      Pros

      - get into the Airport environment. - pizza days

      Cons

      - managers bully you; - they won’t promote you unless you date somebody from the upper management or friends with them (read: favouritism); one of the managers was fired for sexual harassment and that was being covered for 1,5 year by his best friend - general manager (who is still there btw). That caused HR to leave as well. Some managers are extremely moody and one day they love you and then yell for nothing. If you...

        I have been working at Carillion Canada for more than 10 years

        Pros

        Got some great team members.

        Cons

        Management out for themselves and do not care for the state of the company or its employees. Year after year with no salary raise. One year our departments salary bump even went to a different department! Formal complaint filed with CEO and nothing came out of it. Just Google Carillion and read up on all the bad things. Its all true. Group CEO and all other SLT are being investigated and sued for the collapse of UK. When...

        Advice to Management

        It's too late. You guys messed up huge and now everyone else is paying for it. With Carillion now having such a bad reputation (known for not paying their vendors), don't you think it's smart to rebrand and change the company name instead of keeping Carillion? I mean.. what's the first thing someone does when they commit murder? They change their name.
