There are opportunities to develop and progress in the company. I have had some excellent training whilst working here, some of the best I have ever experienced. The salary and the benefits are good. As a staff member you will receive regular one on one feedback and plans for your personal development which has great implications if you are keen to progress.
You are expected to perform above and beyond. Any overtime you do will be unpaid as the roles are generally salaried. However, if you worked through a contractor such as Amey, you would receive overtime pay. Double standards. Management could benefit from a review of their performance as well as their employees.
Not getting overtime pay when contractors who do the same job do.
You get an amazing training you could imagine and lots of support. Following this, it leads to to many opportunities thats you wouldn't have got otherwise. You can evolve within the company if you want to. Management listen and you are able to report and get feedback often as you go along. The pay and the benefits package are really interesting.
They have very high expectations and you have to work hard and strive not to disappoint them. Some of the management tend to expect more from the staff than from themselves, which leads to unfair treatments, as well as the fact that you don't get overtime if you work for them, whereas contractors do.
You have to get used to the high expectations
The opportunities for learning are very good and they give you a chance to start with the right bagage of knowledge. You are well supervised and management is supportive so you feel secure and valued. You also get to work on many different projects so you are never bored.
The management is not very flexible. The rules are unmovable and that doesn't allow you much freedom of action and initiative. The whole organisation could be better so that things run more smoothly and staff learn by watching more senior positions.
A vast deal of opportunities
Salary and benefits package are really good for a amount and difficulty of work required from you. The accent is put on training and you spend a lot of time doing just that...
That this amount of training is required and not just a waste of money remains to be seen. Management tends to not take into account that you've been trained and know what you are doing if they think they know better. They have high expectations but only towards the staff. Management can show poor performances and not be blamed for it. There's not much flexibility.
It is generally disappointing as you'd expect better organisational skills
Fair pay shouldn't be a benefit!
