    I worked at Costain

    Pros

    Location is OK
    Salary and benefits package are OK

    Cons

    Company is stuck in the 80-s, way behind current industry technological and procedural standards
    No Senior management vision or direction
    Company values are waffle with no substance to it
    No system in place for anything, project work can be described with one word- Chaos.
    Employees are not valued and can be let go for any reason in a very abrubt manner.
    there is a general negative atmosphere, a lot of frustrations, swearing in the office etc. A lot of ignorant and often rude people full of their own self-importance particularly in middle management
    No Air Conditioning
    Overall very bad experience and would not recommend this company neither to prospective vendors, nor Clients, nor job seekers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
