Does Morrisons have a pension plan?

Pros

Management usually too busy or too incompetent to provide much oversight meaning you can usually work as hard or as lazy as you feel like with no consequence. Comradery with other staff. Friendly regular customers. Can usually have a good laugh with colleagues while working.

Cons

No paid breaks, risky pension scheme, given small payrise with one hand, more employee benefits taken away with the other. Your availability usually must be fully flex meaning random shift patterns working early or late shift any 5 days over 7 without any consistency

Advice to Management

Treating people like actual people and speaking politely and calmly motivates them a lot more than treating them like garbage

No paid breaks, risky pension scheme, given small payrise with one hand, more employee benefits taken away with the other.

Does Morrisons offer employee discounts?

Pros

The 10% staff discount on top of the above average pay is very good for a young student.

Cons

Terrible Communication from the management, I have never felt so under-valued in my life before - many of the staff agree. A staff turnover of over 50% is very telling. Continuously under staffed, putting pressure on the workers and ultimately giving the customers a worse experience.

Advice to Management

Listen to your colleagues, appreciate them.

The 10% staff discount on top of the above average pay is very good for a young student.

How are senior leaders perceived at Morrisons?

Pros

None

Cons

Since appointment of complete new senior leadership from board to area operation/store management, Morrisons has adopted a culture of intimidation. The knowledge lost through a targeted deliberate approach to removing senior leadership and store level management and replacing it with poor performers from other supermarket chains will show in poor output Q4/2018 & Q1/2019. Totally due to the lack of correct operational performance / guidance and poor management of capex.

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Morrisons?

Pros

overall benefit and salary package Yorkshire company and proud of it’s roots People that have recently joined (in the last 2 years) are really nice Food is very well priced Gate house security are lovely Craft colleagues skills are amazing and continuously developed Manufacturing sites are amazing and if the highest standards including the staff

Cons

If you join after April you will not qualify for company bonus even though you have spent the year contributing to targets Experts brought in for advice and to improve, however, once your in your told to quieten down and do things the ‘Morrison’s’ way which is complex, timely, repetitive and tired No strategy or long term plan, they have priorities which leaders do not have the capability to translate into functional scopes/strategy’s Contractors/field/store/logistics/manufacturing are unable to park on site and treated as visitors - which technically means they need to be escorted at all times around the building IT infrastructure is very limited, they have only recently started to invest in this Could be a pro or con - everything is managed through Google - mail, calendar, drive etc I really liked working through google and sharing documents easily Exec are invisible - they have offices on the top floor as known as the ‘dragons den’ People are promoted and progressed by technical capability over leadership/behavioural capability meaning a lot of managers are unable to manage teams and departments correctly Nothing around the building to socialise with the team/colleagues Ridiculous amounts of money spent on things that could be done in house or for cheaper but due to capability people tend to just do it because they don’t know any better No microwaves! Barista takes forever to serve and then make the coffee, sometimes they’re just stood having a chat while people are still waiting - average wait to order and collect is 20 minutes I believe the only reason the company is still standing is because they control field to fork and manufacturer for other companies in the UK Central push projects out without engaging anyone and wonder why it didn’t land or wasn’t well received

Advice to Management

There’s a lot to change but I don’t think it’ll ever happen

No strategy or long term plan, they have priorities which leaders do not have the capability to translate into functional scopes/strategy’s
