    Pros

    None, no pros whatsoever at all.

    Outrageously rude head office employees and unrealistic expectations, no regard on how to treat people and contractors with respect and too many management politics and scheming and bullying within the business.

    I worked at Burberry full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility is great and the work environment is perhaps one of the most accepting and relaxed. Sales associates are encouraged to be themselves and show personality.

    Cons

    Unstructured management which changes frequently. Commission and salary below average - again always subject to change. Very figure driven, not very rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on team relationship building and perhaps social events. Adhere to policies if any in place, set examples for all employees.
