Mission: Our vision is to become the worldwide leader in branded, location-based, family entertainment.
I worked at Merlin Entertainments full-time (More than 5 years)
Fair amount of freedom, ability to advance, controlled my own budget mostly. Salary was good for what I did. Benefits were good and there were a lot of good people at the lower ranks.
Incompetent managers in some positions. Tend to promote too quickly. The mix of animal and non-animal attractions creates upper level management that doesn't understand the differences between the two. Very incompetent, unprofessional and disrespectful HR directors in some positions, not all. Confusion among management and arguments between how to do things across countries.
Advice to Management
Communicate better and put your pride aside. Be willing to listen to new ideas.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments in October 2015.
The interview process was straight forward. You'll have to create and present on a solution to a problem they'll ask you. This was actually enjoyable and memorable. However, most of the questions asked were quite forgettable and of the standard interview variety.
