    I have been working at Mouchel Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    family feel and interesting varied work

    Cons

    when people have left they've not been replaced, therefore pressure on team but allows you to take on more responsibility (pro and con).
    Con - uncertainty since take over

    Advice to Management

    Go to the "shop" floor and talk to the staff of all levels. To understand what they do, the pressures they face, what we do well and what we can improve. it's always nice for staff particular lower down the management chain to have interaction with senior management.

    Pros

    Great oppurtunity to grow, working in a well organized environment and being supported adequately. The company is keen to support your professional development through your chartered application.

    Cons

    Having had a look around, I think that salary for my role are quite under the average. Nothing else to complain about.

    I worked at Mouchel Group full-time

    Pros

    Good working environment and fantastic geological and water teams.

    Cons

    Senior management & HR were completely clueless. Company had no set strategy and basically running the company like a fish and chip stall. No surprise it made staff redundant 5 or 6 times, struck off the stock market, sold,resold ,sold ,resold 3 times. Bought by Kier, Sold by Kier, bought by WSP...who's next... POOR Management.

    Advice to Management

    Sack all....

    I worked at Mouchel Group full-time

    Pros

    As with all companies, there were some good people working there doing a great job. The remuneration package was fine.

    Cons

    The most 'political' place I've ever worked. I felt that everyone was constantly watching their own back or finger pointing rather than getting on with the job! Disruptive organisational changes didn't help and employees lacked feeling of a company identity or culture

    Advice to Management

    Give your staff some feel of corporate identity, job stability and security. Then they will do a great job for you.
