    Pros

    Nice Offices in London, canteen, cleaners on site,

    Managers are extremely rude and love to micromanage. They also talk to you really down and treat you really badly. People are very full headed, rude and arrogant. Horrible environment to work at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your staff with respect and stop micromanage.

    I worked at Mace Limited full-time

    Pros

    The company is well-respected in the Construction industry and it is very profitable. Senior managers were approachable. Benefits were fair, although salary poor.

    Cons

    Salaries are too low and below national average, despite the fact the head office is located in the City where salaries are traditionally higher. The company is very profitable but that's only because they like to cut costs and don't invest in their staff. I finally had to leave after two years without a pay rise, despite the fact that my appraisals were excellent and the company was making a billion turnover. I left for a similar job with a salary that is forty percent more than what I was making at Mace, which just goes to show you how low the salaries at Mace are. Consequently, the people who work at Mace are of a lower calibre, and not ambitious or bright enough to get high-flying jobs elsewhere.

    Managers liked to micro-manage. They also encouraged competition between colleagues, which caused a lot of tension in our department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with more respect. Stop micromanaging them as it makes for very unmotivated staff. Also, pay them a decent wage. Competition in the City is fierce and you're simply not attracting the best talent.

    Knowledgable workforce. Various backgrounds, so always someone on hand to offer advice when requested.

    Cons

    Always someone on hand to offer advice when not requested. Arrogance of senior staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont always focus on the big projects as staff need to gain experience on smaller projects too.

    Some of their flagship projects can be very interesting.
    At the time of my employment they had a very good mentor scheme and graduate scheme. The support of training was second to none.
