Review summary

As one of the world leaders in entertainment, Merlin offers employees “a chance to travel around the world”, with numerous opportunities across the globe, including “placements at Madame Tussaud’s in New York and the Legoland California Resort.” It therefore isn’t hard to understand the high scores of 4.64/5 for International Opportunities and 4.53/5 for Location, given that “you can walk out of the office and be in an aquarium surrounded by sharks and stingrays.” With such unique locations and the opportunity to work at world-famous venues, it is no wonder that Merlin scored 4.63/5 for Enjoyment. Working for Merlin provides for a “fast-paced, well-rounded and generally fun experience”, where graduates are “exposed to a number of different brands and attractions”. As one reviewer neatly sums up, “nothing beats working at an attraction.” Employees also point to the fact that “opportunities for growth are endless” and “you are trusted with projects of high importance” to explain the score of 4.39/5 for Responsibility. In fact, the company prepares graduates to be at the Manager position within just 18 months, making it little wonder that Merlin scored 4.31/5 for Progression. These progression opportunities are guided by “close contact with and support from senior managers who help and advise you on the direction of your career.” The Support provided achieved a score of 4.58/5, while those providing this support were also praised, Management scoring 4.41/5 and Colleagues receiving a rating of 4.50/5. To top it all off, graduates also speak highly of a “wonderful company culture, where everyone loves what they do,” leading to a score of 4.34/5 for Company Culture. [From the Top Companies 2014/15]
