    Pros

    Some people benefit from flex hours or work from home options

    Cons

    Senior Management either have no accountability or authority/ability to make decisions. Very UK based - Canadian business is an afterthought. We have a spider webbed mess of a reporting structure; we're manually entering and manipulating data to make it relevant; where technology should be helping it's actually hindering because it doesn't work for Canada.
    Toxic work environments; no resources and no clear vision or understanding of what we actually do.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to work in a country, research it and understand it first instead of invading it. Live your values! Have a purpose other than profit.

    I have been working at Carillion Canada full-time

    Pros

    I work with some great people and i haven't been fired

    Cons

    Promises are broken and company values are "do as i say and not as i do".
    People seem to "Fail Up" rather than suceed by hard work. Senior Leaders only care about their bonus and cutting staff to take on more work. no training. no accountability. communication is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    you need to get rid of deadwood. too many VPs and the employees are being cut and expected to do mulitiple jobs without compensation. You need to hire Canadians who know the business and laws and culture in Canada

    Pros

    Salary, positive environment as long as nothing might make them look bad. If I were male I would have had a great experience.

    Cons

    Boys club. Fired for bipolar symptoms and loss tie at work yet the facility I worked at was a Mental Institution. Thanks for the support. Been unemployed now for two years due to loss of confidence, fear of retribution if tried to use them as a reference. This will probably not reach the comment section but it makes me feel good to finally speak out.

    Advice to Management

    Give us the support we need ie/ human resources. Treat people fairly and equally. I have never been so humiliated or disgusted by another manager.

    Pros

    None that are worthy of mention.

    Cons

    Carillion prides itself on its Leadership Programme. However, the senior managers from that programme demonstrate little in the way of integrity when dealing with employees or subcontractors.

    Advice to Management

    Look external to the business to see what real leadership looks like.

    Pros

    A diverse working environment. Women in senior management positions. International exposure. The opportunity to earn great experience that will make you a highly desirable employee at other organizations.

    Cons

    A lack of employee engagement. High redundancies. Hight turn around. Low morale. Lack of training. The policies come from the UK head office. The UK office is completely out of touch with the Canadian office. No job security.

    Pros

    I can't think of any pros to report about this organization.

    Cons

    The senior leaders are always bad-mouthing each other and their departments yet they appear "friendly" in other situations. There is no team mentality for the organization. There is no confidentiality; I've been told people's salaries and secrets by the people leaders and that is just plain wrong. You cannot trust most people who work here. If you aren't someone's buddy, your voice is null and void.
    They don't know how to run a project; they start without understanding their needs first and make decisions without considering all points. Then when the project isn't going anywhere they throw more managers at it and don't trust the staff in place.
    Some people in the organization didn't like a process that was in place, instead of just working to improve the process, they signed a contract with a new provider to make their lives easier without considering the impact to others and the technology that needed to be in place, they just expected it to magically happen.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Get on the same page. When you put your support behind a project, learn what that means; it doesn't mean throwing a bunch of managers at it, it means being a leader and supporting the team who has been charged with the work.
