Great money, awful culture and work life balance
Worked as a site manager. Company has a cold atmosphere compared to other large housebuilders I've worked for.
Senior management constantly micro manage you, spend more time dealing with director and senior manager visits than being able to do your job. Have to order all your own materials as no buyers.
Supply chain not geared up to deliver on materials requisitioned.
Place massive pressure and strain on managers and site teams, consistently have to work through your break just to catch up on paper work and emails. Not enough hours in a day to do what they expect of you.
Horrible culture and atmosphere. Ruthless outlook, they are trying to become a high speed volume builder doing over 50 a year per site but want to try and keep their 5 star rating from when they did 30 units a year per site. Everyone knows quality and speed are at opposite ends of the scales in most industries.
Money and benefits are fantastic, but no amount of money is worth the stress, pressure and way you are made to feel.
Wages and benefits are industry top end
Ling hours, huge pressure, micro managing senior managers, ruthless blame culture
