    Pros

    Multiple backgrounds, cultures, ideas and plenty of opportunity which mean you never have a boring day. Constantly new tasks to explore in a “first man on the moon” approach, excellent place for developing new skill sets. Salary and bonus is competitive locally, especially as many commute from nearby towns. Progression is key in terms of right mindset from the off see’s quicker progression, lots of colleagues at a...

    Cons

    Gadbrook office while tidy’ish now seem dated as new offices have emerged in Manchester there doesn’t seem the same focus. Public transport links are poor if you don’t live locally or drive, especially if you’re working outside of office hours. Fast pace and work balance isn’t for everyone, THG is always alive

    Advice to Management

    For local management, great there’s lots to explore and improve but a balance with some tasks and size proves challenging.

    Pros

    Constant Opportunities and ability to grow your career. Great challenges and different technologies on a weekly basis. Lots of variety that will set you up for your future career

    Cons

    The speed and flexibility can create some stressful situations when direction changes or projects come in with high expectations, but the alternative is boredom, complacency, and stagnation!

    Advice to Management

    More communication and updates would help people understand their impact, etc.

    Pros

    You would appreciate people around you and be a mentally normal person after leaving the crazy house ruled by arrogance and dictatorship.

    Cons

    Where should I start, you are sold to a dream that you can achieve big accomplishments with THG by working hard and delivering results. But it is a trick used to take advantage of conscientious employees without providing support, career progression opportunities or promised bonuses that are judged on performances. Working hard can never beat sucking up someone with a big title in this twisted place. This company does...

    Pros

    Brand Name, New Office Space being built

    Cons

    Uneducated Managers, Lack of racial diversity, Inexperienced Recruiters, Average pay - bonuses are usually never given

    Advice to Management

    I saw Hut group turn away a candidate because she was more qualified than any of them recently and they were threatened by her talent. I have seen little racial diversity in the office besides the native roles they have to hire for. There is no formal promotion procedure it is based on who you suck up to. Silly hours working into long evenings with no additional pay in the head office.
