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

    Pros

    1. gorgeous architecture in the workplace. 2. good commission scheme.

    Cons

    1. management is unprofessional and unknowledgeable. Overall feeling of not caring about their jobs, makes the sales assistant not care. 2. management allows bullying, disrespect to happen to employees, they over look this when the 'bully' is a top seller or they have a personal outside relationship with them. 3. The 'luxury' products that you have to sell you know nothing about as their is minimal training involved. 4. As an example of rudeness from management, I didn't even receive a thankyou or goodbye on my last year. In which I worked at liberty for 2 years. 5. I received one pay rise, and when I asked for another, it was ignored and I didn't even get any reasons why. 6. one of the worst reasons why people don't stay long at Liberty is due to the lack of communication, resulting in no sense of union or community.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Discount Some teams have genuine nice and talented people (leave when they leave) and external appeal of the brand which is entirely lost on me now

    Cons

    Leadership team shocking in their inability to lead + seemingly just there for the pay cheque, CEO commonly known for being exasperatingly inconsistent and one that has no presence in the business at all (I have seen him on floors outside of his own maybe once!), no processes,bedlam. Talk a lot about the progress they've made in the last 2 years but it still is not good enough. No culture. Set of values there on paper because they think they should have them but they don't live by them. Absolutely archaic policies that you would expect off a utility company rather than a modern luxury brand - no working from home (not everyone is permitted a laptop), terrible parental policies, docked pay if you're sick for more than a day in your first year.

    Pros

    Commission system Employee discount Annual leave

    Cons

    - HUGE LACK OF ORGANISATION AND COMMUNICATION - Super toxic environment, gossip all the time - No training (you will be left alone since day 1) Managers expect from you big sales and figures at the end of the day but where is the training???? Temperature conditions are just ridiculous? Honestly during the summer it is boiling inside of the building and during the winter you will see customers shopping with a puffer jacket and gloves on. Ridiculous! - Bullying and super toxic “colleagues” that are just sharks selling and managers will not do anything because at the end of the day if you make money you can bully people.
