Good place
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.

Greedy heirarchy who collapsed,their own company.
Heirarchy destroyed a company,which cost everyday people their jobs,and livelihood,the general consensus,was that there were too many overpaid managers.

Inflexible place to work
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.

Company no longer trading.
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.

Hospital Porter.
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.

High pressure environment
Never the same day with a consistent changing of priorities in order to maintain the business.

Working capital driven business that placed management in the difficult position of profit & cash maximisation whilst maintaining client satisfaction - which was practically impossible to marry.

I worked there for 10 years & would be there now if Carillion didn't go into financial difficulty.
Very sad times for me and all my Carillion family.

Not a bad place
I was only working here for half a year and I enjoyed working with the team I was in. Despite being temp staff, they always made me feel welcome. Benefits and pay were adequate, although ultimately there was a lot of layoffs due to the area office closing down.
