    I have been working at Mouchel Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Strong leadership has turned company around. Better prospects and oportunities working across different markets.

    Benefits are ok and some great people in the business

    Cons

    Salaries have been stagnant too long

    Fixated on processes and controls and too little freedom to develop new ideas.

    Not unique, but high expectations in terms of output of work and time commitment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully all employeed will benefit from the success of the business

    I worked at Mouchel Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You were always praised and appreciated. Very professional staff and attitude of the company. Taught be loads of new things and greatly expanded my knowledge. Gave me loads of varied responsibility and increased greatly my skills and confidence.

    Cons

    Die to the contract with the council, too many redundancies and hit hard by localauthority cutbacks which Mouchel had no real control over. Policies and associated paperwork could be too beurocratic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much - streamline policies and policy documents.

    Some fantastic people, unfortunately led by a senior management team that none of the staff trust.

    Employees are not well looked after. No training and not a single pay rise in three years.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Mouchel Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The experience gained is good.

    Cons

    Motivation is gradually eroded as the company refuses to invest in their employees or provide any sort of incentive (pay rise or benefits worth having). The company also has a proven record of getting rid of skilled staff and replacing them with poorly paid graduates and expects the same quality of work provided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your staff better than you do. Provide much needed training for your employees. Do not replace skilled staff with graduates and expect the same quality of work.
