    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 as long as they're smart), which is a pleasant thing. You get a day off for your birthday, in addition to holiday policy.

    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.

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

    Pros

    - good stepping stone to build experience in industry - free shuttle bus from Cornbrook tram stop to the office - nice food in canteen - making changes in office amenities, ie. new coffee machine and free snacks and drinks in fridge - day off on birthday - gym on-site

    Cons

    - campaigns often lose purpose after getting passed around different teams with zero communication and the final result very rarely delivers what it was intended to - too many cooks wanting to 'improve' everything without listening to the initial brief. - poor morale in office- e.g. regular rude emails from management saying the team isn't good enough, working hard enough, when profits aren't as big as they'd like... - management works from abroad and there is next to zero team spirit, often feel out of the loop and no longer engaged with what is going on. - some talented people are dismissed for little reason, while others remain in roles they are incapable of doing - why? - 'Head of' titles handed out like sweets, more people in the management meetings than general staff - some extremely backwards comments in the office

    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 the day away from the second they enter the building. Far too many incompetent people creating more work and demotivating the teams to cause stress and unhappiness.

    Pros

    Great building and worksite Great training Beautiful canteen food

    Cons

    Extremely tight laced and uptight Expected to work over time without pay - "I will tell you when you can go home" (is this primary school?) Constant abuse from customers Terrible guidelines for handling situations where you cannot discuss something - no clear guidance at all. Lack of empathy from Management No phones allowed in anywhere but the canteen - where you cannot get reception so you're forced to connect to wifi where you are monitored

    I worked at TMG full-time

    Pros

    I liked my team.

    Cons

    - The parking is a joke. Unless you're in a position of power/£££ you won't get a space from Monday - Thursday. - Canteen is so overpriced - Directors look at you like you're a piece of turd on their shoes. Incredibly rude staff. - Strong culture of ruling by fear/shifting the blame to someone else - Favouritism is rife though so if your face fits you'll be fine. Or, if you're a sociopath.
