I arrive at 06:00 and enjoy the peace and quite of the first hour before everybody else turns up. Loads of emails every day to answer, but also plenty of project activity to be getting on with. The good thing is that I am left alone to work to my own schedule. Workplace culture is the best I have ever known, respect and good behaviours everywhere. The hardest part of the job, is knowing when to go home, I really do enjoy what I do. I do leave at about 15:30 to get ahead of the traffic having an hour half commute each way. However, flexibility is key and I have secured an arrangement where I can work from home one day a week.
I’ve worked at many organisations in my long career and I’ve never worked in a more toxic and dysfunctional recruitment team. So much so that this is the first review I’ve ever left. The treachery, distrust, and backstabbing is at levels I’ve never known. We all have our ‘work face’ but how fake people are in the team is absolutely diabolical. I would love to send in psychologists to secretly watch the team because it would make a great study on the evils of a toxic corporate culture.
Good name on CV if you can do a stint and survive.
without doubt the worst example of everything that is wrong in the industry

from an offshore perspective it has been the worst experience of my career. management that cannot manage, supervision that cannot supervise and an inbred culture of fear and repression. top heavy organization with zero focus on offshore staff below leadership level. supervision and management actively sacrificing technicians to save their own positions and career prospects. a phrase from my immediate supervisor sums the whole culture up -"as a supervisor I do not need to understand the process plant"
