The staff canteen is fantastic and I liked that if you are a full time member of staff (ie not from a tempting agency) you get free uniform, a big plus!
The pay is pretty low, considering how demanding the job is. The work life balance was not good, the flexible hours mean sometimes you can do 6 days working straight with only one day off. If you have a family this is not a great place to work. The upper management request so much from their staff for such low pay.
Feels like a prison more than a job!
The people at ASOS are great, the company on the whole must be commended for encouraging a very casual and social atmosphere, and you dont usually feel the stress of work because of how comforatble your fellow employees make the work area. The benefits are amazing, you get a 40% discount on their brand, as well as various other extremely generous benefits.
The company is stuck at its original level of innovation and unable to move forward, the lack of explosive growth means that there are no major growth opportunities inside the company. As it is, the salaries are not among the best. There is also a micro-management culture creeping into the company slowly.
It feels like the company forgot what its like to be small and agile, and is starting to think and work like a large corporate instead.
Fair pay shouldn't be a benefit!
