    I have been working at Tata Steel full-time

    Pros

    There are a few great work colleagues.

    Cons

    No progression, false promises, poor pay, agency staff get messed around, promised perm contracts after 12weeks but still waiting 2years down the line. Greedy managers quite happy to line their own pockets with 'bonuses' instead of investing in upto date equipment. Machines keep breaking down with poorly done cheap 'quick fix' rather than replacing old machines, leaving business orders behind, requesting staff to... do the overtime to catch up with no OT rate!

    Advice to Management

    More training for newly 'trained' managers needed. People skills are poor.

    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Tata Steel part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Varied workload, incredible insight into how things are made, grad scheme is excellent

    Cons

    Stagnation, career progression is limited after initial substantive post

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to move people around. Just because someone becomes key in a role, didn't mean they should or want to keep doing it forever. When people 'get things done', this doesn't always mean they are building the type of culture you'd hope in their wake, notice how others - their team and wider team feel about them too.
