Middle Manager in Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear
on 27 December 2020
Avoid at all costs
The culture of the company is fear and insecurity and its bred from the very top - that somehow this Victorian technique is the right way to go. New management arrive with great enthusiasm but have the life slowly sucked out of them until they get normalised to the culture, get fired or resign. Managers are frightened of their own shadows and lash out at their own staff, as a survival technique. It's a 'dog eat dog' world. There is a strong belief from the top that staff should uphold the company behaviours and values and be seen to be saying / doing the 'right thing'. The net result is that this becomes the No 1 priority for staff because failing to do so means that you wont 'survive'. And people have mortgages to pay.So many people I met have had time off work for stress related illnesses.......... and its genuine!! Avoid, Avoid, Avoid.

Was ok.
Was Ok to work for. But got a little piised off due to constant management changes. My manager although was ok. Brought in friends who I had to train up to become my boss.
Administrator in Yorkshire

You’ll do well if you know someone here
It’s all about who you know and not what you know. People in senior positions either bring in relatives or friends, which can result in apprentices and graduates who’ve been with the company for years to be fired. Management is slack; a bunch of the elder generation who ‘know’ about construction but not enough to do their job without their assistant or tea boys. Apprentices are turned into working slaves. Graduates have more of a chance of having an actual career.It’s a good place to work if you want to be taken advantage of (unless you know a senior manager or director).For a company that preaches mental health, they don’t care about how anyone feels.
