Pros

Once you are part of the team or in the know of the senior management/directors you are looked after in all matters save salary. You are able to take time off work as required for family reasons without affecting your overall holiday entitlement, which BTW is one of the most generous in any industry save teaching. IT is very good and you are provided with the equipment required to carry out your job. Flexible working hours are tolerated provided work does not suffer.

Cons

The longer you stay the further behind your salary will fall compared to the general market. The new T&C's are very generic in terms of what you get elsewhere, and only holiday exceeds other Contractors. Work Place Socialising used to be very good, however as GT has become a larger PLC this has become less practised. Company cars/allowances are poor.

Advice to Management

Do not promote someone just to give them more pay - increase the pay and more people will stay.

    The senior management lack honesty and integrity. They are contractual and do not pay their supply chain on time.

    I worked at Galliford Try full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have some great loyal people. The housing business is very successful and supports the construction side of the business.

    Cons

    Senior Management are only in it for their own gain. They don't pay their supply chain in an open and honest way. They struggle to keep hold of good people. Training and personal development is not a priority.

    Advice to Management

    The is a need to provide real inspirational leadership supported by truly lived values. Cash management needs to be more open and honest. Share the success with the people on the ground. Provide a structured training and development programme for all. Recognise the benefits of specialists within the organisation and provide a career path for them.
