      Pros

      Very supportive. Managers and leaders are always there to help. Given a sense of independence. Work/ Life balance is brilliant. Tons of extremely competitive perks/bonuses. Training is a high priority.

      Cons

      Still early days, but no cons as far as I’m concerned

      Frontline staff have had enough now

      Pros

      Friendly local working environment. Great local management.

      Cons

      Band 4 managers, atrocious job Sheduling, lack of support. No pay rise for 2 or 3 years meaning pay is too low for what you do as a skilled technician. Standby payments are in the 1990’s still! Management want more out of you for no extra benefit. No thanks or extra bonus for working throughout covid-19. Not allowed to have hardly anytime off around Christmas or any important days leaving us with poor work life balance (they want you in all the time) front line staff negative constantly with little motivation to help out anymore during busy periods. Penny pinching in the wrong places - unable to recruit highly skilled technicians due to low Salary/earning potential leading to taking anybody on who can’t do the job.

      Awful place to work

      Pros

      Good work mates, sick pay.

      Cons

      Very long hours, 13hrs on flat time when on call. Very badly organised, very poor managers. To many different maintenance teams on different terms and conditions, causing bad feeling between teams. They talk about work life balance, but happy to work you all hours with no thought for your family and home life.
