  • Make sure to get the right balance of being someone competent enough to sort all the problems that have built up for ages while being as unimtimidating as possible. Really you need to come across as someone that can do the work and will allow yourself to be bullied into doing the work of your incompetent yet very complacently unaware of it, entitled colleagues that are cosseted by the management.

  • Horrifying culture of enabling the worst people to abuse the best people. By worst people I mean those with narcissistic traits that compel them to bully anyone they can. They have to bully someone to feel ok, Mitie is a perfect environment for them. Mitie will bend over backwards to accommodate these people even to the extent of letting them abuse their colleagues, indeed the managers get stuck in with the abuse too! It is all rather pathetic and gruesome how these people are allowed to infest the place for year after year doing nothing good and everything bad that they can but there it is. Mitie organisational culture is to sweep anything nasty under the rug and have everyone trip over it constantly. Then they cannot see that they are not perfect and that they do not know everything. This means that they refuse to learn how to do their work and will do what they are convinced is their job but in reality their output is worse than useless because they are only interested in deceiving everyone so what they have done has to be undone and then done correctly . Mitie is a perfect environment for this too, the managers will bully everyone else to sort out the mess if they even notice it in the first place, the last thing they will do is confront the person that is making the mess.

  • Background checks are outsourced to Procius (which is connected to Mitie somehow) they are TOTALLY USELESS, took a year of repeating same questions and sending in same documents.

  • Or they sucker you in as a Cleaning Operative "The job description may be varied from time to time by the Company to reflect changes in the post holder’s role and/or the needs of the business." So one day your happily using the bog brush on the porcline and then you are in charge of MITIE security on site .Working with the bog brush is much better than being in charge of security for MITIE" we they should change the "M" in Mitie to an "S" and make the job description reflect the job being paid for !

  • I would care more about the employees, not mess them around or lie to them like the manager above me at castle donnington. Furthermore, the use of phycological bullying in the workplace is unacceptable at any time & I would not consider carrying it on.

  • Fine if you don’t have kids. Or a family. Or a life.

  • If you are not careful you can end up having to do work at home but if like me you are strategic then that can be avoided. The culture at Mitie enables me to delegate a lot which is great, even to people that in other places I could not consider using because of rules about corporate governance etc. But Mitie enables me in so many ways, it really is refreshing! In other places being enabled to get what I need in others, including my need to keep myself feeling ok and keeping anyone that threatens that down.

  • Management and their blame culture. Seems this is a common theme across contracts and sites. Some people get away with fraud, Incompetence, bullying etc. Yet others can’t breathe in the wrong direction.

  • Got a couple of cheap cream unpackaged reusable face masks, in the post, eventually, but everyone wears black! Security uniform is black. Silly badges posted. Forced to wear ‘not all heroes wear capes’ & the most recent ‘stronger together Interserve acquisition’. Pay rise? Bonus? Cheers Mitie
