Clouded by apprehension and uncertainty for the future..

Field Engineer (Gas) (Current Employee)

ProsGood remuneration package i.e pension,sharesaves etc A certain level of job security though this has been somewhat eroded in recent years.

ConsNo developmental opportunities and feel under utilised and under valued. In recent years, management have adopted a style close to bullying. Lack of recruitment and new blood in this part of the industry. Free wheeling lower tier managers. Office staff are promoted and grow their careers whilst field engineers are ignored. There is a tendency to promote people just to fill quotas eg women in management etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees. Grow and recruit from the ground up. Harness their years of experience. Stop treating long term employees as disposable tools that are discarded when they malfunction. Make coal face reality agree with the Corporate imaging which is inaccurate and disingenuous.
