    I have been working at THG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Whether it’s an acquisition, an implementation of a new product or black Friday prep, you can guarantee no two days are the same at THG. If you love what you do you won’t mind putting in the hours to help the company achieve success. If you go over and above it won’t go unnoticed and you’ll be rewarded accordingly. You have the opportunity to be entrepreneurial and many THG employees have seen their ideas come to fruition. To summarise, if you like the idea of working for an organisation where you can work across many different industries and succeed together, THG is for you...

    Cons

    Hours can be long but always with good reason. We are working on many exciting projects in a diverse business with lots of new technologies - we are often the first to do and try things, so the longs hours fly by without even noticing! Things can change in a heartbeat and those that like structure, stability and routine may struggle to work in such a fast paced environment.

    I have been working at THG full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Supportive team, management support/trust. -Great culture - lots of friendly people. -Free parking at Media City. -Never bored - no 2 days are the same, varied tasks. -Future thinking - push for automation and eliminating mediocre tasks. I started with THG at the start of the pandemic. Although a strange experience, management have been extremely supportive and THG's pandemic response has been solely focused on the well-being of the employee's.

    Cons

    5 hour per week longer than previous role. Not really an issue though as it's only an hour extra per day and the day goes so quickly.
