    I worked at Johnson Matthey full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Invaluable experience gained whilst I was here thanks to a fantastic manager. Lots of opportunities when given the right leader and lots of good intentions from the company on improving engagement, career opportunities and development.

    Cons

    Pay was not always equal or fair in comparison to external market and colleagues. Lots of significant organisational changes regularly which wasn’t always understood

    Advice to Management

    Change is great and the communication when I left was the best it had ever been so continue to improve the communication of ‘why’ the changes are happening.

    I have been working at Johnson Matthey full-time

    Pros

    The people make it a great place to work. From a practical perspective there is an excellent pension, share scheme and other benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of talent retention in some areas, management is made up of people who aren’t the right people for the job, they were just in the right place at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on talent retention, rather than acquisition.
