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

    Pros

    Salary - fair and annual inflationary increases each year, including an annual lump sum pay award. Plus a pay grade scheme based on merit which means you have the ability to earn more with experience. Good opportunities for progression and development compared to previous employers. Good benefits - generous maternity pay, cycle2work scheme, childcare vouchers, great online portal for retail discounts, pension & death...

    Cons

    Like probably all big companies there can be some elements of teams working in silos. The company can be a little old fashioned regarding things like part time working and I wasn't able to secure this when I needed to (however my managers were supportive in other ways like giving me a phased return to full time, however this didn't suit my personal situation). The senior management...

    Advice to Management

    Ultimately I've taken the decision to leave SGN due to personal reasons - but I would recommend the company as an employer to others. No company is perfect but SGN are working hard on the areas where change is needed. My main advice would be to look at a more modern approach to flexible/part-time working, working from home and to avoiding travel for unnecessary face to face meetings. But also - keep up the good work!

    I have been working at SGN

    Pros

    Excellent scheme for young people to learn and grow in a friendly and well structured environment. Very promising for the future to see the company taking apprenticeships seriously - don't stop running the schemes.

    Cons

    Bit more e-learning would benefit, paper qualifications and interest from the senior management would benefit all sides.

    Advice to Management

    Need to encourage more females to come into the industry through improved recruitment of the scheme to show it can offer opportunities for all. Be seen to give it a bit more support from the top is never a bad thing.

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

    Pros

    There are no PROs in this job. The fact you get to go home away from the place is the most satisfying thing about it. I would rate SGN with 0 stars but unfortunately that isnt an option so ill have to break my heart and offer them an undeserved 1 star.

    Cons

    Employees dont have a voice. HR are supposed to see things from both sides but team up with the company against employees. Constant lies and victimisation towards certain individuals from senior management. Try to control your personal life aswell as working life. Employees losing out on thousands per yer due to managment trying to take advantage of loopholes in contract. Law...

    Advice to Management

    Give employees what they are due. Get off the guys backs especially when it is you who is up to no good. Could say alot more but the words I would use im sure wont be allowed on here. Go sort out your sad pathetic lives.
