Bullying culture and slow to get things done. Lots of nepotism. Couldn't wait to leave. May be different now as the leadership has changed since I was there

Great salary and parking. Interesting company work history. These are the only two positives I experienced here.

Unfortunately a very toxic work environment. Witnessed bullying, racism, exclusion in the People team. Lots of narcissistic managers. Very strong blame and back stabbing culture. General culture of fear. I wouldn't recommend working unless you thrive in toxic environments.

Working for the company it is pretty obvious that the board management don't really know what happens on the ground and all the staff have been there for so long they are not wanting to move with the time and want everything to stay as it is.
Pros
None
Cons
Long Hours

they are a good company and have served us well however the long hours and being away from home has become too much. there is also a lack of security as the constant unknowing of what job is next and if there is even another to move onto
Pros
very supportive
Cons
far from home

Can't really speak for the company now as its been a a while but while I worked for them, they were actually pretty good. Only real gripe was the work life balance.
Pros
Good management team.
Cons
work life balance weighed heavily in their favour.

Poor senior leadership team with big ideas but no sign of them taking the operatives with them. Driven by a bold 10 year plan to get them Tier 1 status - not a hope. Plus a reliance on a set of values. The leaders pay no attention to these whatsoever.
Pros
Great workforce
Cons
Clueless senior management team

Murphy Group are very family-orientated and treat their workers as a team. However, this means they can be lenient when it comes to workers messing up without punishment or warning. The salary is very competitive and it is a positive and friendly environment to work in but for myself personally, there has been no opportunity to progress in the company no matter how much I show I am willing.

Did not enjoy working here. I really do not want to go into anymore detail. Its a very isolating place to work and the mixture of wor was far too confusing especially not knowing many people and who to liaise with.
