    I have been working at Carillion full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits packages, such as holiday allowance (inc buy-more option), cycle to work scheme, company cars on offer are respectable. 6 days a year for self-arranged volunteering, there are more work-place arranged volunteering opportunities. Carillion is big on being sustainable, and ethical. Strong supporter of the Forces and returning them to work. Also seeing a massive increase is the Apprenticeships programme. A large company but plenty of work out there.

    Cons

    On some Joint-Venture sites Carillion has the smaller voice, and as a result sometimes it does not feel like you are part of the company - however this is a trait across any JV in the construction industry. Company admin such as IT can take some time to be organised.
