    Pros

    Morgan Hunt has a good reputation in the public sector
    There are a handful of excellent, respectable consultants to look up to

    Cons

    Where to start.
    The company bangs on about its values, but most of the staff don't display any -
    constant 'water cooler' gossip and managers are rude about team members in meetings. Quite possibly the least professional management team I've come across.

    Rather than getting rid of these people, teams are just restructured which just moves the problem somewhere else.

    As such, there is incredibly poor morale amongst corporate services with many looking to leave or have left.

    The marketing team don't do anything to help support sales team other than managing advert spend - they didn't run a single campaign to support the division in my time there.

    Dreadful commission structure

    Dreadful basic salaries

    No notable benefits

    Advice to Management

    Review your workforce and remove the unprofessional people if you really wish to implement your values and have a company where people look forward to coming to work

    Pros

    Respected name in the market with great progression. Understanding board of directors that provide you with support to be successful (special mentions to Chris & Frazier).

    Great teamwork always putting a team first, ahead of personal success. A professional and respectful organisation from front to back office that values and encourages its employees.

    There are always company wide events, MD addresses, seasonal parties, weekly in house competitions and a real feel for teamwork and fun!

    Cons

    Honestly there are none, this could change but all good at the moment.

    Pros

    Easy placement. Large agency. There are many departments to suit the needs f applicants.

    Cons

    Account Managers rarely return calls. Workers are severely underpaid. Your concerns will go unheeded. Account Managers are only solicitous when it benefits them.

    Pros

    Morgan Hunt are a very good company to work for.

    They have supported me with development within the company and furthered my skills. Senior members of staff have been approachable and easy to talk to should I have had any problems, there is a very welcoming environment within the office.

    Cons

    Keeping managers well informed of the training of new employees and what it entails, to allow them to guide and offer support should the employee need it.

    Advice to Management

    Promote staff within the company, giving them opportunities they may be unaware of. maintaining a general catch up with employees to manage work load and expectations.

    I have been working at Morgan Hunt full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have benefited from the fantastic opportunities the company has given me over the years. I am one of several staff who has done 10 years plus service and I have truly loved the journey the company has taken me on. They have shown belief in me, supported me with a training/development programme and they have rewarded my performance whether that be remuneration, bonus or promotion. They recognise potential and they like to promote within, the management team, senior management team and leadership team are testament to this. It is a fun place to work, quarterly team nights out, company social events, awards ceremonies and lavish Christmas parties to note. Work life balance is great the hours are good, the company has done a lot to address this to ensure they are not burning out their staff with unsociable hours. In summary, it’s a unique place that has something special. If you are dedicated and have the ability, you will prosper at Morgan Hunt.

    Cons

    Top biller's do not always make the best managers, not all cases but in some cases, they can leave something to be desired when it comes leadership and management. More support on desk for their staff is required to better support company wide training and development programme delivered by the talent team.

    Advice to Management

    Promoting within is great but I also think some of the best senior recruits in recent years have come with external experience. So, it is about having a better balance between external experience that gives a different perspective and the long serving staff that have climbed the ladder.
