    I have been working at Mitie full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    A collective approach is the mentality at all levels of the business; with great emphasis on diversity.

    Cons

    Staff could recurve higher levels of remuneration for their job roles; especially those in lower skill required positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in managerial development for those within the management structure. Also, continue to support members of the work force.

    I worked at Mitie full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Career development opportunities, also I worked with some great people. Staff benefits good for managerial levels including share options, SAYE, employee benefits scheme

    Cons

    Mitie equity model is reserved for a select few, so it's disengaging for others who work just as hard and contribute just as much, but without the rewards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management are not visible enough to the workforce, they should get more involved. Need to be more flexible in working patterns within teams and support work life balance more.

    I have been working at Mitie full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hard to come up with any, the clients are a joy but I can't say the same for Mitie

    Cons

    Shocking attitude to colleagues, not a care for anyone else
    Very poor pay levels across the board, it got better above me but from me down the pay scale is a disgrace considering the work pressures people are put under - REWARD the workers
    Zero HR support on bullying and the serious side of the work place, HR may not have any decent work experience
    Senior Mitie managers and the directors I met I wouldn't trust with an empty bucket, let alone the mop!
    If they don't like you, they will bully you out
    Do not understand the basics of employee relations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave, work for a proper company at grass roots level for a couple of years and then bring the positives back into a work place. Management need experience of professional management which is gained through decent experience and not what they have read in a book
    The senior managers should leave and emigrate because one day, someone is going to take you to the cleaners (no pun intended)
