    Pros

    Great level of pay and project teams are all a good bunch of guys. Great Facilities.

    Cons

    If you are not in the Clique then you are in trouble and could lose your job at the drop of a hat. Directors having affairs with HR staff leading to favoritism over Redundancy periods.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the staff what the issues are and not just the directors. Give more help to staff when redundancies are made to help support them

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Stork Technical Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some good people within the department

    Cons

    Zero Tolerance should be for safety not used by managers to bully those they don't like.
    People need to brush up on their employment law before working here, as the over use of PIPs is unbelievable, if they decide to take a pick at you then look out!
    No career development opportunities.
    Benefits. .only for the under qualified managers

    Advice to Management

    Worse place I've ever had the misfortune of working in.
    Need to audit the so called managers more, as any CIs raised against them then the employee is put on a PIP and forced to comply.
    WAKE UP as good employees are being forced out by bullying.
    People are not machines.
