Interesting place to work, lots of potential

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The company has gone through a few different changes in recent years, including restructuring and redundancy. However, usually a place of long tenure. Pay could be commensurate with COL - albeit it meeting the ‘Living wage”. Staff are friendly. Lacking development & mentoring opportunities to retain and nurture talent in certain areas of the organisation.

Could do better

Company looks good on paper but in reality it's not all that. When I started staff morale was at an all time low with a high turnover of staff, issues with senior management, cliquey workforce in certain departments and insufficient wages. Training was hit and miss (read and sign this) and whilst I thought I was going to be taught how to run a machine I was mearly a custodian when it ran. Reason I left tho was economics. High fuel costs and distance travelled wasn't worth the hourly wage. Company has an awful lot of potential but needs a whole new mindset to work and address why so many staff leave.

Used to be great place to work

I started at this company many years ago so my opinion is from my experience to the years back. It used to be a really great place to work with good salary, overtimes since last year, after many changes like shifts pattern, salary or positions this place is NOT anymore like used to be.

Bad management and training

Waited 2 years to get a contract, different trainers telling you different things, managers too scared to reprimand employees, you're ok if your face fits!!! Pay not great either.

Cons

Fun Workplace

It is very good enviroment with professional trainers, i learned a lot of things like operating the machines and how to build the required devices.The hardest part is when you need to speed up and you do not have the experience to go fast and build good devices at the same time. I enjoyed alot this job because of the good people in there that makes your days better.

Pros

Free Coffe, Understanding of Trainers and Professional Management

Cons

Short breaks, some trainers do not train you correctly, forbidden languages, only english, sometimes they want the impossible from you

Great company to work for

A great company to work for. A relatively small company but a great friendly atmosphere at work. There are never many issues here at work and any issues tend to be resolved in a quick efficient manor

rewarding place of work

Owyn mumfords is a family run business which demonstrates an ongoing care for it's employees. The staff were well treated and respected and this showed in the cohesiveness of the teams. I only left as I am unable to work rotational shifts.

Pros

Flexible shifts.

Cons

working 4 on 4 off routine would seriously impact my life/work balance.
