Productive and enjoyable place to work
Fantastic company with great staff and flexible working. The senior management go above and beyond to help out and make your day as stress free as positive.
Awful place to work
Absolute shambles of a company. Dreadful management and just a badly organised company overall. The work is not stimulating in any way shape or form and the work delegation from management is poor. As an employee you are unable to voice you’re views as the ideas are shot down and not taken on board. This company gives you false promises and no job satisfaction or security what so ever. The bad reputation of this company is an honest insight into working here and is really embarrassing. Avoid at all costs.
Bad management, boring work, not valued as an employee in any way
Depressing, unachievable targets, bullying culture
Worst of all developers, this company will chew you up and spit you out , no job satisfaction or pride. Will not give you any support and will expect you to achieve targets that are unrealistic and unavailable. You will end up working a minimum of 10 hous a day and most saturdays. The materials you will be given to build are cheep and the after build customer care is 24 7 and you spend several hours a day dealing with irate dissatisfied customers.
Stressful toxic working environment
Employees mean nothing to management
Management only care about their own advancement, there’s no respect for staff at all. Good work goes unrecognised. Sales staff were making the company excellent profits, yet the company decided to cut their commission. Make the company money and they take away your own, doesn’t make sense does it. The directors seem to think paying staff peanuts is reasonable, whilst they themselves rake in thousands of pounds of bonuses. Awful company to work for.
Horrendous working environment
The Commercial was put on garden leave as a result of alleged underwhelming management style , I was there for 4 months , and was delighted to leave , most horrendous working conditions & company culture….
Horrendous working culture
