    Pros

    Balfour Beatty is an outstanding company to work for. The Zero Harm Safety program is second to none. The opportunity for personal growth and carrier development are also outstanding..

    Cons

    Well as with all large companies, some people are not safe workers. I feel some times we give third and fourth chances. If some one proves to be unsafe, no matter how good of worker they may be, they should be let go.

    Advice to Management

    Some type of screening policy to check back ground of previous work record of all new hires should be implemented. As we all know some of these people are carrier lite duty specialist.

    Pros

    Sub-contractor portfolio School Experience Navy project experience People Opportunties to help in the Business Development arena Central Schedulers who were very good

    Cons

    In 2010, systems were changing due to Balfour Beatty acquiring Barnhart, Inc. Barnhart has just been acquired by one of Balfour Beatty subsiduiary's the year before. So financial systems switched twice in the matter of a few years. Marketing struggled a bit to win DOD projects.

    Advice to Management

    Consider in house A/E capability

    Pros

    A large company with many government contracts across the UK means job security is high and there are many opportunities to move around the country, between contracts, if you need to. Good interaction between support staff in offices and operatives working on the road helps keep things efficient. Excellent record for safety.

    Cons

    The pay offered was very low compared to other companies, both at a junior, senior and management levels. Grievances over pay were often discussed over the water cooler, which led to a high personnel turnover, both on individual contracts and at the head office. The statistics were, however, on a downward trend when I left so things may have now improved. Many staff had little issue openly stating, in front of management, that they would leave BBIS in an instant if offered a job that paid more. I, for example, was earning 30% less than counterparts in other engineering companies. An intern I worked with claimed she was being paid less than 40% of what her counterparts were and that the sponsorship offer she was presented with bound her to work for the company for 5 years after leaving university, again, on low pay. The contract director told her not to accept the offer and to find work elsewhere as it would be better for her in the long run! The procurement department was living on a different planet when they bid for contracts, often going in with prices below the raw cost, let alone raw cost + overheads. I worked with two contracts in my time there and the Quantity Surveyors on both often complained about having to 'round up' quantities (i.e. falsify records) when requesting payments for work orders, simply to balance the books. It's not nice working for a company, knowing the people you work with are overcharging the council due to incompetence at the head office and it's even worse knowing that your council taxes are paying for it

    Advice to Management

    Head office needs to employ more staff that have experience working on the ground, on the roads and on contracts. It seemed as though the staff and management at head office had little idea of how things worked outside their bubble.


  11. A large company with a small business feel.

    Pros

    Career development is highly regarded. Opportunity for advancement is equal for all employees that want to succeed. Benefit packages are better than most companies I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Balfour is currently in the process of integrating all the new businesses they have acquired over the past few years. Company processes are changing to accommodate all the new employees, so change can be somewhat painful, but the goal is a seamless national company that acts as one rather than individual divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing to improve processes and management. Never be satisfied with where we are, but always work to be better.
