There are varying opinions across the departments, but for me in HR, I feel that it was a great place to kickstart my career. My supervisors were all adamant on my goals and supported my projects. I really enjoyed working at DFS and with the people I have encountered. However, like I said in the beginning of this review, this also made progress a bit slow (in terms of the succession of my projects).
Convenient, teamwork, compensation, flexibility, work travel
Office politics, management (some not all)
Best part of working for DFS is how culturally diverse it is. From internal amongst the team, with so many countries represented. To whom you work with externally with stores worldwide, vendors, or supply chain partners. Very fast paced environment, quite challenging but it's never boring. Being able to travel for work around the world made the job better than most. Salary compensation was top notch, the health care was mediocre at best. Some excellent, intelligent management and some mediocre ones.
Colleagues are generally quite nice and smart in general. Top management is mostly French, you have to bear the cultural difference. Company’s direction and decision are always not transparent. Loyalty is not honoured in this company. Staff discount and sale are attractive. Benefits are ok. Prospect of retail is getting dull recently, you might expect so many uncertainties of your role. Career path could be unclear and unstable.
Nice colleagues; MNC
Cultural difference and gap with top management
DFS group has great promotional practices, very fairly auditing-system. It's a international company, which can add vivid colour to your resume. The colleagues of mine is around 40 years old, so, it's not a heavy job environment, suits for women.
This is a good place to start your career, the team is supportive and collaborative. However there is limited opportunity to get job advancement and promotion as the organizational structure is quite hierarchical - unless your boss get promoted / quit, there is rarely a way for you to get promoted.
