A once decent company that has forgotten its roots.

Bellway used to be a good company to work for but stale wages and ambiguity towards the work force have made the whole experience draining. Not the worst place I’ve worked, but far from the best.

Good company to work for

They are a good company to work for overall, flexible and good benefits. They could use some improvement in dealing with internal bullying/discrimination.

Pros

Good benefits, flexible working, annual events

Cons

Not great HR support in difficult situations

Flog the horse til it dies!

Not a great place to work and it has got worse in the last year so I’m told! Flogged everyday with very little support! Wessex had a very poor technical dep, poor engineering dep and overall a very poor HQ. They pay good so if you can put up with all the rest then enjoy! 🙈

QS but a long time ago

Was a great place to work. In my career I've worked many places and this was my 2nd favourite.Work was OK if a little repetitive (House bumping) the staff attitude, team and spirit was 1st class.The senior management was borderline psychotic

Pros

Great people and attitude amongst staff

Cons

MD was extreme - to put it nicely

Cliques and discrimination

Management don’t care about the staff, progression is a myth and you’re expected to work multiple roles for a single salary with not extra support. If you’re a woman planning on having a family this is the worst place to work as they lead you to believe there is progression then they don’t allow that to happen because you’ll be taking time off for your baby.

Pros

The air con works

Cons

Everything else

Good pay, very stressful now

Joined Bellway 8 years ago. Friendly company and good to work for with good managers on the whole and who treated you well as long as the sales and work was done. Had more of a laid back approach which worked well with the staff. Good pay. Now all that has changed and poor management and stress levels high.

Pros

Good pay structure

Cons

ageism. No I.T. training, bullying management

Ok to work for

Bellway homes were good to work for and site manager and Assistant manager were really good people just the pay wasn’t very good and I had to travel 40 miles to work
Was this review helpful?

enjoyable but stressful

Bellways is a good company i enjoyed working there but the only issue i came across is the management on the sites, some sites you could be alright given a job and let to crack on with it but other sites have managers who think they are bigger and better than you, they speak down to you like they own you and you are nothing and they manage to make your day worse all the time, you come to work to enjoy yourself and make a living nobody should be treated differently.
