Pros

A nice place to work depends on site and assignment. Meet some amazing people that make up your team. There is a relaxed approach to work and alot of the time just consists of keeping an eye on an office building

Cons

When you start you will get the whole hoo haa of amazing support training and opportunities to move up in the company. these are basically so rare you are more likely to find a dinosaur in your garden. You have to push your manager to give you training courses, and the 24/7 call out expectation is rubbish

Advice to Management

keep on top of your workers, you have so many that have huge potential that is just drained away because of lack of training and opportunities to move up

    Working at the Wimbledon Championships - a good way to earn money for the summer but not for people who like to be busy.

    Pros

    2 weeks work at the beginning of the summer holidays with 12 hour shifts means that you don't have to work the whole summer to get money. They do provide lunch. You can also get other work for other events so you can top up with more money. If you get training your pay rate increases and returners automatically are paid more.

    Cons

    The management were disorganised and did not motivate workers as they tended to use Taylor style motivational techniques and micro-management. The uniform was often difficult to work in as the hats were uncomfortable (though were good for those who did not have access to shade) and the trousers and skirts were made of material that was either too thick or too thin and prone to gaining static electricity. Not good for people who like to be constantly busy as you go long spells without anything to do apart from look professional.

    Advice to Management

    Try to treat workers like they are human beings and not merely a resource as that may help to motivate workers.
