Head of Contracts in Flexible
on 15 October 2021
Diverse organisation with great development opportunities
Working for a Telent as a large diverse company brings lots of opportunity to learn different markets, products and services.Really high profile customers with really interesting projects and services.Telent compete against much larger organisations and can match on scale, but be much more agile and flexible. The team work which generates this is great to be part of.Telent has great development programs from entry level right through to senior management.

Great place to get started in project management
Great place to start a career in either project management or engineering. Essentially a great stepping stone to other things. Graduate scheme is good justs need to work on mentoring framework. Issue with telent is they would rather bring in new resources rather than develop or promote from within. Therefore you run the risk of stagnating. Hence the stepping stone comment.
Engineer in Kent

A job you can really enjoy
Since being at telent my responsibilities have got greater, a load of trust can be placed on you and job is really enjoyable. But the down side is the poor pay increases (of any) and the management is overlooked by higher management when bonus are discussed. But it is a job for life if you can cope with little pay rises and loads of work.
Systems Engineer in Home Based
on 4 June 2021
Good work and benefits, poor workflow and task management
Work itself is straight forward and rewarding. Pay and benefits are good. Excellent training opportunities and support from company/management. Great work/life balance.Time management and work assignment processes are very poor despite constant feedback. I have gone periods without assigned work, despite there being work that needs doing, because management haven't assigned me the work yet (or don't want to due to politics).Pressure from management to book as many billable hours as possible on timesheets, but also lots of pressure from Project Managers to not book time to their projects. Silly system focussing on gaming the metrics rather than being honest about the work we do.
Project Manager in Warwick, Warwickshire
on 8 April 2021
A very very poor project based organisation.
Whether it is telecoms, rail or highways. They regularly fail to delivery important projects. It is the same poor performing Managing Directors and Senior Project Managers who move around from one failed project to another. They receive long service awards rather than be held to account. It is always the lowly Project Managers and Project Support staff who end up losing their jobs.
