    Approves of CEO

    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

    Rome wasn’t built in a day, be careful not to implement new ideas and changes all at once.

    I worked at Lidl full-time

    Pros

    - Nice office space - Company contributes well to community

    Cons

    - hardly any training when starting at the company. No information on filing systems, branding or requirements - Quiet office - conversation is not encouraged among team members which affects brainstorming and creativity - In-house printers are awful to use - No interest in your development unless you're in a lead position or aspire to be - Communication between managers and team leads is non existent - Teams are too small for the workload

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and put more time into training, especially when employees start at the company.
