    I have been working at Thorntons (UK) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lovely team and great customers. You can always make people smile with chocolate. Some good higher management who care

    Cons

    Lack of store hours, head office don't listen to stores, we can't do our jobs as most sections in head office incompetent. Senior management need to follow through on promises

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on your promises made. Interact with stores and accept feedback from store managers/ teams
