I worked at Bouygues UK full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Continues to win projects
Autonomous working environment
Bad behavior is commended/promoted
Awful management - unsupportive, Directors oblivious to what is happening lower down food chain
Very apparent cultural divide
Unwilling to pay contractors
Ego of it's international success - culture is not that of a UK business
Work-life balance - there is none
Huge turnover of staff
Huge amount of work load on lower paid staff
Huge discrepancies between salary of same grade staff
Not enough staff employed on sites - overworked, overpaid and unappreciated
Managers all of a certain age - some older seen as at their capactiyAdvice to ManagementAdvice
Stop worrying about creating new policies and procedures ( to add to the already existing mountain) and start looking at your staff. They are the cogs to the machine.
You have to leave the culture of having 'the club' - stop surrounding yourselves with French. UK staff are NOT "replaceable with french" if you want to continue to expand and learn in the UK market. Lose the arrogance and listen to those who are familiar with the market.
Benefits of other contractors/companies far outweigh your own. No wonder so many are leaving for your competitors. Not just contractual benefits, but work /life balance. Offer training to those who are performing, not just those who are in 'the club'.
There also too many managers who are promoted for their bad behavior - little work, reliance on others who already are inundated with work and their ability to fluff their successes which are actually the results of their team's efforts.
