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

    Pros

    Everyone cries in the same boat together. We soak up our misery with "popcorn Wednesday" and "beer o'clock" on Fridays.

    Cons

    Overworked would be an understatement. Members of staff would have panic-attacks and breakdowns due to the amount of pressure they're put under. Once you're finally promoted they drop multiple jobs on you which means you're doing overtime without pay without a choice. Promotion never means a pay rise either and the pay is awful enough. Promised promotions are frequently snatched away. No praise for entry level roles, they're often looked down upon. Don't do an apprenticeship there. They won't give you a chance to complete it and it's just an excuse for them to get more money from the government. No management actually cares about your progression.
