        No Opinion of CEO

        I worked at M&G full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Good work life balance forward thinking organisation in terms of technology

        Cons

        Some managers are very set in their ways and continue to operate in very traditional project management ways, reluctant to move with the times. A lot of the teams work in silos, communication is not clear. Compensation needs to be in line with the work being done and it isn't

        Advice to Management

        Listen to your direct reports, take their concerns into consideration

        Negative Outlook
        No Opinion of CEO

        I have been working at M&G full-time for more than 8 years

        Pros

        New office, casual dress and Agile working within the office and at home. Pleasant colleagues. Approachable management for work queries. Aside from a pretty low morale, the culture is nice and has developed quickly, a bigger push on bringing the 'whole you' to work with culture and gender groups being set up.

        Cons

        Uncertainty - redundancies and demerger, feels like we're being packaged up to be sold off. Changes in title and more work (a promotion) without being compensated; not uncommon here. Diligent staff can be taken for granted and pick up slack for other staff for the long term; leads to an increase in the number of staff being signed off with stress due to high workload and a lower morale. Communication on important issues...

        Advice to Management

        Show the hard working and valuable staff that they are truly valued and reflect this in their wages. Listen to concerns and most importantly...communicate! The rumour mill is a dangerous thing.
