    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 8 years

    Pros

    Burberry is a world renowned Brand with a rich history. To remain relevant in the luxury market the Brand continues to evolve so change is a constant. The Brand receives much press and a constant social media presence so the pride in product is strong.

    Cons

    During my tenure the Brand changed quite a bit. What once felt like a small company with such a positive work environment has changed to feel more corporate and cold. Retail has become a more challenging workplace, so the company continues to feel those challenges and to work to make advances. There is the typical stress, politics, and reactionary practices found in most large companies.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and recognize the positive contributions of every employee. Focusing and rewarding effort and progress will get you the end results you desire.
