The starting salaries are generally higher than average, and the company has a really good reputation. A good addition to your resume, especially since they also give you the freedom to work with various divisions.
Very corporoate, and heirarchial. Orders constantly getting passed down the chain of command, you spend a lot of time doing unnecessary things. A lot of time wasted with internal reports, and inconsequential meetings. Often feels like the company is run out of a business studies textbook, and not in the real world. They move employees to a new location on very short notice.
Workplace diversity due to presence of people from all walks of life, from fresh graduates, tested corporate honchos and ex-military personnel.
You get access to some very high profile contacts, ood H&S atmosphere, very reputed name on your resume. Decent starting salary, and good job stability.
Unnecessary graduate scheme that leads to a very unstable workforce. There is no concept of career development, training or opportunities provided to staff, you punch in and punch out of work everyday. Not as good a in-house design or engineering team as it used to be, babcock is slowly becoming a service industry player instead, and a highly corporate atmosphere.
Hardly anything remains of a once great company
Absolutely nothing. Dreadful management. Totally unachievable KPI's, unappreciative, no work life balance, dreadful salary for the hours you worked
I've always loved working, but the way this company treat you is appalling. Hated every day working for them. They made me I'll.
I never knew as a professional, anybody could treat you so badly. One of the most unusual things was having bullish management who were clueless of what it was actually like to try and do what they asked of you without working 24-7.
Leaving. Truly the worst company I have ever worked for.
The management, hours of work, pay, pathetic unachievable kpi's, the equipment you had to work with, the extremely high staff turnover, staff morale, bullish useless management and I could go on and on...
The pathetic security measures to turn on the the utter useless pieces of equipment you were given to work with. Stupidity beyond belief!
Fair pay shouldn't be a benefit!
