    I have been working at Mitie full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Extremely happy with my role in the company and the respect I receive from peers and management. I've progressed in my career through excellent training opportunities and working closely with senior management. I've been given lots of responsibility which has enabled me to grow and expand my knowledge.

    Cons

    Its exciting being given more responsibility but sometimes daunting when you're faced with a large project/task although I've always had the support when needed from line management.

    Pros

    Mite is a great company to work for seeing you can have the opportunity to move up the ladder. Which in this case i have done. Its the fist company and only company so far to has given me the day off for my birthday. Which i could not have asked for a better birthday present from a company. I do make sure and enjoy this day off.

    Cons

    Company does provides training but can do a bit in advance training which will help personal growth & development.
    I have taken advantage with Jigsaw training true Mitie and has completed a few courses which has benefited to my present role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper managers needs to support the middle / lower manage and meeting with them from time to time to see how they are doing.

    I have been working at Mitie full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I am a marketer and Mitie is a great place to work if you seek to develop your career and progress through the ranks based on merit. Having worked at Shell before, I found Mitie to be less structured but more open to initiatives and ready to listen.
    Mitie can also be a fun place to work, with its own talent competition (Mitie's got talent).

    Cons

    Mitie works best for you if you're self motivated and ready to look after yourself. Remuneration packages are in line with competitors and there are corporate initiatives to reward employees who are going the extra mile such as the Stars programme.
    Comments from others on pay could have easily be made if they worked for the competition but I appreciate that everyone would like to earn more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The communications from CEO Ruby McGregor-Smith has improved since the launch of a monthly bulletin and Mitie is generally good at building a corporate culture based on our core value: excel, challenge, inspire.

    Pros

    It's a great place to work with a definite entrepreneurial-focus - you very much drive your own success here. It's a place that I feel really cares about its people.

    It's a huge company, which means it's not always obvious who to go to when i have frustrations with admin, HR and IT.
