    I worked at Hoare Lea full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - An excellent learning opportunity for a Graduate - Well organized seminars and CPD opportunities - CPD is well structured and the path to Seniority is well defined - The people who work here are simply grade A great people (there will be the sharks though, see cons) - Great social side, people are generally very nice here - Incredibly professional attitude - as a first job, you will learn a lot - Interesting clientele and projects - A great name within the industry

    Cons

    - The work load, were do I start?! As a graduate you will be expected to complete your learning records in order to gain CIBSE recognition, this essentially becomes homework, something I came to resent after some time. Next to this is the actual day to day work. The first six months is a slow enough ramp up, but after this, multiple senior engineers will descend upon you with Spec jobs, CAD jobs and everything in between. This why I gave it my title "work hard and win", the hard work does eventually pay off. - The atmosphere can feel charged and competitive at times with people trying to get ahead of one another. This is a challenge to some, and a threat to others... its simply a matter of perspective. - Travel and on site experience can be painfully slow to get offered. I always found this strange, as the on site experience is where you learn the most. On top of this, it only counts for one day and a train ticket into London. - Some managerial decisions can appear a bit aloof and un-discussed with staff. We had an entire office relocation to a site a few miles away. Plenty of lead time was given but it was not presented as an option.
