Assistant Category Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Dixons Retail full-time

ProsGreat supplier base with exciting technologies in some categories
Nice people in pockets

ConsLow pay
Unclear pathway for progression
Unprofessional buying practices
Low morale
No social element - rarely a staff party
Drab working environment and uninspiring location
Very bureaucratic

Advice to Senior ManagementChange your location, reward talent not sycophancy and look to great employers in your sector like John lewis and sainsburys as an example - otherwise you will continue to struggle to attract or keep the type of intelligent people who will keep your organisation afloat.
