Long hours, bullying culture
Work was long hours and lengthy time away. Work life balance is not great and chances to progress are slim. Sometimes there is a bullying culture and all depends if your face fits. Job itself was good and I enjoyed it, not so much the people.

Balfour Beatty Kilpatrick - an awful company to work for! People are leaving in droves!
Following a re-structure which caused great unrest amongst the staff, upon joining - I found that many people wouldn't speak to me, or help me, because of they way they had been treated during the re-structure, which I could understand, once I saw it for myself. Every day was no different, there was no leadership, and no structure. It certainly isn't a collaborative environment, or one that I could recommend to anyone.

All about productivity and output
Everyday is a exhausting day up the tower and on the ground doing line works. Refurbishment of line or new lines to construct. Preparation of line hardwares and equipments to be use are daily to prepare before start and even at the end of the day after job are done.Working in the company is great experience and learning new technics as well as using the right equipments and machine in doing the job. Moreover, management are always securing there workers by providing us proper knowledge about the works well carry in every place were going, the safety is of course priority. Also they brief us about environment so we are aware of the policy and rule.During winter is the hardest part of the job because you have to get use to the field and deal with the weather, the freezing steel. We need to be productive for we get paid.

difficult place to work
The working environment felt very old school hierarchal, managers approached you, not the other way around. Members of the team very encouraged to be as quiet as possible, talking to colleagues wasn't frowned up on however it was not encouraged. What could have been an enjoyable job is made difficult by the expectation to work at level perfection...always. It was expected that I would learn the role in my own time. I found a very visible blame culture, if something went wrong, someone had to take the blame.
