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

    Pros

    Some of the other employees were very friendly. The head of department was a nice guy as well but unfortunately the others just seem nice and friendly.

    Cons

    Really bad salary and the stated reasons make you believe they think their employees are really stupid. There are a lot of lies they want you to forward to the visitors. Critique is something they can't take and are not willing to take, no matter if it's about work conditions or safety of the visitors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your employees not for granted and if there are safety concerns, take those seriously.

    I have been working at Merlin Entertainments

    Pros

    Can be a fun job when the flow is steady, it feels good to make a customer's day, good for a starting job for someone with no experience, good introduction to a large company.

    Cons

    Employees weren't trained well enough before opening, managerial hierarchy is very confusing (not really clear who to report to), not too many opportunities for advancement so far, management can be disorganized, few incentives, obvious favoritism and bias, pay isn't great for what we have to put up with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This could really be a great branch of Merlin Entertainments if these kinks were worked out. Once we pass the probation period I think we'll see an improvement and more coherency from the general manager right down.

    No opinion of CEO
