    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at H&M

    Pros

    Management receives 3 weeks vacation & full benefits. Good pay if negotiated.

    Cons

    The workload is extreme and the timelines are nonsensical. There is a divide between management teams in store and a lot of catty behavior. Leaders are indirect and do not hold bad behaviors accountable, but talk about staff in an unprofessional way behind their backs. Time efficiency is expected but not upheld by all leaders.
