    Pros

    State of the art canteen, improving benefits, career progression opportunities

    Could be more flexible, recoup of training fees, could improve work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Look at competitors and what they offer, better work life balance and more flexibility will retain staff

    I have been working at MHR full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I cannot believe some of the negative comments I have read on this site. Yes, I do work hard and put in extra work when required, and am even sometimes under a little pressure. I also met someone I did not get on with once, but is this not normal in almost every place of work. There seems to be some disgruntled people who have left MHR for one reason or another. I cannot speak for them, but I can comment on my experience....

    Cons

    Occasional lack of resource. Communication between employees and senior management is redundant in many areas. Lack of a company wide social experience for employees and their families, such as a summer or Christmas function.

    Advice to Management

    In my opinion, senior management need to engage with employees at a lower level more. I believe they should take the time to walk the departments and talk to employees every so often.

    I worked at MHR full-time

    Pros

    Nice Canteen Free Parking That is about it

    Cons

    Where to start..... Poor management, terrible dress code, outdated management, poor ways of delivering feedback. I've not gone to the other side on a system implementation, and we've had nothing but issue after issue. Web Recruitment doesn't work, it is not an ATS. The majority of clients are public sector who probably don't know any better. The Ui is terrible, outdated, updates are released which don't work. Which...

    Pros

    Crying is good for the soul

    Cons

    Management are bullies rather than leaders

    Advice to Management

    On a number of other reviews it mentions bullying of the staff by management and on each review the HR department replies reinforcing that they have a “Zero Bullying Ethos” and that “Something should have been mentioned to HR”. I know of at least 2 colleagues who reported the bullying and as a result were fired yet the bullies remain.

    Pros

    Nice country park next door to walk round at lunchtime Basic pay reasonable Some genuinely nice people to work with

    Cons

    Poor work life balance, MHR expect you to go the extra mile for them which is fair enough. However even if you give your all,criticism is never far away Spoken to like I was 5 years old on several occasions, unfortunately I came across a manager whose bullying management style made me feel particularly uneasy No kitchen, so you have to pay for tea and coffee Dry cleaning bill gets expensive!, as you are required...

    Thank you for your review. I’m pleased to hear about our people, but rather disturbed to hear about bullying, which as a business we do not tolerate. If you felt that was the case you should have raised the issue with HR and it would have been investigated. I wish you all the best ...
