    Pros

    Shifts
    Colleagues

    Finishing my shift
    Going on holiday "Kind of"

    Cons

    Management incompetent
    Pay is unacceptable
    Being under valued by managers who are no better than myself
    No sick pay

    Advice to Management

    Mitie is run by incompetent managers general managers directors even right up to CEO level. My advice to you is move all your managers and executives onto management skills courses because pretty much all the managers etc I have come across or heard about have no people skills at all and care more for their pay packets than their workers. I would also recommend some of your managers go back to charm school as being rude to a already fed up workforce is just NOT on.

    I worked at Mitie full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility with work location and hours for office staff.

    Straight talking CEO.

    Pay not bad but probably McDonalds level when hours taken into account

    Cons

    Don’t make the mistake of thinking the bad reviews on here are just from dissatisfied operational staff. All levels from board director down are leaving or trying to leave.
    No culture at all. You are more ‘just a number’ here than any place you’ll ever work. Huge amounts of long term sickness due to stress. I could go on.

    Business outlook exceedingly poor. Cant attract quality people and losing contracts left right and centre. Full of hugely overpaid consultants who simply take money by verifying what permanent staffers already know.

    MITIE= Milk It Till Its Empty

    Advice to Management

    Recognise people as human beings not resources to be worked into oblivion.
