What Employees Say
I have been working at MHR full-time for more than 3 years
I cannot believe some of the negative comments I have read on this site. Yes, I do work hard and put in extra work when required, and am even sometimes under a little pressure. I also met someone I... did not get on with once, but is this not normal in almost every place of work. There seems to be some disgruntled people who have left MHR for one reason or another. I cannot speak for them, but I can comment on my experience. In my 3 years of working at MHR, I have been promoted twice and had three pay rises. I work alongside some of the most talented people I have ever met. I have requested, attended and passed exams for two career training courses, which the company has paid for in full, along with my hotel, food and travel expenses. I have also attended countless internal courses organised by our fantastic Training Department. My meals here are discounted and I don't have any car parking costs, which potentially saves me hundreds of pounds every month. I consider myself fortunate that I get a car allowance and above average pension contributions paid for me. I am proud to wear a suit and tie every day, in my modern heated/air conditioned office using the most up to date technology available. MHR is always expanding, its innovative and our products are at the cutting edge of technology. I choose my office hours, meaning I can start early, so I get home before 5.30pm almost every evening to have dinner with my young family and spend quality time with them. If you are talented, hard working and willing to learn, (and dress smartly) then MHR is a great place to work. If your not, it's not.
Occasional lack of resource. Communication between employees and senior management is redundant in many areas. Lack of a company wide social experience for employees and their families, such as a... summer or Christmas function.
Advice to Management
In my opinion, senior management need to engage with employees at a lower level more. I believe they should take the time to walk the departments and talk to employees every so often.
I have been working at Totemic full-time for less than a year
Everyone is very friendly, given more than adequate time to settle in and acclimatize. Brilliant community spirit. Work is interesting and engaging - time passes quickly. Plenty of opportunites to... learn, grow and develop with fantastic support from management and colleagues. Training is comprehensive. Staff are compassionate and empathetic towards each other which creates an amazing work environment. Flexible hours. A fair contract that protects both employees and management equally. Working at Totemic, it's clear the aim is to help people, which is reflected in the work done and company ethos. Each department within the company has it's own roles and workload but we all interact to accomplish the 'end-goal' which is helping people in debt move on with their lives. Management genuinely works hard to engage employees, support team-building and promote the importance of a good work-life balance and put excellent procedures in place to enforce these values, treating staff as human beings, not human resources. Free on-site parking. On-site cafeteria with healthy, fresh food, all more than reasonably priced. Fried breakfast in the mornings, roast dinner on Wednesdays and free fruit available to all staff. Relaxed dress code. Free wifi! Free tea and coffee are also available. Employee health plan that covers mental health and an abundance of other potential issues, from debt advice to childcare support. Staff are well rewarded for hard work. Also very impressed with the consideration Totemic takes towards environmental issues, legitimately trying to help do their bit for the cause and encouraging staff to follow suit.
