Good company

I learned how to change sockets and also install fire alarms and other small jobs. I was more or less helping out and shadowing a professional electrician and really getting some real life experiences

Pay not great

It’s ok but office staff can lack experience of how long jobs take in the real world and that there is no such thing as a 5 min job and jobs always look easier on paper

Employees are not valued

This company took over the maintenance contract I was on recently. They made a complete lash-up of the TUPE process, losing our personal information on two separate occasions. We have seen nothing of the higher level management, and the area manager seems to be avoiding any contact with his employees at all. Work-load has increased on the existing staff, despite additional staff being taken on to ease the workload. So far, in 4 months, we have had five employees signed-off work with work-related-stress on different occasions, with no follow-up from occupational health and no concern being shown by line managers. There seems to be a culture of intimidation, bullying and disinformation from line and upper management. I gave my notice recently with this company, I have received two emails asking me to fill in an on-line questionnaire as to my reasons for leaving and my satisfaction with thw company, these questionnaires are on the Engie portal, which I cannot access as they have not given me a log-in code for this. On my final week I received a rather intimidating “so you’re leaving, don’t disclose any company details or we’ll take further proceedings” letter. On my last day, they kept me working up to the last second of my contracted hours without even so much as a handshake and a “thank you for all you’ve done” from line management or above. So, in all, my experience working for Engie has been a thoroughly unpleasant one, and I would not recommend working for these to anyone. Best avoided.

Pros

Healthcare, overtime.

Cons

The general culture of bullying and intimidation, lack of communication from line management and above

Great place to work for

In the company where I am working, before any work to commence, on the site is created a meeting where take place an induction of the team. These include discussion about future problems and dangerous situations which can be met on site by the team. After practicing this job I managed to gain very good skills in building containment structure using cable tray, basket, ladder tray, metal and plastic trunking, metal and plastic conduit, also a high range of accessories like angle connectors, clamps, fixing hooks, brackets. Also I have practical and theoretical knowledge in installation in first fixing for a high variety of cables, install CCU boards and terminate different types of cables like SWA, FP200,Data,BT Master, Micro tube for Virgin, PVC cable all types and sizes in second fixing work. Domestic electrical repairs and installations, working from diagrams and drawings, keep the workplace safe and clean. One of the most enjoyable part of the job it was when I learned something new.

Pros

2 bakes a day

Cons

Overtime paid the same hour rate as usual.

Good

Good place to work but the salary isn't. My contract has a good work to personal life ratio with good flexi time. Management is also very good. I would recommend working here to anyone in a comfortable financial situation.
