    I worked at Burberry full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    great benefits, Holidays, Sample Sale

    Cons

    The biggest store. It used to be a great place to work. I used to have good managers who care about team members and feel be treated fairly. Team members were happy at work before. However, many caring managers are left the company. Hard working employee hasn't be treated fairly if they don't have "connection" with senior management. Promotion opportunities are more likely for manager's friends. ( work performance doesn't matter much to promotion ) Hard-working employee are focus on their target during the day, no time to flatter floor managers. As a result, some colleagues become focus on building relationship with managers instead focusing on their main role. That means, If you are good at talking,flattering,doing some manager's duties that you might have opportunity to be promoted although KPI is not good. Great work performance is not rewarding much that makes people feel frustrated. Some line managers acted differently in front of senior management. Many of them only care what is beneficial to their career. They actually don't care about your issues but they have to pretend they care about it.

    I worked at Burberry full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, especially family leave Opportunity to travel to Italy and France if on product-focused role Italian lessons Discount/ sample sales Innovative

    Cons

    Certain departments have morale issues. I was based in supply chain, where significant staff turnover and budget freezes led to overworked staff. Better salaries can be found in LVMH and Kering groups for the same conditions. Plenty of colleagues left to competitors. Non-technical consultants recruited from Deloitte tend to be promoted quickly. There is a strong salary difference between technical and non-technical staff. Some managerial staff are on record for bullying staff and I know of one with multiple sexual harassment allegations. The HR dept did little to address these issues.

    I worked at Burberry full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Sample sales & staff discounts Various opportunities to take part in project Great teams and line manager Good location Summer Fridays when team can leave at 12:30

    Cons

    The BBS hierarchy is very flat - staff is employed as admins so that the company can save more money, but this leads to lack of progression opportunities Clear division between Leeds and London ( London teams have free lunches on daily basis yet Leeds once a month following clear dissatisfaction after employee survey results) SLTs are savings driven and do not care about high rate of staff turnover. They are happy to let good staff members to leave rather than increase their salary Company prefers to hire contractors and pay them more for few months contracts rather than utilise knowledgable people within the teams
