    I have been working at SGN full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent pay (at the moment)

    Cons

    Not any opportunity for progression unless you're friends with management or family. (Family members seem to progress much quicker than others) Rota has changed to allow maximum of 16 hours working which is a plus. Constant changes to rotas doest allow myself or my family to make arrangements for childcare or to plan my life outside of work. Overtime is slowly being killed. Few years time will probably be none existent. Therefore pay will go down. Can see SGN making Saturday a normal day so no uplift. Multiple shift times which is meant to be for fatigue reasons. But how is my body meant to adjust to 6 different shift start times. If anything I'll be more fatigued. I can't just sleep when I tell my body too unfortunately. Its all money saving tactics. Engineer morale is low. Communication is poor. Wouldnt be surprised if they try british gas tactics and threaten fire and rehire. SGN good days are over sadly.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave your honest feedback. We’re pleased to hear you’re satisfied with our compensation package and concerned by some of your comments about progression. We understand job progression in some areas can be quite limited and it's not always possible to achieve some aspirations, but we’re committed to ensuring equality of opportunity and making sure our processes are fair and objective. We’ve recently commissioned an external specialist to conduct an EDI audit with a view to identifying opportunities to achieve greater equality, diversity and inclusion in our policies and processes. As part of this audit, The Equal Group would like to speak to colleagues representing different business areas to better understand experiences and views on D&I. If it’s something you’d be interested in, please get in touch as soon as possible so I can provide you with more information and arrange a time for you to speak with them. You can reach me at Sophie.Krempasky@sgn.co.uk

    I have been working at SGN full-time

    Pros

    *Good rate of pay *SGN helps graduates with minimal working experience and gives them an opportunity to gain industry skills and knowledge

    Cons

    (SGN are currently going through major changes which has resulted in many dissatisfied people. I would have rated SGN 4 star 2 years ago) *Too much work and not enough employees (they have advised they will not be employee new staff) *Very stressful working environment and asking for help does not resolve issue as there is no one to help with workload. *There is a Policy for temps to be made permanent after 3 year. This is not implemented. *HR does not give anyone the time of day and will ignore your emails and questions. *There is 2 main contracts in SGN (old and new employees) the difference between these contracts are very significant
