“Industry-leading company with vision and direction, driven and ambitious”

The CEO, somebody with real vision that inspires the rest of the company As an organisation prepared to take risks in order to please the client and excel and keep ahead of the competition Lots of really bright people in organisation – all driven and with a strong sense of purpose and direction Enjoy being part of a leader in the industry, on the cutting edge, constantly innovating

Bureaucratic processes and procedures Just pepper-spraying training is not talent management and key staff leave Loyalty can then be rewarded with being taken forgranted, and walked over as the talent gap needs to be covered by someone Business is working almost beyond capacity and IT seems to lag behind instead of being up front helping to provide the solutions

Great to have a visionary leader at the top

“Build a big career with Laing”

The sense of energy and drive -- you just know LOR are going places. Really, buzzy atmosphere, committed staff and some brilliant projects to manage in the world of construction. Laing have a 'work hard, play hard' mentality and if you're a grafter, you'll reap big rewards. Strong leadership from the top. Good training programme that recruits from both schools and colleges.

LOR lets too many good people slip through their fingers. More effort needs to go into staff retention after so much work is done in training and development. Sometimes, management can be brusque or aggressive in their eagerness to drive the company forward. Work-life balance can suffer badly.

Global company, with brilliant staff bonus scheme.
