    Wonderful experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe projects are really interesting and the employees' knowledge is unique. They work in a Professional way and you get to delve deeper and deeper into construction. You can't get out of it without knowing almost everything on construction practices.

    ConsA lot of hardwork and dedication. You wouldn't fit there unless you really enjoy civil engineering and construction.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Laid back environment, not very corporate, has old public sector feel to it

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWould suit a nine to fiver, non-aggressive environment, laid back approach.

    ConsToo slow in progress. Most employees are middle aged and do not have typical London corporate drive. Boring , grey, drab office environment. Curfew imposed on internet use. No voicemail facility on phones so everyone picks up eachother calls! No mobiles/blackberry/s given unless you are senior managment. Not much recognition for modern methods of working - home/remote working. Hours are 8.45am - 5pm with 45min lunch. Generally boring place for young go getter types! But would suit a close to retirement nine to fiver.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Nice workplace - I was just an intern

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Rueil-Malmaison (France)

    ProsDepartments are independent - HR department doesn't interfere in the recruitment process (I guess for low positions)

    ConsInterns don't get the same benefits as other employees.

    If you are a challenging person, we would be glab you to join the team.

    External Works Engineer (Current Employee) Cairo (Egypt)

    ProsTeam work is the law for all involved in.
    High company references level gives it high opportunities to carry out exciting construction projects.
    Community of VCGP employees is gravitating arround the world from a project to another, reinforcing company strength by its 'embedded network'.

    ConsFree time consuming.
    Better challenge positions at competitor's.
    Difficult balance between private and professional life
    Too much independance may lead to engage ourself (and others) on wrong path.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of what is being learned by junior management, as current juniors are tomorrow's seniors.
    This is the best, most efficient and affordable way to elevate company skills to undertake challenging projects.

    VINCI PLC - working in the dark ages

    IT Project Manager (Current Employee) Solihull, England (UK)

    ProsAs part of VINCI PLC, one has the comfort of having a large parent company looking after them.

    ConsThe leadership at VINCI PLC his highly autocratic, with a strong 'David Joyce' says jump and you say 'how high?' mentality. If you are not a manager then you don't get to park close to the office, nor are you welcome in the manager's corridor. Only come here when invited.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnjoy it while you can

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
