    Pros

    Got some great team members.

    Cons

    Management out for themselves and do not care for the state of the company or its employees. Year after year with no salary raise. One year our departments salary bump even went to a different department! Formal complaint filed with CEO and nothing came out of it. Just Google Carillion and read up on all the bad things. Its all true. Group CEO and all other SLT are being investigated and sued for the collapse of UK. When confronted by Parliament they excused some of the faults by throwing Carillion Canada under the bus. Company is under bankruptcy protection and employees are leaving everyday for new jobs - no joke.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late. You guys messed up huge and now everyone else is paying for it. With Carillion now having such a bad reputation (known for not paying their vendors), don't you think it's smart to rebrand and change the company name instead of keeping Carillion? I mean.. what's the first thing someone does when they commit murder? They change their name.

    Pros

    Enjoyed the work and the co-workers

    Cons

    Upper management-no appreciation for your work performance. I was told that if your performance review was excellent, then you would get rewarded. No reward, no increment raise, and then company went bankrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better.

    Pros

    Carillion has provided me with a lot of opportunities to explore Canada

    Cons

    The current restructuring and financial position we find the company in

    Advice to Management

    They know enough, they don't need any further advice from me in regards to the current situation we find ourselves in

    I have been working at Carillion Canada full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I don't know any pro. The company is bankrupt due to poor British management.

    Cons

    A British company who brought their friends over, fat salaries, company cars, paid accommodation, paid relocation, sponsorship for obtaining Permanent Residency, bonuses, but nothing for the employees.
    At the end of the day, the Brits swapped $28Mill and forced us to insolvency.

    Advice to Management

    Why did you buy Vanbots if you had no idea how to run a Canadian business? Why Andy Jones didn't take the lease of Simon's Mercedes and he opted for a brand new Range Rover? Why Andy didn't move into the house leased for Simon while the company was still paying for it? The company wasn't doing great and we didn't get any salary raise.

    Pros

    there is no reason to work here. if you get a job offer don't accept.

    Cons

    they promise you everything to get you in the door. once your in it all goes out the window

    Advice to Management

    Hire Canadians. There are more than enough qualified people here. Retain the people who actually work.


  10. "A dog with fleas. Stay away."

    I have been working at Carillion Canada full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are no pros to working for this company that I can think of or that come to mind. Poor pay, poor benefits, broken promises.

    Cons

    It is incomprehensible that the past CEO’s still have a job and the same goes for the Canadian Senior Leadership Team. They do not know how to lead people, build loyalty and trust.

    Everything they touch goes to ruin, they destroy everything in their control. They excel at retaliation and are best known for encouraging and accepting retribution in the workplace

    Advice to Management

    Stay away and hurry to find a new place to work. There are some very good people that deserve a better future and place to work.

    Whoever buys this business “fair warning” do not retain the current Canadian Senior Leadership Team that report into the Canadian CEO. They are incompetent, incapable and will destroy any business they lead.
