take away commission is possibly the worst idea Wowcher has ever had to increase productivity. The senior exec team pile pressure on to managers and hit them hard over revenues and they're so consumed by it that they don't actually have the time to nurture and bring the best out of their staff. This seems a shame when there's so many people within the business that want to be there and want to do well but their line managers don't have the time or resources to actually unlock the potential. There is little opportunity to really progress in the business- they can change your title and your base pay but this is just a facade for most, the responsibilities and job doesn't actually change. I think if there was a more clear path of progression where you got more responsibilities, they would hold on to more talented staff.
