    Pros

    When working at TMP you are working with some of the best talent professionals in the industry. Great senior management team who are all really down to earth and engaged with everyone's work no matter what level - no hierarchy. We are all working towards the same goal. Free fruit on Mondays - sets you up for the week. Culture - working with lovely outgoing people. Lots of social events, internal and external. ...

    I have been working at TMP Worldwide UK

    Pros

    Lots of good people working hard for clients. Good TMs and (some) good Operations Managers.

    Cons

    Senior management hopeless and clueless. Bristol site just drifts aimlessly with staff having to follow meaningless and non-productive rituals. Everything is for show, with little substance.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to feedback and acting on it. Scratch beneath the surface of the facade and you will see some very BIG problems !!!

    I have been working at TMP Worldwide UK full-time

    Pros

    Some talented people do work here and there are some good brands on the client list.

    Cons

    The Bristol Delivery Centre has a 'Back to the Future' feel, just like the dire call centres of years gone by. Oppressive obsession with all the metrics that do not matter, with the occasional treat thrown in to keep up the show that it is a modern and forward thinking operation. Don't expect any career progression, unless you have the right social media connections. Management is so hopeless, it took them 9 months...

    Advice to Management

    None - giving any feedback that contradicts the views of management is met with bullying, so I'm sure that it would not be welcomed.

    Pros

    Some talented people work here.

    Cons

    I was hired into a new position with bold promises of support integrating my area of expertise with existing processes and teams. But there was a total lack of support from, and engagement with, most stakeholders - most notably my manager. No matter how many times I offered my expertise to stakeholders whose work was touched by my new role, my access was largely denied - often with hostility. No matter how many times...

    Good location in central London
