Competent and strict management
All the BB managers are friendly and always ready to step in and solve the problem immediately if it appears. The safety standards were kept in the priority. It was a pleasure to work in that team. Unfortunately I had to leave the company due to family circumstances.

Nightmare
The worst company I've ever worked for!
Everything was contrary to the training I received rules and regulations was often overlooked in the name of achieving deadlines! Because I was vocal about justified issues I was ousted under the guise of a fictional matrix that served there needs! This experience drove out of construction and I have not and will not return!

Stressful
Go in open minded of the high demands that will be placed on you. Job involved high mileage and long hours.
Best part was being able to work from home preparing for the courses.

Great comradely at peer and subordinate level
Leaving home at 05:30, arriving home at 20:30 plus every day, every week. Progress dependant on a client side team. Planned activities continuously getting cancelled 2 days before start date, with subcontractors ramped up and ready to start. Last minute.com on concrete remedial works up to 14 months after the original activities took place.Bullish senior management, little or no support given! Is cross rail finished yet and trains running?
Pros
None!
Cons
Little support or direction given

Poor
Too many amateurs at management level. Too many bullies. My experience did not matter and how well i was carrying out the tasks. If you answer the management back you are got rid of, like i was.

Stressful and overcrowded with management
The business is very top heavy with not enough focus on the employees at ground level. Not much opportunity for progression within the company. If you are coping with your current job load then they will pile more on until it becomes too much

Productive work place
Productive work place, Driven to achieve targets, but expected to work under own initiative, much of Balfours work is site based so expect to move around as each project finishes.

Full of Bullies in Management
Worked here for a couple of months and the main driver here are the directors micro managing people using their close friend who work for them to spy and report everything to them. It's an organized chaos, Most managers are bullies who only look after their own jobs. Arrongant people who thinks they are the beezneez...Well, they are a waste of space. Turning a blind eye all the time just to look good and say that they have made progress.
Pros
Not sure
Cons
Very complacent

Busy
An average day would be 12 hours and would typically be very busy, especially on larger projects. This and a lot of travel (typically outside of work hours) would contribute to a very poor work-life balance. I really enjoyed the work and my colleagues. There is a good safety culture. Management were mostly supportive.
