I have been working at RB full-time (less than an year)

Pros

There is a lot of opportunity to take on responsibility at a very early stage. There is also a great opportunity to travel and work across various brands.

Cons

There is a bad work life balance. Especially due to the awkward commute between London and Slough- lack of bars etc in Slough also mean less team bonding.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move out of Slough

    RB gives opportunity for a fast career development but the high level of management is cost centric.

    I worked at RB as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fast career development. There is an exceptional team spirit .Many and different responsibilities from day one which gives motivation to try harder.

    Cons

    Unfortunately is the example of a cost driven multinational company . In order to minimize the operating costs they sacrifice many talent managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suggest to become more anthropocentric and to take the advantage of your biggest asset, your employees.

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment, you get a chance to do a lot of project on a short amount of time. Looks good on ur resume
    With no processes stopping you, you get to learn a cross section of business from supply chain to sales management

    Cons

    No direction from top team in terms of strategy . With changes happening within the leadership team every other month. Zero HR presence in terms employee friendly initiatives, with top team worrying about their own self, theres no focus on on developing their teams career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your brands will never achiece market leadership, when everyone in the company is looking to jump ships. Need initiatives to retain talent
