    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    the people you work alongside becoming good friends. nice office space.

    Cons

    poor morale. very much a stress induced environment. very few people actually like their job. not much room for progression and if so would take a few years. a lot of people there have been there for 10 years plus. Company seems to be stuck in old values although they give off they are leaders.
