    Wouldn't even bother as it won't be listened to

    Pros

    Good benefits, competitive pay, work / life balance is great, good learning culture

    Cons

    Management are an actual disgrace. If you disagree with a Manager, you are shouted down. You are not encouraged to have your own mind or an opinion. Favouritism and special treatment of employees related to manager is also a large problem

    Advice to Management

    Bad Management will push good staff out. Listening and being more open minded could help a lot

    I worked at Veolia full-time

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Relatively nice working environment and office equipment provided

    Cons

    Poor training in place with no set structure for a graduate entering. Management are poor and most don't work very hard or show any passion to the company. Most of the staff had no respect for the management.

    I have been working at Veolia full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is so lovely to work with. They are warm and welcoming. But in office base you need to make effort to meet all the people. Can get involved in so many areas of company and Very open to learn.

    Cons

    Lack of organisation in areas of giving work. But also lack of management from top level in terms of culture. Needs more culture and fun.

    Advice to Management

    More cohesion and needs more culture. A lot of new people unhappy and retension needs to be loooked at. Including why are people leaving. Needs interviews for people when they quit.

    A good learning opportunity with multiple departments and facets of the business.

    Un-organised and distant management with an archaic management style. Not the most inspirational job I have worked in.

    Be more professional in your interactions and conduct with all employees.
