    I worked at Kier Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Friendly staff, generally a pro-active and positive atmosphere. First five years of career here were thoroughly enjoyable, a noticed change in culture away from employee welfare over the last two to three years.

    Cons

    Expect ridiculously long hours from employees, cronyism was rife in the division I worked. Centralisation of key functions is crippling business units, lack of training and support, very poor communication and antiquated IT systems. For a Blue Chip, Kier are behind the times, strategic group management are trying to change this, but it's not getting to business unit level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to on the ground management more, what your regional and business unit directors are telling you, all is ok, it isn't! The changes being forced through are ruining moral, damaging supply chain relationships, and breaking the company. Centralisation of key functions does not work in some businesses and is false economy, ignore at your peril, I have left and have sold most of my share holding as I see trouble ahead unless someone starts to listen.
