    Pros

    Good team at site level, mix of Spanish and other nationalities provides diverse and interesting workplace. Support from senior managers can be hit and miss but generally good

    Cons

    IT systems are antiquated and slow to provide support. Email capacity (80mb) is shockingly low have to back up every few hours which eats into working times Language can be a barrier

    Advice to Management

    None at the moment

    I worked at Dragados full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is good for Spanish expats who come from dragados as internal promotions or location changes.
    Absolutely zero pros for non spanish expat employees as they are just treated as a number.

    Cons

    No senior management. Expats are treated more favourably. Just an example: everything is paid for by the company for expats. On their first day they get a phone as well. It took 6 months almost for a british director to get a mobile phone.
    No internal comms.
    No investment in IT, company runs on desktops only. There is one laptop for the whole of UK! From 1980s or so.
    No trust for British senior managers as all the power is in Spain. They just get rid of you if you try to challenge them.
    No proper training available.
    HR has no clue of UK employment law.
    No flexible working as Spanish way is that "we work in the office"
    They would sacrifice safety to get work done quicker as they do not understand why we need the safety regulations here in the UK.

    Advice to Management

    Try to accept that UK is not Spain. Do not just dump Spanish people on the UK as this is not working. If you want to win more bids act like a proper company. Invest in IT! Flexible working, etc etc etc
