I recommend John Lewis listen to partners not tell them to make votes on Google plus real people real voices they are just making it ridiculas for people to speak and all of this ping pong back and forward in a department is confusing for partners and no more work gets done because there no time to do it and u have to be on to the next it's like a obstical course ridiculous is not the word so happy I left if I never had a job I never work for them ever again

It is partnership in some areas. Discussions, talking... yes. But rather typical company with hierarchy and some great ideas from the past that need tidying from dust.
