    I have been working at Marshalls plc - UK full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Marshalls is a very successful business with a good heart. It's starting to up its game on its approach to people practices. I find the leadership team to be very approachable and human. I joined the business in January 2019 and my first impressions are really positive.

    Cons

    The structure of the business seems a bit complex and takes some time to get use to.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and remember that the people at Marshalls make all the difference!

    I have been working at Marshalls plc - UK part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company is performing well. Well known brand in the industry with lots of expertise and great customers. Career opportunities for those who want them. Very friendly environment with people who really care about doing a good job.

    Cons

    Benefits not as high as in some organisations although there have been recent improvements.

    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

    A good wage and that is all

    Cons

    Health both mentally and phisically

    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 this trend does not seem to be changing. For a company that promotes the charity MIND for mental awareness I find this insulting on behalf of the charity. Another clever ploy to deceive the outsider that all is ok.

    Sad to see a company with such a high reputation treat the heart (operative) of the product so badly. The most frustrating is productitivity and quality could be better but with uncapable managment using operatives as cannon fodder to protect their own job things will never change.

    My advice is unless you know the people you need to know, don’t work there.

    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.

    Cons

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

    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

    Friendly Office and colleagues in Chertsey. Good Boss, Nice rapport with the clients and outside contractors. Good Pension Scheme, okay wages

    Head Office are useless for guidance and help, to many people at head office have the attitude of, that is not my job, or get someone else to do it.

    Listen to staff you employ.

    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.
