    I have been working at SGN full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Variety of work, scope for advancement through manual staff levels, pay & benefits,

    Cons

    Work / life balance expectations, work ethos, senior managers targets / new work practices training & managers / teams honest assessments of these not being listened to

    Advice to Management

    I believe SGN needs to re-evaluate their work / life balance expectations. I`ve worked from 06:00 for years in order to maintain what i believe to be my responsibilities regarding my role as a "Team manager". You will not get this ethos from younger generation, who i believe quite rightly, are looking for a better work balance in their lives. My generation accepted the fact that if you worked hard ( & clever) you...

    I have been working at SGN for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Secure job. Employment T&Cs are adequate.

    Cons

    As a company, SGN does not like honest comments. SGN used to do an annual survey of employee engagement, but the results kept getting worse. What did SGN do? They tried to adjust the questions to give positive answers but this failed. Did SGN listen to the polls? No, they decided to cut the surveys. Good job SGN.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together otherwise the share holders will do it for you

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. The decision to pause our annual employee opinion survey was taken in May 2016 after eight consecutive years running the survey. During this time response rates exceeded 90%, results improved year on year and we achieved an engagement ...

    I have been working at SGN full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working with external contractors is the best part of the job. Always out on a job meaning you are not stuck in the office.

    Cons

    Ran by people who have no idea what they are doing. An older generation workforce (very few young people, especially in 'management' roles). Poor wage bracket for the job(s) you are expected to complete. No proper recognition or rewards scheme.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better understanding of what it is people do. Attend some training courses yourself, so you do not appear as incompetent employees when asked questions by the people who are supposed to be learning from you. Also, hire some younger people (not poorly paid apprentices), as 80% of the workforce is 40+.
