    I worked at BLJC as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company was very fair when time off was required for personal time, i.e. Doctors appointments, etc. Not so gracious with the overtime compensation.

    Cons

    The company employee's they sub out to don't usually know that you are limited to certain functions and various mandatory procedures limiting potential added beneficial services to clients needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously train your Management and listen to the lower ranks ideas and concerns

    Pros

    They do a good job of mentoring you if you are starting you career. However, this doesn't apply to all departments.

    Cons

    The pay is well below average. The senior management team could be very cold and arrogant. They pass you in the hall way or even see you at events and ignore you. Unless you've got a top job, you can be made to feel very inferior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be good idea to share profits with all the employees via salary increases. Really need to value and pay employees fairly...

    I worked at BLJC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefit package if you have a family,Salary is comparable to what you will get doing the same job in the rest of the FM industry

    Cons

    Work environment in HQ is horrible, it’s an open office and it is packed. No room to take a private call at all, you need to walk out of the entire building if you need any privacy. Many long-time employees who are not qualified for what they are doing…Generally fairly low tech across the entire company. Some top management people could be very arrogant. For example, if you meet some of them in the corridor, don’t expect they would say "hi" or smile back to you. Very political environment in HQ, you have to be careful what you are saying even in the washroom. Recommend wearing a formal outfit every day,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat well performing and qualified employees with more respect and be less hesitant to deal with those who are not qualified.

    Pros

    Some really nice people in head office and on site. Good parties. Pays their employees well. Free fruit, bread and cakes.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, and you'll be chastised for not getting work done when you are working 24/7. Lots of bullies in senior management who go unpunished and more the to the point, rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the arseholes and hire enough people to do the work.
