Apprentice (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 12 August 2018
I was taken on for a week for work experience when in education. Staff were very friendly. I was taken to show homes to take photographs that were featured on the website, which was a great experience.
Sales Executive (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 5 April 2018
Dreadful people who bullied me and made my life miserable. They have all left and gone elsewhere as have I but they still haunt me as they will not give up on making my life miserable by stopping me moving on wherever they are.
Sales Executive (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 21 February 2018
What can I say started on my 1st day Manager motto " I do not care about the customers along as we retain our 5 star rating! do what your have to even if it means bribing them!" great start! hey! A real insight as to how they work - do not do the pre-reservation check list properly "hence technically mis selling" Do you want to work for an unprofessional company that hide behind the 5 star rating! Go ahead! you have been warned! They try to make it out like they care about the staff and customer but they don't. I purchased a Barratt home and had the same experience thinking it was the sales staff but having worked for them realized it is the culture and management! Resigned the best thing I did! Did not want to be the scapegoat to the rude manager! Long hours no breaks ran me into the ground now I understand why the previous person left in a hurry but it was all "hush hush under the carpet!" offered me the job in the interview "desperate!" springs to mind it was a warning sign to me! to get out and I did in the end! for my sanity!
Good place to work, very supportive management. Everyone's friendly and most importantly everyone is willing to have a laugh also very understanding of medical conditions so take that into consideration with everything you do.
Good pay, good managment and a friendly atmosphere.
Assisted with administration tasks (Former Employee) – London – 13 October 2017
i was only there to gain work experience therefore i have not earned any money, however i was given free meal and snacks that was nice.The hours were reasonable and it was easy environment to work even though it was the first time i have worked anywhere. i have learned that team work was very essential when it came to doing the job. The management was brilliant they were ahead of schedule. The hardest part about the job was there were no people of my age group so i had to socialise with older people which proved to be a challenge but good. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing how the the building was been build and going to the highest floor and seeing everything that is down-it had a great view
Personal Assistant (Current Employee) – Aldgate – 2 October 2017
Working within the Land & Development department, it has potential to be a great department to work in but as one of two Personal Assistants in the department we are missing an Office Manager, Full time HR Co-ordinator, Facilities Manager and Receptionist so I spend a large part of my working day dealing with other roles which are not part of my job description and also not appreciated by my manager.
Treated different depending on the department you are in.
Accounts (Former Employee) – Liverpool, Merseyside – 12 September 2017
Little experience on how to manage staff and there personal situations. Treated different depending on which department you work in. Seem to care only about the profit and not the wellbeing of their employees. Very poor staff morale in certain departments. This was not always the case,early years very happy place to work. Management knew work life balances employees felt valued. New management need to be trained as their inexperience and lack of knowledge has put pressure on their department.
