    I have been working at Merlin Entertainments full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is room to grow in the company if you are willing to move. The benefits are great, and you get a lot of perks.

    Cons

    Bad management, no accountability, employee turnaround is ridiculous, the salary is not competitive, and the "cost of living" raises are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Positive reinforcement is a good thing. Instead of telling your employees that they aren't doing anything right, tell them what they are doing that is good. Also, make your pay more competitive.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I was met with 2 white people in an all white room, they pretty much made me feel uncomfortable and unwelcomed. The offices were bland and gray, and they were asking me the same questions over and over as if they didn't believe I was telling the truth. It seems as though only robots work in the corporate office of this company.
