    I worked at John Sisk & Son

    Pros

    excellent control systems, very good on safety and quality , good it systems, the best builder in Ireland with an excellent reputation for producing a great quality product.

    Cons

    they work their staff very hard, people are seen as purely numbers, loyalty by staff is not reciprocated by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    consistently squeezing staff salaries while not controlling expenditure at site level is not a sustainable solution, subcontractors should be paid what they are entitled to rather than what they can be forced to accept
