Pros
Unlimited overtime
Cons
Low pay, little or no support from management.

Not a good company to work for, team leader absolutely no backbone....just sat there. Floor manager no good rolling down the office. If you went to the toilet it was timed...Horrible place to work....if it wasn't for 2 colleagues I would of walked. Company went bust losing thousands of jobs....CEO stole money from company and then hid
Pros
Non
Cons
Floor manager/team leader as much use as a chocolate fire guard

A typical day working at Carillion consisted on obtaining client documents allowing them to continue on with their business polices insurances etc. This job role taught me how to be patient with clients, having to chase clients who may not have the right documents on numerous occasions. Or some clients not wishing to send over documents for legal or financial matters. Management apart of our department was amazing teaching me great communication skills and people handling skills. This job role taught me the importance of rules and regulations, that are needed to be abided to do a job successfully. The most enjoyable part of this job was that It was my first occupation and thankfully I gained a great amount of knowledge and confidence moving forward for my future.

Not a nice place to work but I enjoyed it as I worked within a great team! Shame the management didn't care more about their staff. Always felt that nobody really knew what they were doing and that there was a blame culture rife within the organisation.
Pros
My team!
Cons
Badly managed and disorganised company.

It is a shame that the Company is not longer trading. The building of the new Hospital at Southmead was impressive and a pleasure to work on. The Design Team were very enjoyable to work with.

I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone. Too many chiefs and not enough indians. You don't know who the bosses are always looking over your shoulder. If you do anything wrong the Management are straight into the Supervisors office to report you and your Supervisor has to call you in. It might be waiting for a meal to come out of the kitchen but because your stood waiting for this meal to get warmed up it's your fault. No No.

Pointless to say something as it is closed. It was a good experience working on big projects. Senior members used to help a lot the youngsters. All in all great
