    I worked at Vinci part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Quick to respond and get set up with

    Cons

    Manager, lack of training, would scream at the top of her voice within 5 centermeters from my ear at me, very aggressive, in fact, boarderline phsycotic

    Advice to Management

    Get a new manager at Thales in Basingstoke unless you have since summer 2011, the one I had the misfortune of dealing with was more of a thug with power than anyone who should be allowed to represent a company.

    Pros

    Fascinating company working on excellent projects

    Cons

    Poor recruitment methods. Interviews where no feedback is given to candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Speak with those undertaking recruiting and ensure they fully communicate with interviewees - those that succeed and those that don't. Ensure all contact with the company is positive!

    Pros

    As part of VINCI PLC, one has the comfort of having a large parent company looking after them.

    Cons

    The leadership at VINCI PLC his highly autocratic, with a strong 'David Joyce' says jump and you say 'how high?' mentality. If you are not a manager then you don't get to park close to the office, nor are you welcome in the manager's corridor. Only come here when invited.

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy it while you can

    I have been working at Vinci full-time

    Pros

    fringe benefits and work/ life balance

    Cons

    where are the opportunities ?

    Advice to Management

    it's high time you considered your employees as the future of the company. And please stop hiring engineers and just letting them go after 5 years because you do not anticipate enough their will to change

    Pros

    Participer à des projets intéressants.

    Cons

    Postes en fonction du réseau personnel (écoles , connaissances, ...)
    Grilles de salaire en fonction des écoles et non des compétences.
    Managers "politiciens", beaucoup de promesses non tenues, loi de l'omerta pour évoluer.
    La communication à plus de valeur que le travail.

    Advice to Management

    Vos DRH sont des secrétaires avec des avantages hallucinants, en êtes-vous conscients ?
    Vous devriez choisir des profils disposant d'une forte capacité d'adaptation, plutôt que des communicants qui vous font croire qu'ils rentrent dans une boite pré-conçue.

    I worked at Vinci (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Would suit a nine to fiver, non-aggressive environment, laid back approach.

    Cons

    Too slow in progress. Most employees are middle aged and do not have typical London corporate drive. Boring , grey, drab office environment. Curfew imposed on internet use. No voicemail facility on phones so everyone picks up eachother calls! No mobiles/blackberry/s given unless you are senior managment. Not much recognition for modern methods of working - home/remote working. Hours are 8.45am - 5pm with 45min lunch. Generally boring place for young go getter types! But would suit a close to retirement nine to fiver.
