    Ability and talent acknowledged but an overall lack of information from management

    Pros

    Floor managers do praise a job well done and are quick to recognise talent and ability. Also the benefits are good.

    Cons

    Too many floor managers at times create confusion amongst staff regarding what needs to be done. Rarely ever see store/area managers, it would be useful to get feedback from a higher level which isn't filtered through several other managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more feedback and trying to sell the Directory to distracted shoppers is a hard job and too much pressure is put on reaching targets that are often impossible to reach, creating a lot of Directory applications with false information!

    I have been working at Next (UK) full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good salary, good relationship with fellow colleagues.

    Cons

    Obsession with target meeting and performance. Seems to have a blame culture where it's considered more appropriate to find someone to blame rather than a way of rectifying the solution. Poor inter department communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow regional centers to control their own operation using their experience and local knowledge they have gained over the years. Do not rely so heavily on computer generated solutions an plans as they are frequently inaccurate and impractical. Listen to peoples opinions or advice as they may have valid points before dismissing it immediately.
