    I have been working at Taylor Wimpey full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some big projects on at the moment which will really change the business. Good to be so heavily involved. I work as part of a great team which is always a big part of the enjoyment of coming to work. The recent office refurb also contributes to a good working environment which really makes a difference.

    Cons

    The whole property industry is a bit behind the times, but some good projects coming up to change that at Taylor Wimpey. Needs to maintain that focus in the future or we'll fall behind again.

    Advice to Management

    Recognise the value of technology and innovation across the business.
