I have been working at Merlin Entertainments

Pros

Fairness to employees
Hard work is reconized and rewarded
Decent starting pay
Supervisors communicate well with their employees
Job advancement is fairly easy if you are a hard worker

Cons

Re-active rather then proactive
Difficult to get hired on full-time
Favoritism to certain employees is common
Lack of set positions (i.e. sous cook, grill master, ect.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't play favorites. Just because you hang out after work, doesn't mean they deserve all the rewards. Put out important information in a better way rather then just word of mouth.

    I worked at Merlin Entertainments as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    young atmosphere, lots of opportunities to finish early over quiet periods, social.

    Cons

    Underpaid, It would be better to have a day off "sick" rather than be 5 minutes late, very clicky, if you don't know anyone you can be made to feel like an outsider. Management didn't always know what they were doing. Favoritism

    Get rid of the 0 hour contracts and then people will stay, i only left because i wanted proper hours.
