    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Wowcher full-time

    Pros

    Breakfast on a Friday is generous and varied, quarterly budget for a team social is always used, monthly All Bar Wowcher is generous (drinks), Christmas and Summer parties are generous, sample sales - although items that have been deemed unfit to sell to consumers end up in there!! There are some lovely lovely people that work there.

    Cons

    There is one person at the top who calls the shots and if you don't pander to him you won't succeed - if you're not a yes man this is not the place for you. Don't expect to have a voice. Some members of senior management show very little respect for their employees, their time and can be dishonest. Workload and deadlines can be unrealistic and priorities ever changing and not necessarily well thought out/backed up. Some team members are put under an unhealthy amount of stress. If you're straight out of uni its a good stepping stone to something better, but other than that I'd avoid like the plague. I was warned against this company before starting by several people, and I really wish I'd listened. My experience at this company has knocked my confidence both on a personal and on a professional level.

    I have been working at Wowcher full-time

    Pros

    Location of the office is decent, two minutes walk from the tube. Office has a great culture, I work with the most supportive team of people who will always help so you can get the best results. I’ve learned some good sales skills whilst working here. Management have a full open door policy and are approachable about anything. CEO is a top geezer he joins us in footy nights he is an all round top guy. Wow her parties are definitely the highlight of the year.

    Cons

    Office is very hot during the summer, this can be more difficult without a relaxed dress code.

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

    Pros

    The London office culture is great, I've met some of the best people and have made some life friends. I started at Wowcher around a year ago and my start wasn't as good as I hoped, new management came in and all that changed. I have learned so much over the past year, I now feel confident in my own ability, I am sure I have not only grown as a sales person but grown as an individual too. There are great development opportunities, the company is continuing to grow, driving people to be the best they can be. Everyone is very friendly and always make time to help you when your in need.

    Cons

    London office can feel quite on top. Never any real private areas to have important calls with top end merchants
