    I worked at Musgrave Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly chaps and good management.

    Cons

    Needy on targets which is impossible to do if you get 1-2 picks per 3-4 minutes with an L.L.O.P. There has to be a different time variation calculator.

    Advice to Management

    Show more empathy, that would be it.

    I worked at Musgrave Group full-time

    Pros

    Hours were very good but I think that was because we were understaffed.

    Cons

    Very poor management, especially when it came to employee relations and work life balance. Asked for time off a month in advance and HR laughed in my face.

    I have been working at Musgrave Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good canteen; non management staff are lovely; working hours are good

    Cons

    Poor management; high staff turnover; below industry salary and benefits; no career opportunities; favoritism; lots of conflicting goals and agendas between departments

    Advice to Management

    Treat people fairly and with respect. HR need to properly engage with staff and not be just nodding dogs. Sticking a few posters and leaflets up around the place doesn't make a workplace a good one.
