    "Toxic Work Environment"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - CAD Designer in Haydon, England
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Bilfinger full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    None whatsoever. This companydoes not care about it's employees.

    Cons

    Do not work for this company if you value your mental health. Bullying is rife and bad behaviour is the norm - as long as the job goes out on time, then anything goes. As for performance determining your progress - forget it. If you want to progress you need to be tight with your line manager. Cliquey, unprofessional and completely lacking in concern for the wellbeing of employees. I'd rather be on the dole than work...

    Pros

    .... I'll get back to you on this. There isn't much in the way of pros, since they have left the OCA

    Cons

    Your just a number, and you will be dropped if you don't jump through every hoop that HR/logistics set. You can and will be made redundant "Due to a downturn in work" if your not a good boy !

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like dirt, invest in them. Your a services company and your employees provide the service, they are not tools !

    Pros

    good friendly company who understand the needs of the job and not least the difficulties of the job

    Cons

    sometimes understaffed and this put a lot of pressure onto the rest of the staff. also not too good at employing contractors with the right skills.

    Advice to Management

    better planning need to ensure that the right people are employed prior to when they are needed instead of employing at the last minute and having to settle for people with not ideal skills
