    Competitive compensation, supportive management team, and thrive for customer satisfaction. Very innovative company that has a constant process to evaluate customer concerns to make improvements as quickly as possible to ensure that the customer always has the best product available.

    I worked at JC Bamford Excavators full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, autonomy to make decisions, and work schedule.

    Cons

    No standard operating procedures so things change often and most times not for the betterment of the company. Horrible follow-up. No formal training in any roles; you are expected to learn as you go or figure it out.

    Advice to Management

    This company has the potential to be great but the culture needs huge improvement.

    I worked at JC Bamford Excavators full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A great brand to work for and found everyone at my level and below very helpful and passionate about what they do, they will walk over hot coals to succeeded for the company when needed too, which is needed from to time for various reasons the top level management was inspirational at times also.

    Communication was good holidays was good even thou not flexible but we signed up knowing this was the case.

    Overall enjoyable experience

    Training good but need to invest in more

    Cons

    A few low front line managers are very poor and only out for themselves and their bonus and don't work together across the structures, trying to stitch up other managers, creating politics that's not needed. They do not inspire team or promote teamwork even thou quote it regularly, the only tool they have is to bully people to get what they need, due to this mentality and a few other reasons the general employee moral is low, because of some managers it makes the job a lot harder than it needs to be when people work extremely hard and work extremely long hours for a company only to get treated poorly.

    I can count on one hand good leaders which I have had the pleasure to work for and with so the above is limited.

    The salary does not reflect the level of work and hours needed to get it.

    The company has forgot about it employees and the place runs on good people.

    Advice to Management

    HR some how need to connect to the staff as there are many that don't feel they can speak up about the management teams due to the fear factor. As HR are to detached currently their only interest is protection of the company not the employees.

    It may be good to have the staff that work for a managers to have a 360 appraisal on the manager to enable the staff to grade if are a boss or leader good or poor etc etc giving a voice.

    Don't let good staff leave with lots of experience without understanding why, as listening to managers you may not get the truth of truly what's happening.
