    I worked at Mitie full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    ALL ratings are for the part of the MITIE group that I worked directly for (Client Services).
    The culture of that business was all about it's people. You were welcomed with open arms and thoroughly supported. I miss the people terribly. If it wasn't for requiring a higher salary and MCS had been a standalone business, not part of group, I probably wouldn't have left.

    Cons

    The wider business didn't live the same culture and when changes were dictated from them, the communication was poor and often led to people feeling disengaged or unsupported.

    I have been working at Mitie full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company are fairly consistent and fair with employees. Ive had some good and bad experiences here, however none quite so bad as CAR*LL*ON so can't complain too much. Pay is good (£45k - Data centre engineer)

    Cons

    No room for progression in my current role, management a bit clicky.
    Ruby has left.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a good job in general, hame about Ruby leaving though, I did think she was a good CEO.
