    I have been working at THG full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been working at THG for 5 years this year and been a Team leader for 1 and half now. Really enjoy the role and have an amazing team to work with. THG helps you grow and develop where you want to be in the business.

    Cons

    My team could have more staff members to help reduce the work load.

    I have been working at THG full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great office atmosphere, very relaxed and friendly with loads of great people alongside. Good company benefits and discounts etc and the execs legitmately seem to care about their staff and looking after their own. Very ambitious and growing rapidly.

    Cons

    Longer than average working week/ days, so work life balance can feel a bit off. CS often feels undervalued as a deparment and the management structure within is constantly changing.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at THG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Christmas and summer party High levels of responsibility

    Cons

    Long working hours expected, approx 8-6 daily. High turnover of staff so constant reshuffling. Graduates offered very little support and only 1 day allowed per exam, for both ACA and CIMA. All exams take approx 3 years to complete, if you leave within a year of completion you will be expected to pay back all of the fees. Essentially, you will be here for a minimum of 4-5 years. Poorly structured graduate scheme which constantly changes, be careful before signing up.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at THG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You learn a lot very quickly as it's sink or swim and the culture is really fast-paced. Gain a good knowledge of all things digital and e-commerce as the role spans beyond that of the job description. Generally really good people (at execution level, not management)

    Cons

    All projects are done as cheap as possible with little to no staff training, so efficiency is poor and stress is huge. Management are generally in place based on length of tenure, but retention rate is so poor that this will often be around a year, meaning inexperienced management are in place who have had no one to learn from. Management will lose interest in a project after about 5 minutes so nothing is completed to a high standard as it's always an 'on the newer shinier idea' mentality. All staff incentives are for investment and recruitment purposes (ALWAYS a videographer at any event however big or small) and this is super transparent
