I worked as an electrician for this company. Absolute mayhem on site. Lack of materials to do the job, badly organised, not enough power tools. The company supposedly encourages furthering your education, however site management has no concept of this and expects an unrealistic workload from staff who are doing evening courses.
Pros
Wages there when they're supposed to be.
Cons
On site management is awful

From the moment I started here, I got a bad vibe. Awful culture of bullying and victimisation. Saw first hand how those in leadership positions treated people. Stress levels off the scale and long working hours. They surely must be in breach of the Organisation Working Time Act especially on site where young apprentices are forced to work over 60 hours a week. My advice, stay away and tell everyone else to !

Toxic culture that does not value emoloyees. A culture driven by fear. Several staff ended up in hospital due to stress and pressure of working here. Stay away if you value your health and family

A wonderful company to work for. A very fast paced environment as it is a constantly growing company, a great place for apprentices to start their careers

HR is extremely poor, site management is also seriously below par for a company that wants to compete in this industry, have a lot of very good workers employed but will definitely lose them down the line due to poor treatment and long hours. The company is a big click, if ya don't play for plunkets your another brick in the wall, Apprentice's treated like slaves, no travel.
Pros
None
Cons
Slave drivers

Poor HR team, will only support staff who have family ties. Very poor foremen, also only support staff who have family ties. If your not family dont bother you will be treated as a slave, also always in trouble with the union for how they treat emloyees. Very bad working enviroment. If you want to just be a number go ahead and apply, if your a man with pride and want to progress ypur career stay well away.
Pros
If your a bad electrician and want to get away with it they are perfect
Cons
Zero career progression unless your family

Excellent HR, amazing company, great to work for. Had financial and medical issues during employment which caused me to have to cease working for them unfortunately. Would recommend to anyone as they treat their employees fairly and will go above and beyond to help them.

Good company but need to move with the times some dinosaurs in management. Some of the culture is based on fear not a positive environment. The company has huge potential.
