After originally working for SKM (which was bought out by Jacobs), there was a distinct change in culture which was a total shock to the system.
Reading some of the other reviews here i can't believe i was working for the same company. I can only think that It must have been the section i was working in.
They make out they're a caring and sharing Co. Obviously not my manager who treated me, as well as others, like dirt and made no effort to hide it. There was definitely an in crowd and an out crowd.
Training was non existent due to "budget constraints".
In my section there was a continual atmosphere of fear and resentment of the senior management. Unfortunately middle management were made to tow the line and were singing the senior managements mantras. By fear i mean that no one would speak up as they were afraid of the repercussions and from experience those that did we then forced out by putting them in untenable positions. Also from what i experienced HR was there for the employer not the employee.
The money was good but it was increased due to circumstances such as buy out, removal of bonuses, mobile phone allowance. I took a significant cut by leaving but it was definitely worth it.
I suffered it for 2 years and had to leave for my own sanity.
Some interesting jobs.
Management treated you like a piece of dirt
