Poor staff engagement, not equal opportunities
Administrator (Former Employee) – Watford, Hertfordshire – 3 February 2018
Majestic try and promote how they care about staff, give free lunch, social committee etc, but in reality each department manager has complete control over how their team are treated. They’ve no concern about personal development for everyone, only the select few who are chummy chummy with senior management, so definitely not equal opportunities for all. You’re not recognised for personal effort and achievements. All a bit of a sham really. Shame because most people go there wanting to succeed and the CEO has great values and vision but it’s not rolled down through to all men ever of staff, it’s not fair ‘for all’. Managers take time off, and then expect you to cover more hours. Then threaten your contract when you can’t. When you do make the effort to cover, you don’t get paid for that time you have to take it as leave, which is difficult to take. One rule for one another for someone else. Overall a very disappointing, boring experience.
Free lunch, wine discount
Low salary, zero opportunities to progress regardless of ability.
