    Pros

    The mix of experiences and responsibilities ratcheted upwards as the downturn hit so you are given a chance to learn to multitask fast and keep up with the tight schedule and falling headcount.

    Cons

    Top heavy management, tenders became unattractive compared to the competition. Cutting the number of bodies who do the actual work is only going to weaken the company's position to respond when the market picks up again.

    Advice to Management

    Fund managers aren't interested in safety or due diligence and time required to deliver a job safely.

    Pros

    Good engineering team. on the whole.

    Cons

    Poor management, bullying, intimidation, constructive efforts to get rid of people (why have you done nothing about it - you mean what have we done about it??)

    Very poor work/life balance. Expect you to work all hours.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to convert everyone to staff, then at least treat them like staff. Bullying and victimising people isn't fair on anyone in the professional world. We go to work to work hard and enjoy it, it doesn't need to be spoilt by your contract managers and their minions. A real shame that the bullies are promoted, while the quieter, brighter and harder working individuals are victimised and move on....
