    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at TSP Projects full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I work in the head office in York where we have a great open, honest and friendly culture. We have excellent collaborative values where even though everyone is busy we all have time to help each other get the job done. TSP get involved in some of the best infrastructure improvement projects in the country and since the recent transition to new ownership I expect the opportunities to get involved in interesting work to continue.

    The senior managers are very approachable regardless of your level within the organisation. For example I was recently encouraged to send an email the to MD regarding the recent takeover (June 2016) and I was thanked for doing so and received a prompt and positive response.

    The mix of youth and experience is about right and there is great support for graduates and apprentices. Many of the senior engineers have started their working lives here and stuck around for a long time.

    Cons

    Speaking from the perspective of the department I work for, it feels like everyone else is on a much better financial package and work life balance than our team. Each design discipline has a director in charge of that team which has both positive and negative effects. On a plus side, communication is easy within teams and each person has someone in a senior position looking out for their interests. On the negative side it encourages the individual teams to focus a little too inwardly, it can cause unnecessary criticism and tension between the teams.

    Advice to Management

    Three points to make here:

    1. While efforts have been made to improve the gender imbalance, there's still not enough females in leadership roles in the company. I know that this is seen as a weakness by the industry and that TSP have a good model for succession planning.

    2. The outdated appraisal system needs changing to encourage more staff development and allowing goals to be set and achieved. it should be something that is done 6 monthly rather than yearly. It would help with staff retention and continuous improvement.

    3. Communication needs to improve and be more frequent.
