    I have been working at TMG full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Progressive place to work, good knowledgeable and capable staff, good management and progression opportunities. Facilities on site good too, well equipped gym with free PT services, good support for cyclists, canteen food good, prices reasonable, staff very friendly. CEO takes time to know who everyone is and is approachable. Currently the dress policy is smart casual (and that can mean t-shirts, jeans and trainers...

    Cons

    Possibly not for everyone; some people don't seem to fit in, but if you do it's a great place to work. Can be high pressure sometimes, but that's work for you. Pension is only OK. You don't start with many holidays but they can be built up with service, and you can buy or sell a week per annum.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, keep listening to your staff.

    I worked at TMG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In depth training into the role Site facilities such as canteen or on site 'free' gym

    Cons

    Bullying and 'if your face doesnt fit' culture among the managers Unrealistic targets/KPIs Sexism

    Advice to Management

    Take a long hard at every area of the business, and more specifically the managers you have hired to run these teams. There's definitely a bullying and 'if you face doesnt fit' culture at TMG/Gregory Pennington and when I left your company I literally felt relived that I didn't ever have to step foot on that site again. The whole team 'lets pick a call and rip apart training' doesn't work, the 1 hour + calls with customers...

    I worked at TMG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Onsite Gym and Canteen. But mostly using as a stepping stone to progression elsewhere and knowing what culture you sure as hell don't ever want to be in again!!!

    Cons

    No progression, unless you are willing to suck up to management and not have your own opinions or ideas. Terrible culture. Management speak to employees like trash, fundamental issues regarding treatment of staff, quite clear most of them do not have people skills for these roles. High turnover of staff (says a lot). General feel of negative vibes throughout the offices, whether that be stress or generally people wishing...

    Advice to Management

    Try working as a team, getting some people skills and motivating the teams, get rid of the dead wood rather than letting them pull the team down and reward and progress the competent and hard workers.
