Bullies

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Interserve full-time for less than a year

ProsWages were fair for the area.
Great environment for the amoral.

ConsBullying management - most of the senior staff started off managing cleaners on minimum wage and use that same style as they go up the ladder.
Blame culture, consistent with above I suppose.
Culture of promoting and encouraging chancers.
Appalling work life balance. I was criticised for not being willing to sign the working time directive exemption; for getting my work done and submitting a timesheet under 40 hours, for putting travel time on a timesheet - you get the idea.

Advice to Senior ManagementI suspect you'd ignore any advice given to you as the business model seems typical of other facilities management organisations and you see yourselves as cost, not quality, led.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good firm to start out at

Assistant Quantity Surveyor (Former Employee)
Birmingham, England (UK)

I worked at Interserve full-time for more than a year

ProsGood training, opportunities to move within business, decent pay for graduates

ConsLots of life long staff who dont always understand new ideas/reluctance to change. Birmingham office in a poor location. Rubbish company cars. Some good opportunities around in the firm but had to put up resignation before they were offered to me.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep bringing in new people and keep on developing them or you will be out of talent in a few years. Promote youth - it worked with the Chief Exec!
Align bonuses to personal performance and not just the business unit.
Lose 1 layer of management (assistant directors) who dont really have the power to change anything.
