      Good Company to work for

      Pros

      Good Company to work for, especially after new, current CEO was appointed, I feel he is making big changes into right direction. Good on training, Health and Safety, systems and procedures, good people to work with, interesting projects

      Cons

      Due to nature of business you could be working anywhere in the country, so your commute can be 2hrs each way which is killer when you are required to work 10 hrs shift on site, no relocation money is paid, they might pay your hotel stay once a week or so, but thats it. Generally pay is not the best when you consider hours you required to work, but they contribute decent pension, holiday is 26 days a year. Also atmosphere at work is very much dependent of your site management, it could be best company to work for or worst company to work for depending on your direct site manager. "Who works longest hours" still exists but that could be down to tight margins in current climate of construction sector. Big company so hard to climb the career ladder within

      It Doesn't Get Much Worse.....

      May 8, 2016 -  in London, England

      Pros

      Reasonable salary and benefits, some very good people have worked there.

      Cons

      Benefits boy do you have to earn them. If you divide your package by the number of hours you have to work, you're better off accepting a job on £5k - £10k less. If you want any work life balance or family time then forget it. Work, work, work, work mentality, still stuck in the who works the longest hours, not who produces the most mentality. Lots of redundancies (kept under the radar by small batches) in the UK as a result of poor tendering and leadership. New MD for South left after 3 months in the job, say a lot HSEQS very poor leadership coming from Ireland management. Dogmatic approach to staff management. Senior staff from HSEQS have left in droves in the past 18 months. HR advised that staff turnover was nearing 40% in the UK. That's more than three times the average in the construction industry?
