    I have been working at Wiggle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun relaxed culture in a business that’s leading big change in the industry, great product to try, nice tech office set up

    Cons

    So much change going on it’s hard to keep up sometimes, IT issues make it hard sometimes to do simple things, but this are apparently being worked on

    Pros

    Easy work, keeps you fit, friendly colleagues

    Cons

    I have worked at Wiggle for over 2 years and i have to say it is the WORST company i have ever worked for, it duped me and a lot of other colleagues into leaving other similar jobs with promises of progression, soon after start date these promises were broken one by one until the company became just another warehouse op job, some of us left companies that were straight up in the way that there was no progression but paid well, so i took a drop in pay to work for wiggle, worst decision of my life, the only progression available is by sleeping with management, as horrible as that sounds in this day of age but its fact, the most recent promotions in house 3 out of 4 were sleeping with a shift manager (known fact) these concerns were raised by about 30 colleagues in an open letter to higher management but this fell on deaf ears, there is ritual bullying of members of staff by team leaders and shift managers. Only apply if you have a thick skin, the shift managers and team leaders are terrible and cannot run a bath never mind a massive company such as Wiggle. I am only still here as i know the job and it pays my bills until i find something else.

    Advice to Management

    Recognise ability when it is right in front of your eyes and not promote just because of affairs, pay better and also send your shift managers and team leaders on management courses on how to speak to staff.

    I have been working at Wiggle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    lots of opportunites to progress its not all about the brains its who you know and what you do

    Cons

    no recognition for hardworkers they never get noticed

    Advice to Management

    team leaders/managers need to open their blinders and recognise the grafters from the time wasters. hard workers are the first to be pulled up. no good time wasters get away with murder

    I have been working at Wiggle full-time

    Pros

    The employees want to help each other.

    Cons

    The company has made large acquisitions but does not know what to do with them. No work has been done on culture between the larger group so the integration has not landed. There is no direction and forward momentum and the hard work is not recognized as there is no progress on horrifically low pay. The place is leaking talented people because they do not care for them and it will get worse.

    The HR team are useless, in one case they sanctioned an employee and but refused to tell them why, if that ever got to a tribunal they would be dead in the water.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your staff promote from with in, train people develop them and show then care and respect.

    Pros

    Great, positive, relaxed working environment. The office is chilled, fun and looks nice. Great amenities, and perks!

    Cons

    At the moment, it's a small office, not enough desks, but this is being addressed, and we know we're moving into a bigger office in 6 weeks time.

    Advice to Management

    More vegan choices in the free coffee and snacks are.

    Pros

    Amazing friends I made there

    Cons

    Team leaders are the worst....dont care about your health only the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    team leaders and shift managers need to be sorted out due to ignorance of risk assessments and medical issue. Also hateful comments towards colleagues if they make the slightest mistake. Didnt feel comfortable with an injury because it would be ignored and they would force you to do the task anyway!!
