Facilities Coordinator in Leeds, West Yorkshire
Loved my team but the company is going downhillI absolutely loved the team of people I worked with but senior management were making changes to how the (very successful) team worked and not including the team in discussions. I feel like the company overall doesn't care about it's employees.
Marketing Executive in Leeds
Really Enjoyed my time thereWorked at MPS for over 7 years. Lobed my time there and team were great. Reluctantly left due to salary lower than market average and no room for movement.
Administrator in Leeds, West Yorkshire
Great benefits, horrible peopleSo much potential but completely archaic, and run old-school, horrible culture amongst cliquey managers, gossip and bullying with no repercussions. Staff weren't valued and were let go after years of service for asking for change in hours to accommodate studying, etc. Employees stressed under pressure, and having to take work home with them too. Feedback ignored, and bad business decisions from higher up. Massively underpayed for the work expected.
Legal assistant in London, Greater London
Sinking ship with unqualified staff at the helmI did a stint in the legal department and had two managers. One was a qualified lawyer and the other had no legal qualification, was out of her depth with trying to train graduates but was very good at showing up to her zoom meetings with the legal assistants wearing a mangey old dressing gown and unkempt appearance (we must have been interrupting her watching daytime television programmes). When I joined there were problems with IT setting up the equipment, the legal department were using the antiquated CRM for their cases and every week people ended up leaving. I stayed for some experience but with both managers at loggerheads with each other and unable to co-ordinate urgent case matters together causing confusion and dismorale. There was no proper training. and you ended up with your own training notes which was difficult with remote working. My advice for management is if you're to employ staff make sure they have the relevant qualifications otherwise you're wasting people's time and skills. This might be a decent organisation to join in 4-5 years time but with a hefty amount of people leaving I wasn't going to hang around and got a better role with structure.
Claims Assistant in London
Decent pay and good trainingMPS are really big on welfare and do look after their employees. The pay is decent and there is room for development and always opportunities to learn. You get good training and the job is varied and busy. I’d recommend it as a place to work if you’re proactive and enjoy being busy.
