Was this review helpful?

this was a complete waste of time and effort

It was like watching paint dry. The managers were sub human cardboard cut outs with no substance beyond jelly with performance as a jelly mould to suit.

Pros

no one notices that you're asleep

Cons

if they do notice you're asleep, they couldn't care less.

Badly managed in B'ham & EE

'A terrible experience all round. Bad bullying and blame culture. No structured training, complete lack of organisation ability from management. The senior members of the team run the office like their own little club, offering no support to staff or management of projects then putting staff under pressure when higher management get involved, blaming the staff for the project failures' ALL TRUE . No training in what you need, lots of training in what don't need. You're used as a cash generator, no benefits and salary are below market rate.

Pros

None

Cons

Senior management

Great team

A large company, great resources to pull on with vastly experienced team members. Great opportunity for progression, with a genuine, pro-active approach to insuring a healthy work / home life balance.

Relaxed, fun, collaborative

While working on tasks, i was able to pluck ideas from other people and add them to my own vice versa. This allowed my ideas to be incredibly improved by the end of the first week. There is a level of competition in the firm which is nice whilst still keeping quite a relaxed but fast paced atmosphere which is perfect to work in.

Stressful and under appreciated

This may be due to the the role I was in but unfortunately there was a lot of expectation but no guidance and training given for me to excel in this role. I was busy everyday which is how I like to work but at the same time, the amount of work being done compared to the job title and salary was not worth it. There was no progression ladder there for me to become successful in this organisation which was the reason why I left.

Hierarchical and dictatorial

T&T promotes a great culture, but unfortunately does not practice it. Everything is a tick-box exercise. The sole focus is on clients, not staff. Their appeal is high profile clients and projects.

Badly managed in Wilton.

A terrible experience all round. Bad bullying and blame culture. No structured training, complete lack of organisation ability from management. The senior members of the team run the office like their own little club, offering no support to staff or management of projects then putting staff under pressure when higher management get involved, blaming the staff for the project failures. Very negative atmosphere. Avoid!

Great people and fantastic office space

Great people and fantastic office space with a great view of St Paul's. Secretarial wise not a lot of scope to develop your skill set and limited promotional opportunities.

Great experience but low pay as an intern.

Insight into risk management by shadowing other colleagues. Also did requirements management so I had to make sure that the engineers and constructers were following the guidelines of the contract for the Crossrail project so sometimes we would have to go onsite and see how the project was progressing and see if they are making the platforms the right size and their expected finish date to complete building the platforms and stations.

Pros

Experience

Cons

Long hours and low pay

Middle Man

In T&T, you are employed as a middle man. All the company cares about is making sure you are on a fee earning commission. There is no training to up skill you and in commissions, the business tend to forget about you. It has a very high turnover of staff.

Amazing new workplace at One New Change

Amazing facility at One New Change. Summer placement to enable me to discover what profession i would best suit within the property industry. Manager was not informative or helpful in allowing me to experience the desired disciplines. Other managers for placement students gave a much more comprehensive and detailed experience, also a better understanding in how to balance work and social life.

Pros

New office

Cons

Poor management

Contract Service Department are very professional

A very good and very professional company to work for. They are very proud of their professional image and this carries through to their overseas offices no matter how remote. I was very pleased to work for them albeit for a short time but it was good to see get involved and understand their corporate approach and work methods.

Pros

Good people and great office atmosphere.

Cons

Contract services, London team are very professional but lack diverse experience, I am unable to offer a good comment about the Dubai in house expert
