Not an inclusive environment. Lacks skilled middle management. Top heavy with young graduates in order to charge the client higher margins, failing on quality and delivery without the experience needed. NOT equal or transparent salary brackets. Internal politics out of kilter with professional ability. Undervalued key staff. Cheap oversees labour of over qualified staff the business program, not good ethics. Superficial environment within which to work.
Pros
Benefits scheme and flexible working hours
Cons
Not rewarding or loyal to experienced employees

This was a short term assignment to specifically undertake a process review and to make recommendations to the Managing Director. My time at Jacobs field services in Grimsby was enjoyable due to the friendly work force and their collaborative approach. The MD was very approachable and very welcoming of the suggestions made for improvement.

American company with some odd ideas to the British, but you get used to it. Good to work for with a good team and interesting work. Loyalty seems to only go one way though (might be the bitter me saying that as just been put at risk of redundancy in the middle of a pandemic (this is after CEO video messaged a while ago that the company was financially healthy to ride out the situation!)
Pros
Free fruit, good working conditions
Cons
None

A good company to work for. Most managers were effective and supportive, some were distant and not so supportive. The office had groups of old school types, working direct for clients was more pleasant.

Very dependent on manager- inconsistency in messaging. Culture noted as a key factor but not always given the importance in reality which is disappointing.
