Toxic management

Staff lovely, management toxic. Any issues are brushed under the carpet. Busy but manageable workload. No support from management when issues are raised. Management stick together, don’t listen to others. Such a shame as staff turnover is high and not going to get better if this continues.

Pros

Nice staff to work with

Cons

Toxic management

Okay

Was not a bad place to work. A bit messy from management and often had little work to do then loads the next day, wasn’t consistent. Pay was good enough but management was a big let down

Rubbish management

It started well

Overall I love the job but the micromanagement is starting to get unbearable with the change in market conditions. The lack of weekends off unless you book annual leave are also a bugbear. Ultimately it’s the clients journey that is the most enjoyable factor and moving people into their new home.

At 1st Good place to work

The turn around of management in this company is crazy. 15 different managers in a year on Muiriston alone tells you everything. Senior management are bully boys

Pros

Early finish

Cons

Everything else

Avoid!

Toxic workplace, blame culture, lack of support, pay well below other similar companies, micro managed. Weak senior management. Holiday routinely refused. Watch your back or someone will stab you in it. Revolving door of staff says it all

Pros

None

Cons

An unfair work place

The hierarchy mentality in this place is crazy if someone just doesn’t like you that you know about it. Given no official training and yet expected to know everything off by heart within the first month. Such a belittling atmosphere, if you haven’t been there for years upon years all have family in there I think they like to make it difficult for you. Not a great atmosphere always feel like people are sneaking around you/confessing about you behind your back. Given criticism yet no constructive criticism to actually help. And overall unfair workplace and unfair dismissals.

Amazing place to work, would highly recommend

If you want to feel like a valued member of a team then Bellway homes would be the best fit. Everyone is so eager to help with anything you need, the management at Bellway is very driven and target focused which allows them to bring the best out in their teams. Customer care has one of the best sections to work for. The team are amazing, the head of customer care is brilliant and nothing is ever too much trouble she will help whenever and wherever she can. Cannot thank them enough for giving me the chance to work for such a great company.

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.

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! 🙈
