I have been working at Babcock International full-time for more than 3 yearsPros
As a technical apprentice, Babcock has offered me some fantastic and unique learning opportunities. I have worked with some fantastic engineers throughout my time who have all been very keen and helpful to take time to teach me as much as they can.
I have also been enrolled into a design engineering honours degree course with the Open University which is a fantastic opportunity to work my way up toward a chartered engineer.Cons
Reviews are supposed to take place every 6 months but are often delayed for months at a time, although any pay is backdated to the time the review was supposed to happen, it would be better to have these take place on time as you can begin to feel forgotten about when you are left for so long.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Continue to train from within the company as this gives a good incentive to continue to work hard and develop your skills.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
