    I worked at Mintel (More than a year)

    Pros

    I’m taking this time to write this review
    About Mintel and the people I knew
    I am going to tell you the story of me
    Hardworking and friendly Mintel employee

    At first, times were nice, I loved the job loads
    I was so happy I am lacking the words
    I made a few friends and thought it would be
    The perfect workplace for them and for me

    But then something’s changed, my manager thought
    That it was the right time to say me those words:
    “You are too friendly, you are too chill
    Your reputation will defo be killed”
    You can’t have your teas, you can’t have your breaks
    Sit here, don’t move, it’s all that it takes

    But I’m not at school, I do have my right
    To just have my break, on my lunch time decide
    So I thought it would be better for me to just leave
    No more negativity I want to receive

    The moral of story I am yet to convey
    I loved my time there but not my pay
    The message I am sending is just very clear
    Stop management nonsense and we will stay here!

    Cons

    Low pay (below market avarage)

    Advice to Management

    Take your time to listen to your employees and understand that they are humans too
