    I have been working at Brunel full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great vision from top down, very hard working, smart people make the business run, good culture and diverse team of people, good work life balance for a recruitment/sales business, chances to grow with the company into different roles/locations, overall Brunel is a very good place to work and the leadership team encourage development of their staff.

    Cons

    Lacked some sales development for a while, but seems to have changed now, the database can be a challenge to work with compared with other systems

    Pros

    Awesome leadership from the top! Brunel is always investing in their staff to ensure that their contractors are taken care of and are happy. This in turns makes them competitive with other companies and that the clients know they are getting quality candidates. The work/life balance is great! Life happens and family comes first! I have been with Brunel for a little over 6 years and have enjoyed every minute. Its... all about teamwork...very cliche but "Teamwork really does make the Dream work!".

    Cons

    I believe there could be better structured training on the sales and recruitment side. However, I know management can see this and are working to improve this. Other than that there are not many Cons that come to mind.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your talent and Brunel will become an even more competitive company in the playing field.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Brunel

    Pros

    Some of the most hardworking people work here and will go to the ends of the earth to make sure the work they put out is quality. There are some very good and intelligent people who work there but they are often overlooked and ignored unless you are male or related to someone important.

    Cons

    Some management are toxic and verbally abusive and nepotism is deeply embedded. Meanwhile they struggle refining simple processes and procedures. No one takes responsibility and everyone just points fingers until everyone just forgets about the problem.

    Advice to Management

    The “worker bees” are the ones who drive the business. Clean up the nepotism and you will be surprised how your business and employees grow. Stay away from hiring the “good O’l boy” types for your business department and keep them running your job sites. Running a construction company is very different from running a staffing agency, stop trying to make them parallel.
