Pros

I worked with a committed team of professionals with a variety of experience/skills and talent.

Cons

As a young but substantial sized company, we lacked the investment in the more modern technologies that could streamline how we managed a clients property and facilities for them. Death by Excel and Power Point.

Advice to Management

Bite the bullet and invest in software and systems that will exceed your clients expectations. The long term dividends will be seen through client referrals and a more engaged workforce.

    Pros

    Big company with some interesting projects, mostly through acquisition.

    Cons

    No regard for people, top-down mentality means those at the coal face are told what to do with very little autonomy. This has led to a blame culture and staff avoiding responsibility at every opportunity. Salaries are low, even for the construction industry. Benefits are rigid and offer poor choice.

    Advice to Management

    Consider that your staff are people, not just numbers.
