      I worked at Babcock International Group

      Pros

      Large company, good salary and benefits, a wide variety of work and opportunities available, getting to work with great professional colleagues

      Cons

      Frequent or constant change, lots of uncertainty on many levels, processes are often slow and bureaucratic which can be frustrating. Predominantly top down communication.

      Advice to Management

      Seems to be making some positive changes, needs better communication in some areas and some more attempts at continuity and stability

      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Babcock International Group

      Pros

      Some of the employees are pleasant but overall tone of company and senior management is very unethical and selfish.

      Cons

      Long hours with no compensation, no bonus for hard work or results, overall morale of company is very low, high turnover, poor benefits, below average salary, employees just a commodity. Abusive senior management. North American operations likely going teets up.

      Advice to Management

      Get good lawyers as former employees will be suing for unethical treatment

        9/80 work schedule and paid overtime

        Mandatory overtime, old school way of thinking

        Advice to Management

        Eliminate old school thinking and lead employees based on current generational ways

        I worked at Babcock International Group full-time

        Pros

        Babcock International Group has a diversity of businesses, which I added in my learning and contribution with the company in the area of airports and industries

        Cons

        The disadvantage of working at Babcock International Group is that we do not have the autonomy to manage and make decisions, we often waste time and even business because of the answers from the head office in the UK
