    I have been working at Marshalls plc - UK full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The Organisation is constantly changing and adapting both to new technologies and new ways of working. Marshalls likes to promote from within to retain product knowledge and competitive advantage so there are many opportunities to grow with the business for the right individual, and not just in your specialist area, the door really is open for you to try new things.

    Cons

    Better communication across the smaller business areas wouldn't be a bad thing.

    Pros

    Advice to Management

    Paying workers excellent money does not give you the right to treat them as meat. Management have monopolised the positions of power leaving the operators trapped with issues they cannot raise for fear of being dismissed though cloak and dagger reports from management. Bullying is rife with the managment allowing it if it suits the situation to push someone to leave. All in all by looking at the reviews from years past...

    Pros

    Good leadership who are accessible and have a focus on growth and continuous improvement. A long heritage in the brand and still much pride taken in the business by employees at all levels. Great bunch of people to work with across all the sites.

    Need to continue to improve in the areas of diversity/support for working parents as do most companies in this industry.

    I have been working at Marshalls plc - UK

    Pros

    Job has good wages and that's it

    Cons

    Worked for many years and Manager has a ring of protection that allows himself to get away with all sorts of bad stuff against staff to the point I'm heading right out of a job... HR department and some senior management all players in the plot against me. Family stressed to the max ...

    Advice to Management

    Wake up to the wrong people in charge Mr Marshalls and restore the good name it once had over 15 years ago. Too late for me as have to leave !!!!Works mangers fabricating lies against me ....stressed out to the max,,,hey all that said we make a good slab and pavier blocks are top class. If I could score a zero I would for senior management

    Pros

    Very friendly and good team atmosphere. Marshalls feels like a good place to be at the moment with the outlook looking positive. Best Companies "Ones to watch" and also named as a Super Brand again which is good.

    Cons

    The business is changing with a new CEO in place, so any cons appear to be disappearing which is good.

    Advice to Management

    As expected in large organisations we could be smarter in terms of standardising some policies and procedures.
