Managers are annoying and they give yh a tonne of work to do without any help. The only good thing is incentives with pay. They are always under pressure and many many complaints from customers

If you haven’t already noticed with the other reviews there is a massive difference on how production and office staff/managers get treated here. Don’t apply for a production job unless you like being treated like something on the bottom of a managers boot. The only thing that’s stops me from leaving is I need the job and the people I work with are great but the place is running like a circus
Pros
Lol
Cons
Too many

Legal & General is a large corporate organisation with a similar culture to other large corporate FS brands. The federated structure made stakeholder management and decision making a challenge, but leadership generally was focused on achieving the best results together.
Pros
Some friendly people and belief in the brand and the values.
Cons
Structure of the Group could be divisive.

A truly toxic factory to work in ,avoid at all costs . Bullying, poor health and safety and numerous managers in key roles that lack real expertise to carry out their roles.

I really like working for Legal & General! At interview I was told that no two days would ever be the same and they were absolutely right! It can be challenging at times, but if you are like me and thrive in a busy, fast paced environment then this is the business for you. Everyone I work with is really committed to making a difference and that is so refreshing to see. I cannot lie, there are days when we work later than we would like but I have a great Manager who really supports me and what I am trying to achieve so makes it all worth while. The bit I love most are the people, we do work hard but regularly go out and have different social activities to let our hair down. There are improvements that can be made, no doubt every business is the same, but it does seem that the company really do take feedback on board and do want to make changes for the better.

Forward looking company with great ideas and a plan to help solve the countries housing shortage, delivering affordable houses. Friendly relaxed atmosphere Good pay with some great additional benefits Facilities are good, canteen is great Communication is improving throughout the business with monthly company briefings Recruitment and Induction process was well conducted, and provided a great overview of the company Still has the feel of a start up so there is always lots to do, but opportunities to use own initiative to contribute

Poor company to work for with no opportunities for progression or even a decent salary. The management team are draconian and prey on their staff to constantly trip them up rather than actually help them with their jobs

L&G is an excellent company to work for, encouraging to work life balance and personal development. However, advancement in job is not easy and the salary is not great but good.

L&G is a busy place but a friendly atmosphere and good people. It is a hard job but is paid fairly well in consideration with the other workplaces in the industry

Working @ Legal & General MH is interesting and rewarding, and a great chance to be part of a bigger movement in UK housing development. The culture of teamwork is good, however some of the systems and procedures are not quick enough for the pace of change within the factory. The best part of the job is working in varied teams with people from different backgrounds and experiences to solve problems and develop improvements.

If you get a black hat or a red hat expect car allowances and gifts of champagne. If you are unlucky enough to get a yellow hat you are treated like one of many just a number if you work hard learn all the jobs and get an internal promotion to a blue hat expect another blue hat who’s come straight in from farmfoods or Saab to be on a good 10 grand more then you but only if they lack any experience at all they like that here

Simply a robotic job. I also have a few personal gripes but I'll base that on individuals. You MUST say scripted word s. Word for word. No freedom to be yourself with customer. Constant clock watching by staff to make sure your back from your break on time etc. A very basic mundane no frills job. I'm avoiding adding emotion to this. Personally, it wasn't for me. To date I'm owed money by the company

Any new start up is always going to have a number of challenges - and LGMH is no different. Saying this the business is really trying to achieve something hugely ambitious and finding its feet can sometimes be difficult. I have been in the business for over a year and have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. The people I work with are really passionate about making a difference and the environment is busy and dynamic. Everyone in the business received a lovely Christmas hamper for their hard work, as well as regular Modular Hero awards and the monthly briefings to recognise people's hard work and skill. I have worked in a number of manufacturing environments and some of things I have seen here are really positive in comparison. It is a tough place to work at times, with expectations really high so will suit people that are highly motivated to pushing the boundaries within their area of expertise. If you have fixed visions on the way things work, this place will not be the right fit and you will find it frustrating.
Pros
Great perople, excellent benefits including share scheme for all employees, good holiday entitlement and salary
Cons
In its early stages so some of the progression and development is not yet mature

This could be a good place to work . Unfortunately there are 2 teams here production and office staff . And office staff are treat differently to production . Production undervalued office staff overvalued. Not all office staff are bad but majority look down there nose at the production employees . Needs to change quickly.

My time at legal & general was enjoyable. All my team and the rest of the floor on Mature Savings were brilliant. I would definitely reccomend this company as a place to work.

Lies from day 1, they say they're collaborative and purposeful which couldn't be more wrong, if you work in production you are basically scum, office staff get given expensive champagne for doing there job whilst production staff get nothing for working hard, HR are non existent and live in dream land they also dont care about production staff, the training is a joke.
