    I worked at John Lewis & Partners full-time

    Pros

    If you like the catering at wetherspoons then the canteen here will suit you right

    Cons

    Manager trend of coming from stores and not skilled, experienced or educated in their functions such as photography, production etc. Specifically this arm of the company is a strange one and tends to be the poorer sister, the Headquarters in Victoria get a far better deal. 5 stars for work life balance because there seems to be more tea-breaks than actual work in this place

    Advice to Management

    Management operations at the content production hub are school-like and treat staff like they are young students. It's a strange place overall and not really worth the commute into the ends of London. Management is absolutely appalling, specifically within the fashion teams
