    I have been working at Lidl full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    above average salary Staff discount Opportunity to progress Attractive benefits package Fast pace and rapid expansion means always new challenges A culture of trust exists 35 days holiday p.a.

    Cons

    47.5 hours per week, can put some strain on work/home life balance. Lots of changes to processes on a frequent basis makes it hard to keep up.

    Advice to Management
