    I have been working at Morgan McKinley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    An office filled with great people. It seems almost impossible to find the same great feel elsewhere

    Cons

    Progression can take a lot of time, but the ball rolls fast once you get to that stage

    Cons

    Benefits are tight but that's just the industry.

    I have been working at Morgan McKinley full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to move from Germany to Dublin Chance to work onsite Google

    Cons

    Dont expect them to be your friends. Every problem you have in Dublin is your problem. Speak up for yourself and dont believe anything they tell you. That s business.

    Advice to Management

    Transfering the salary to German bank accounts is better than sending cheques for an old fashioned bank like bank of Ireland

    Pros

    Honestly I can not say enough good things about this Agency. Having come from a smaller agency, with stressful metrics, Morgan McKinley is a breath of fresh air. I can confidently say Morgan McKinley are miles ahead of the market: locking down PSLs with top clients, utilising extensive sourcing tools and overall are a really successful business. They treat their staff as the number one priority and everyone from... Management to Directors are approachable, open to feedback and involved in office banter. There are so many opportunities & promotions offered once you have a foot in the door as well as global teams worldwide to join once you have proven yourself in a current role/location.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Morgan McKinley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great for graduates, positive environment on some teams. Good exposure to clients, very little business development which gives the opportunity to achieve success quickly. Upbeat social environment and great parties

    Cons

    Abnormally high turnover from senior management down to the bottom. Growth plans are high yet the core of their business gets lost in the process. Company politics are the biggest problem, promotions are handed out loosely and reactively, often when consultants are not capable and cannot handle the pressure put on them by directors. Consultants and senior management disappear on leave and don’t return with unclear... explanations creating a serious lack of transparency and fear of instability. A lot of faith put into new management which has resulted in almost whole teams being wiped out within a year.

    Advice to Management

    Address the turnover, identity problems between consultants and management quicker and more openly. Spend less money on renting out expensive venues and focus those resources on retaining consultants and training those in management.

    I worked at Morgan McKinley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Weekday only, helped to give me the experience for administration

    Cons

    Monthly pay, bad management, awful working environment, area manager didn't care. I worked in one of their sites near cork city, high turnover of staff due to bad management

    Advice to Management

    Look after your staff better and you wouldn't have such a high turn around.
