Time to move on with the times

Good but they need to expand meaning move away from the old dock yard mentality, meaning taking forever to do things and make resistive decisions , the money wasted is extraordinarily they usual British old works ways , they days have gone for good !

Not set up or prepared for change. Last minute .com on most things and to many mixed messages.

At ground level people are nice but even management and senior management silently agree it is poorly run as a business and company. Only in it for profit and not what they can do for the people they are training. Learners are just numbers and new ideas do not even get a reply.

Decent pay. Unfortunately nothing more positive

Nothing positive to say about working in this enviroment.Jobs for the boys culture.Company like to be seen to be caring and address employee issues but do not change the culture.

Babcock aerospace

Low pay and job changes, additional duties added to your workload for no extra pay. Alot of responsibility for very low money, okay if your retired and not looking for a fair salary.

Excellent place to work

I can only comment about the site / manager I worked with but he & the people I worked with were excellent- more like a family. Senior management only appear when they have to. Hands are tied for progression depending on trade. And if your face fits.

Pros

Work life balance good

Cons

Below average pay for similar jobs in sector

Supportive and empathetic

A very good employer with excellent work/life flexibility.Handled the challenges of Covid with remote working for all staff that could operate from home. Provided, and delivered, IT equipment to all that required it.

Useless and badly managed company stuck in time warp that has no interest in employees personal situations

A company full of dinosaurs or phone staring youngsters with only interest in an easy day or retirement and redundant payments!I would not receive anymore with any amount of self worth or ability to even consider working for this shambles of a company

Pros

Little work ever get done

Cons

No overtime enhancement payment or proper worker rates

Great place to work but slow paced

Everything is slow as things take awhile to get approved so good if you don’t want a high pressure/stressful environment.Majority of people are super friendly and help to develop.

Pros

Company culture

Cons

Management / communication can be confusing

Poor company, low salaries, bad organisational culture

Unsupportive and unfair management. Your face has to fit in to be treated fairly. No training whatsoever unless you “know” or are related to some important managers in the company, so favouritism is the answer.No provision if you have a long term condition , total disregard for pregnancy and maternity rights. No gender equity, this is a “men’s world”.

Pros

Job stability if you do not care for pay increase or career progression

Cons

Low salary, toxic environment, unsupportive management

Stagnant workplace with little or no opportunities

Fast paced work with good people. Poor senior management a lot of the time with almost zero recognised external training. Promised a lot by management but rarely delivered

Pros

Flexible

A fine company with great benefits

A major, industry leader with great benefits and job security. Advancement is certainly possible and the technology and training on site is always improving.

Nice team

Good place to work. I worked within the commercial team. However , coming from a finance background, I don’t think the job was for me. It suited someone that had a legal background particularly for the contract management side of the job.

Slow paced workshop

Very slow paced work. Management/work planning need improvement. Work/home life balance couldn’t be any better. Just need to take life a bit slower when you arrive for work. I would work there again

Miserable place to work

This place has destroyed my mental health, it’s very much if your face fits - but if you play golf you’ll go far! It’s not the workplace it was when the mod had the yard..Babcock have ruined it.

So much work for little pay and no benefits.

Company is a KPI driven and managers protect their favourites. Always working well I’ve to try abs complete all tasks, admin is just crazy. Managers do not care about the learners experience or journey, just hitting the KPI’s that no staff receive any benefits for.

Pros

Manage your own hours

Cons

Hours, no benefits, manager unprofessional

Low pay for industry

Depth work is slow paced and more relaxed. Rectification work is more faced paced.Pay for industry is good on T2 but we’ll below par on T1.Management approachable, but tend turn a blind eye when it suits

Pros

T2 4 on 4 off and reasonable pay T1 4 on 3 off

Cons

Low pay for T1 personnel

Good engineers and a fun atmosphere

Long travel but enjoyable work on important systems. Plenty of support from above. Free parking and an on site physio and health suite to help out when needed

Disappointing

No job progression, no incentive only if your face fits nothing but false hopes and promises, lack of communication, can't wait to leave, lots of bullying for supervisors on average 6-8 people leaving per week

Pros

Hours not to bad

Cons

False hopes and promises
