Definately not the best

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Started off good, good banter between the lads and easy work although far too much work for the amount of staff, went on descent for a while then the cracks start to show, staff turnover is huge, reviews and updates on progression are never done or take far longer than usaul, some cases a matter of years, fake positions are created to pass the blame and from what i saw laziness is often rewarded or ignored and the actual grafters get overlooked, a few good lads left but they wont last as the stress is building up on them, management are not supported and then told they dont perform well and are let go, tools are literally falling apart and health and safety is nowhere to be seen, potentially could be a good place but its along way from where it should be.

Pros

Half descent money for easy work

Cons

Long hours, impossible workload, awful tools

Avoid at all costs

Working with bricklayers and supervisors who have very little command of the language. Very ignorant to speak to in conversation, the workmanship is below standard with a job ethic of just get it up.

Pros

None

Cons

Poor management on site.

Terrible place to work

Seems all good when you 1st start. The communication in there is terrible, gone through 10 different managers in the space of about a year, they don't say your doing well. Or not so we'll. If they think your not doing so well. They won't come and tell you. They will juat let you go. None talks. And they expect you to be here, there, and everywhere, DO NOT BOTHER UNKESS YOU WANNA BE RIPPED OFF.They are not sure who or what they want.

Pros

None

Cons

No communication, cant settle with a manager.

Worst brickwork company in London

They drop lots of people promised 180 and then paid 150. Albanian management created absolutely hateful atmosphere on their sites. I strongly recommend to avoid this company.

Productive, intense and relaxed

Been with Lee Marley now a year, it’s the best choice I made to become an apprentice as I’m learning a lot and getting different tricks and skills from the black hats on my site. I’ve enjoyed this first year and hope to enjoy many more.

Pros

Hours are great and the pay only gets better

Great team work

I have been working at Lee Marley Brickwork for 4 years. The management team are great to work with and very organized. Each site and contract managers always work well as a team and on site we are always backed up by the office and senior contracts managers.

A pleasure to work for..

Great place to work

I really enjoy my administrative role at LMB. I do the site admin for the north west London region. Senior management are extremely friendly and helpful. I feel I am trusted to get on with my job and someone is always there to support me when needed. The site project managers are also very pleasant to work with.

Pros

Great management

Cons

I don’t feel there are any cons to the job

Engaging and friendly workplace

After deciding on a career move away from recruitment, I joined LMB and it was the best decision I have made. Management are open and willing to teach you and ensure you are trained to a good standard. The office has a friendly, welcoming feel which makes working here very enjoyable. Hours of work are good and rates of pay are competitive. I can see myself building a new career here and I look forward to the opportunities this company presents.

Pros

Working Hours, Working Environment, Friendly Staff and Management

Best professional move I have made

This was a completely new industry for me and I have loved every minute of it! Great team in the office as well as out on site! Management take a genuine and consistent interest in what you are doing and are all ears when it comes to putting forward ideas or suggestions!There is a really good balance, which is great considering how fast paced and intense the construction industry can be!

Pros

Great work life balance, clear progression and support
