    I worked at Burberry full-time

    Pros

    its a great company. while i was there, some restructing happened which cause the teams to have more work. As long as the communication is open with other teams, the day passes by fast. They also have great team outings, and lunch one day a week. Office is beautiful

    Cons

    Hard to progress and raises are small. Dont always promote from within

    I have been working at Burberry full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You will know if a company is good or not in difficult times, like Covid nowadays. No terminations, no salary cut offs ( full salary ) and still intact annual leave days. I’m proud of it from day 1 of joining, I keep on admiring the way this brand treats its employees every single day. An absolutely healthy environment to be part of.

    Cons

    None so far, no complaints at all

    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.
