    I worked at The Boc Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Learning experience and wonderful mentorship

    Cons

    There are no cons to the firm. Its just a small firm so it may not be for folks that want to work for big firms. e.g. Proctor and Gamble

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire new graduates and show them the way

    Former Employee - Sales Manager in London, England (UK)

    I worked at The Boc Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There was a time when employees were genuinely proud to say who they worked for.....hpwever, that has largely disappeared as employees are seen simply as pawns to be used/abused these days.

    Cons

    The work/ lofe balance means nothing here, and even talking that way is seen as a sign of weakness/disloyalty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage open, honest views from employees and stop having a black mark logged against any employee who asks difficult questions. Ypu only end up with a team of "Yes" men and miss out on much creative thinking from below.

    I worked at The Boc Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Salary is pretty good, even may be quite high in terms of Industry standards, Flexibility at the work place is also an added advantage.

    Cons

    Work Culture especially at sites is pathetic, though the mechanical wing is good, the civil wing is literally disastrous- lacks infrastructure, competent personnel. Work-life balance is missing in site job. Besides company has discriminating policies as it tends to engage more contract engineers.

    Something to write on your CV. If you want a lazy job, then this is the place to work. Not much fun if you are hard working and ambitious.

    Low Pay, not much job opportunities. Not much fun working here.

    I worked at The Boc Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Something to write on your CV. Nice locations for work, but would need a car to travel to work. Friendly place, nice engineering/scientific products.

    Cons

    Low Pay. Big difference between Management and the rest of the employees. Management never speak of communicate with everyone else. No career opportunities, lack of training. Expect to spend a lot of time travelling 3/4 hours by car to day meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn from better companies.

    I worked at The Boc Group

    Pros

    Work life balance for most people
    If your on the graduate scheme you get a chance to progress, if not then forget it
    Nice office (unless you can't drive)
    Final salary pension - but only if you joined a few years ago

    Cons

    money - they say is average for the UK. Average if you live outside of the UK, but not for those in London, or just outside the M25
    Seriously slow moving
    Feels like an old boys network nearer the top
    Traffic - can take up to 40 mins just to get on a main road from the office at peak rush hour
    You pay for drinks...including tea
    No share scheme

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer some serious remuneration and bonuses and get some decent people in
