    I worked at Merlin Entertainments full-time (more than a year)


    Lots of opportunity to move up in the company, and lots of opportunity for training and skill development, and the majority of the people you meet are wonderful.


    Work-life balance is near impossible, especially at the low/middle management level. I know everyone else has mentioned the pay, but I never minded the low pay as long as I was treated decently. I was handed work way above my pay grade with no instruction, did my best with it, then was blamed when it didn't work out 100% perfectly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a site is losing several of its managers over very few months, consider sending someone out to investigate.
