    I worked at Mears (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good opportunities are available for the correct people. Promotes a positive safety culture. Lead well by CEO so relatively stable place for employment.

    Cons

    Can be quite archaic at times as most of the senior managers are long term and stuck to the way they know.

    Advice to Management

    If we focused on quality as much as safety, we would eradicate the safety issues at source. Also, listen to new ideas

    I have been working at Mears full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The infrastructure is well set up to support employees in the operational field. The company is forward thinking in its use of technology. Communication is very good

    Cons

    There are growing pains as the company gets bigger and those at the very top loose touch with the grass roots.

    Advice to Management

    Do not rely on technology alone to communicate. Conversations should still take place. and when the tech crashes its chaos

    Pros

    Casual Friday and finish half hour early on last Friday of the month

    Cons

    Poor management, workload delegated unevenly, those that work hard go unrecognised and are taken granted for. High staff turnover due to poor staff retention.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your staff give them incentives to work harder.

    Pros

    Not really any, Most staff are two faced and management are awful - constantly feel like you wont have a job if your not in the 'group'

    Cons

    All of the above-do not work for mears if you want a happy work life, as you wont get it. Mears values are laughable, as is the 'training' you get. Mears will happily take you on as long as you have a clear DBS-even if you are clearly unsuitable. Shame. They will also pay you the absolute bare minimum

    Advice to Management

    go back to college and learn how to manage actual people-even the director doesn't have a clue whats going on.

    Good sense of confidence with speaking to people, having a sense of leadership when I am team leading

    Cons

    Pay could be better
    Management is somewhat poor
    No training and development
    No real growth

    Advice to Management

    I am a hard working individual and I am willing to work really hard to be apart pf this time
