    I worked at Vinci part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Quick to respond and get set up with

    Cons

    Manager, lack of training, would scream at the top of her voice within 5 centermeters from my ear at me, very aggressive, in fact, boarderline phsycotic

    Advice to Management

    Get a new manager at Thales in Basingstoke unless you have since summer 2011, the one I had the misfortune of dealing with was more of a thug with power than anyone who should be allowed to represent a company.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    Enjoy it while you can

    where are the opportunities ?

    Advice to Management

    it's high time you considered your employees as the future of the company. And please stop hiring engineers and just letting them go after 5 years because you do not anticipate enough their will to change

    I worked at Vinci (Less than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Too 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.

    Pros

    Team 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'.

    Cons

    Free 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 Management

    Take 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.
