    I have been working at Morgan McKinley part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Training is ongoing and exhaustive. There is a continual program of training and development and it is a commitment taken really seriously. Career progression is well documented so that if goals are obtained advancement is systematic. It feels collaborative. The narrative is a positive one. Very collegiate and accepting. Lots of different backgrounds, agers and characters and everyone very positive and upbeat and it...

    Cons

    The teams diversity is becoming a better reflection of the market we serve with a mix of nationalities and cultures. There are now more than a couple of Aussies! I think this has really added a professionalism and feels more appropriate for the region we serve and our international candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure the directors are providing adequate support to the MD's. There is a huge body of seniority, tenure, skill and knowledge and the directors could provide a strong line of support to the MD's.

    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...

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

    Pros

    New MD has a lot of experience and is friendly and wants everyone to succeed. Has been in the business a short time and brings a lot of energy and support. I feel like there is more support and am excited for changes. The office culture feels positive and its a very good location. Strong PSL's and clients and the business feels like it will grow. I am excited for my future here.

    Cons

    Previous management, a lot of changes over the past year and good people leaving. However this will hopefully stop as new management are very supportive and want to hire good people.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep listening to staff and hire good people and treat people fairly.

    Pros

    Things are getting better with the new MD. The new management are good at encouraging, supportive and want you to succeed. Starting to have more interaction with the other MMK offices globally and re-establish the company training program. Monthly social and charity events, encourage ppl to socialise outside of work. Great incentives, Top billers lunch, paid incentive trip ( going to Bali this year)

    Cons

    None so far. Keep up the good work

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to staff at all levels, go beyond and rebuild the great MMK culture & values.
